David Moyes’s men will be hoping for a place in the FA Cup fourth round when they host Michael Laudrup’s side
Manchester United welcome Swansea City to the Old Trafford on Sunday evening in continuation of the Third Round English FA Cup.
Both teams began 2014 in disappointing fashion as they tasted defeat in the Premier League on New Year’s Day .
David Moyes’ men recorded their fourth home loss in the EPL after bowing 2-1 home against Tottenham Hotspur but are chalked up as 8/15 (1.53) with Ladbrokes to dismiss the Swans.
Michael Laudrup’s side were beaten 3-2 by Manchester City and are available at a chunky 6/1 (7.00) with Ladbrokes to beat the hosts and send them out of the competition while the same firm go 16/5 (4.20) that the game goes to a replay at Liberty Stadium.
Manchester United will be without Marouane Fellaini, Nani and Ashley Young, while Robin van Persie, Rafael da Silva and Phil Jones face late fitness tests to determine their availability. Swansea have a fair share of injury woes with Michael Vorm, Nathan Dyer, Michu and Pablo Hernández their biggest misses. You can back both teams to score at 17/20 (1.85).
Swansea have failed to win any of their last seven matches in all competitions and, having won just one of their last 10 matches away from home this season, they face a stiff test against the Premier League champions this weekend.
Danny Welbeck has been in fine form the Red Devils, having bagged five goals in his last six matches and the juicy EVS (2.00) quote from Ladbrokes for the 23-year-old England striker to net at any time represents outstanding value and should be backed accordingly by punters this weekend.
Swansea have kept just one clean sheet in their last 14 outings in all competitions and the home side can get amongst the goals this weekend. Expect the Red Devils to score first and last at 1/2 (1.50).
