Premier League 12:30pm Saturday 19th August Liberty Stadium Team News For the second successive match, Jose Mourinho will have an almost fully fit squad to choose from. He confirmed in an interview with MUTV on Friday that Luke Shaw and Ashley Young are set to step up their recovery from injury by playing for the Under-23s on Monday night, leaving Marcos Rojo as the only player currently sidelined. Meanwhile, Swansea have revealed top scorer Fernando Llorente is still absent after the Spanish striker missed pre-season and the stalemate against the Saints with a broken arm. Midfielders Ki Sung-Yeung and Nathan Dyer are also injured, while Icelandic star Gylfi Sigurdsson has completed his move to Everton on a five-year deal and Leon Britton is doubtful with a back strain, but new £11m signing Roque Mesa could be handed his first start if Britton doesn't recover in time.

Forward Andy Carroll (groin), Diafra Sakho (back), midfielder Manuel Lanzini and Cheikhou Kouyate (both knee) all continue their rehabilitation. Opta stats Three of the last five Premier League games between these two clubs have ended in a draw, with one win apiece in this run. United are unbeaten in their last nine Premier League home games with West Ham (W7 D2 L0) - their last home league defeat against the Hammers was on the final day of the 2006-07 season.
