Swansea City vs. Manchester United Preview

Table toppers Manchester United travel to Swansea City on Sunday afternoon, looking to restore their six point advantage at the summit.

Michael Laudrup’s men  lost their second successive Premier League game last time out; Jan Vertonghen’s  goal enough to give Tottenham Hotspur all three points at White Hart Lane seven days ago.

Angel Rangel looks set to miss out for hosts as he struggles to recover from a calf injury, though Pablo Hernandez and Michel Vorm are set to return to the starting line-up.

Top scorer Miguel Michu is best priced at 8.5 (15/2) to open the scoring, whilst he is a 3.4 (12/5) shot to hit the back of the net at any time during the match.

Swansea are generously offered at 5.5 (11/2) with a variety of bookmakers, with the visitors firm favourites at a best price of 1.7 (7/10). The draw is widely available at 4.0 (3/1).

Manchester United go in to the game having won ten of their last eleven league games; the latest of those victories coming against Sunderland last Saturday.

Shinji Kagawa and Rafael will miss the trip to South Wales through injury, but Nemanja Vidic is in contention to start his first game since September.

Along with Michu, Robin Van Persie leads the Premier League goal scoring chart, with both players having hit twelve goals already this campaign.

The Dutch striker is favourite to get the first goal of the game, with Stan James offering the best price of 5.0 (4/1).
