Manchester United v Swansea City - MATCH FACTS

MATCH FACTS

The Red Devils have won four and lost none of their five previous Barclays Premier League meetings with Swansea City (D1).

Swansea City have only won one of their last seven Barclays Premier League away games (D2 L4).

Man Utd defender Nemanja Vidic could make his 200th Premier League appearance in this match.

Michu has found the net in two of his three previous Premier League appearances against Manchester United.

Swansea’s victory in the Third Round of the FA Cup last weekend was their first ever at Old Trafford against Manchester United.

In all competitions, David Moyes’ side have lost four of their last six at Old Trafford (W2).

The last time this happened was the end of the 1985-86 season crossing over into the start of 1986-87 (final four home games in 85-86 were W1 D1 L2 and then they lost the opening two home games in 86-87). Sir Alex Ferguson was appointed Man Utd manager two months later.

Danny Welbeck, who scored a brace against Swansea on the opening day of the season, has scored five goals in his last five Premier League appearances.

Wilfried Bony has scored in both of his appearances against Manchester United this season.

However, all six of the Ivorian’s league goals this season have been scored at the Liberty Stadium. United have averaged more points per game in January (2.28) than any other team in Premier League history.
