Swansea vs Manchester United Prediction & Betting tips
In the second round of the English Premier League, Swansea City will receive Manchester United’s record champion in the Liberty Stadium. The first games of the new season are significant for the rest of the season. It shows here whether in the summer was worked well and correct personnel reinforcements were brought. A poor season start may lead to a downward trend that is not so easy to stop.
The hosts Swansea City kicked off with a 0-0 draw against Southampton in the new season. The performance in this game was manageable and the 0-0 was justified. The team of Paul Clement gave some good opportunities and finally failed the bad opportunity. Manchester United, on the other hand, started the new season furiously and beat West Ham United 4-0. The great performance of the Red Devils underscored the company’s ambitions this year to bring the championship title to Manchester.
The results of the direct duels of these two teams are quite balanced in recent years. The last five games ended with two victories for Swansea and Manchester and once they parted with a draw. The hosts will do their utmost to get the first goal of the season – Manchester will try to confirm the great performance of the last game against West Ham and to abduct the three points from Wales.
As mentioned above, Swansea City started a 0-0 draw against Southampton in the new Premier League season. This first game ran on a moderate level – both teams failed at their bad chances. Southampton was the better team over long stretches and dominated the action. This was also reflected in the goal scoring, where Southamption scored 29 shots and Swansea scored only four. It will not be enough for Manchester United to get at least one point. The fifteenth of the pre-season still has a lot to improve to put the big club from Manchester before problems.
The dominating topic in Swansea is currently the change from Gylfi Sigurdsson to Everton FC. This transfer lasted throughout the summer and finally ended. The Icelandic star changed the club for 50 million euros. Although this transfer spills a lot of money into the coffers of the club from Wales, this is certainly a great sporting loss.
Pleasing is the return of striker Fernando Llorente into the team training of the Welsh. After an arm injury, the Spanish striker recently joined the training and could be an option for the match against Manchester United.
Manchester United started furiously into the new season 2017/18. The team of coach José Mourinho underlined his title ambitions in the game against West Ham United and finished the opponent 4-0. This result also reflected the dominance of their game. Manchester had more shares from the game, won more two-fights and had more shots on goal.
The high transfer sum for the striker Romelu Lukaku turns out to be more than justified. In the European Supercup the Belgian scored the only goal and also against West Ham United the bully striker scored two goals. On the defense of Swansea City is waiting for a big task! Nemanja Matic, a new addition, showed a great performance in his first league game for Manchester United. He ensured stability in the midfield, stuffed gaps and held the back off the offensive. Personally Mourinho can draw from the full. Apart from the long-time injured Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw and Ashley Young are all players of the squad ready for action.
