Reasons for Swansea v Manchester United Bets
Manchester United are strong favourites to win this clash for a variety of reasons: superior quality in their side, in better form having enjoyed a superior pre-season and opening day, whilst they’ve more of a competitive edge from participating in the European Super Cup prior to their league kick-off.
Mourinho’s men look determined and sharp with the focus of landing this season’s Premier League title and will be looking to earn a similar victory at the Liberty Stadium to the one of last season.
United were irrestible against West Ham while the Swans offered little attacking threat in their draw at Southampton – where their goal was peppered with 21 attempts.
United have kept three Premier League clean sheets on the bounce and have only conceded more than one goal in a league game in North London since last October.
Meanwhile the hosts will be without their main attacking talents once more and appear likely to struggle with creativity.
