Sun 6 Nov 3pm Kick off How’s Swansea’s form? Not great at the minute. They haven’t won in the league since 13 August and currently sit second bottom. However, under a still relatively new manager in Bob Bradley, they’ve shown some signs of improvement, though they were beaten 3-1 by Stoke City last time out. The Swans will be itching to get some points on the board soon to start climbing the table. What’s our head-to-head record like? In recent years, United have found Swansea to be tricky opponents, especially at the Liberty Stadium, where we’ve won only two of our five clashes. However, our last meeting in January ended in a 2-1 home win for United, with Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney on the scoresheet, so we’ll be looking for a similar result this Sunday. Is there any team news? Paul Pogba limped off early against Fenerbahce and is doubtful, alongside Chris Smalling, who missed the trip to Turkey. Antonio Valencia and Eric Bailly are definitely out with long-term injuries, while Ander Herrera is suspended after his sending-off against Burnley. The game may come too soon for Phil Jones, who lacks match fitness despite returning to training this week. Bastian Schweinsteiger has also returned to first-team training but has been ruled out by manager Jose Mourinho, who said after Thursday’s game: "It’s too early for him. He’s been training with the team for three or four days but he’s not ready to play football at that level yet." Our injury/unavailable list is pretty ridiculous at the minute. Not available: Pogba Herrera Smalling Bailly Valencia Schweinsteiger That's 5 first teamers missing for tomorrow! Anyway, here's how we should line up. DdG Shaw Rojo Blind...
Thursday 3 November, 2016, 6:00pm Live on BT Sport 3 With United's league position not great at present, it looks like Mourinho has started to take this competition more seriously as he confirmed yesterday: "My opinions change because the rules change and the Europa League winner qualifies for the Champions League. For the past couple of years the Europa League has had new meaning for big teams." He also said of Phil Jones, "We do not have enough time for him to get in a good condition. Maybe we have to play him," so it seems likely he will start with Smalling and Bailly both out. I rate Jones when he is fit and it will be good to see him back. Prediction: Fenerbahce 0-1 Manchester United (Phil Jones header!)
Saturday 29 October, 2016, 3:00pm This is the type of game at Old Trafford against mid lower half opposition that was our bread and butter under Ferguson. We would turn up, attack for 90 minutes, score a goal or three, job done. How times have changed when I'm not entirely confident of the 3pts. Prediction: United 2-1 Burnley (But still confident enough to predict a win) What's everyone else going for?
Cunts, 40 minutes until kickoff and nobody has created a thread.
