Manchester United will host the relegation fighters, Swansea City, at the Old Trafford looking to cement their Champions League promotion spot. The Red Devils have four consecutive victories in front of home supporters in the Premier League, and they intend to extend their impressive home streak against the struggling Welsh side, who failed to win on the road in seven matches in a row in all competitions. Following the Champions League elimination, Jose Mourinho can’t afford to disappoint in the national championship especially against a team, who has only one win in ten away games. The twenty-time EPL champions have just one home defeat in fifteen games this season in the league, and they’ve conceded only seven goals, which makes them the best defensive team in England, while The Swans have immense problems in the final third, given the fact they’ve only netted ten goals in fifteen away matches.
Mourinho doesn’t have Daley Blind, Ander Herrera, and Phil Jones at his disposal, as they are all out with injuries. Scott McTominay has suffered an ankle injury, but he could recover for the encounter. Jordan Ayew, Wilfried Bony, and Leroy Fer are unavailable for the visitors, while Renato Sanches and Renato Sanches still may find themselves on the list of travelers
