2013-08-17 - Swansea v Manchester United

A Sports Betting Preview by Auls

Swansea v Manchester United
Football: English Premier League
Saturday 17 August 2013 - Kick Off 5:30pm
This game is live on TV


Swansea


I was not the only person that thought Swansea would struggle last season as Brendan Rodgers moved to manage Liverpool and Michael Laudrup had not managed in England before. However, the Danish manager kept Swansea playing in a manner they were familiar with and also made some astute signings, none more so than two million pound Michu. The Spaniard took to the Premier League like a duck to water and his goals helped Swansea finish comfortably in the League and also to win the Capital One Cup which means a Europa League place.

The Europa League has already begun which means Swansea have two competitive games under their belt to open the new season and there are a lot of positive vibes at the Liberty Stadium. A chance to renew rivalry with Cardiff City will inspire the fans as they look to finish in the top half of the Premier League again after ending last season in 9th place. Laudrup will want his team to be a little more consistent at home where they ended 6-8-5 last season.

Swansea opened this season with a 4-0 win over Malmo here that ensured progress in Europe, but they need to pick up some early momentum in the League after a poor end to last season which was understandable after their League Cup win. The Swans won just 1 of their last 10 games in the League and they finished the season by failing to win any of their last 5 home League games, losing 3 of those.

Jonathan de Guzman is the only absentee in the squad and is likely to be back in the squad next week.

Manchester United


It is time for David Moyes to take charge of his first real competitive match as manager of Manchester United and he hasn't been impressed with the fixture list that United face in the opening two months of the season. Moyes eased some of the pressure by picking up the Community Shield last weekend at Wembley Stadium, but that could increased hugely if United make a poor start to the season which is possible with games at Swansea, Liverpool and Manchester City to come as well as a home date with Chelsea.

Sir Alex Ferguson is no longer manager of Manchester United after 26 seasons of almost continuous success, but he did sign off in the best possible manner by leaving United as Champions of England. The team won the title at a canter last season, but a lot of comebacks, late goals and the manager they had contributed to that and it is a big ask for them to repeat as Champions this season without some investment in the squad. United finished with a 12-5-2 away record in the Premier League last season, and were also top away scorers.

Manchester United have had a mixed pre-season which follows their end to the season when they won just 3 of their last 9 games in all competitions. The win over Wigan would have been a boost of confidence, but United ended last season with just 1 win from their final 5 away games in all competitions.

Rafael came off injured last week, but was suspended for this opening game anyway. Michael Carrick withdrew from the England squad on Wednesday with an eye injury, but is expected to start on Saturday, while Wayne Rooney played on Wednesday and is unlikely to be involved. Nani, Ashley Young and Javier Hernandez are all doubtful.

Head to Head


Manchester United have won 3 of their 4 Premier League games against Swansea since the latter returned to the top flight, although United needed a late goal to beat the Swans at Old Trafford in Sir Alex Ferguson's final home game as manager.

The game at the Liberty Stadium ended 1-1 last season, while United were 0-1 winners the season before.

Prediction


Swansea are a side that can make life awkward for any team they play in the Premier League simply down to the manner in which they can keep the ball for long periods. The bottom line in football is you won't concede goals if the opposition don't have the ball and that is a mantra Swansea certainly live by.

I can understand why Manchester United are so short in the market considering they won 12 of 19 away games last season and they are the Champions, but they do look too short to interest me.

A more interesting look at United's away wins show they only won 3 of the games at the 10 teams that finished directly below them in the League. Swansea themselves only won 1 home game against a side that finished above them in the League, although they did manage to avoid defeat against the sides that finished in the top three here.

I was considering backing Swansea on the Asian Handicap to avoid defeat here, but I am not convinced they have enough to win the game considering their record against teams above them here last season. The year before they did beat Arsenal and Manchester City at the Liberty Stadium, but this game has all the makings of a draw in my opinion.
