We take a look at tonight’s EPL clash between Swansea City and Manchester United. Swansea have a hard task ahead of them when they face Manchester United at home. It’s hard to see them matching the fire power and as such we’re predicting a comfortable win to Man U.
When: Saturday, 19 August, 9:30 pm
Where: Liberty Stadium, Plasmarl
Swans might not have threatened so much against Southampton but they’ll be extremely happy with taking a point on the road.
It sets them up nicely for this home game and they’re facing a United team who got off to a flyer.
Romelu Lukaku got off to the best possible start with a brace.
In this team he’ll score plenty and he has power, speed and a very good all round game that should cause plenty of problems throughout the season for the central defenders.
If he gets on a run of scoring in two or three games, then there’ll be some nervous opponents.
KEY BATTLE: Nemanja Matic v Wayne Routledge
Going for a midfield winner in Matic because the team who can get a grip of the game will be the team to go on with it.
Matic started with a first-class game and will be a huge player if he stays on the park and in the type of form we know he can deliver.
Routledge might be the only hope for some Swansea joy but even at home he won’t get many opportunities.
Man Utd can continue their good start with an away win.
Too many weapons in attack and Swansea don’t look blessed with goal-scorers.
Lukaku can get on the scoresheet again and I expect Matic to impress again after a man-of-the-match display in round 1.
