MATCH PREVIEW: Swans v Manchester United

30th August 2015

The Swans are aiming for a third straight victory over Manchester United when the two sides meet the Liberty Stadium on Sunday(4pm).
Garry Monk's men return to home soil following last weekend's 1-1 draw at Sunderland - a result that maintained Swansea's unbeaten start to the campaign.
Attention now switches to the visit of United, who have started the season with two wins and a draw and are yet to concede in the Premier League.
The Swans created history last season by doing a league double over Louis van Gaal's side, while the United boss added the likes of Morgan Schneiderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Memphis Depay to his squad over the summer.

Swans boss Garry Monk: "They have added a lot of quality and depth to their squad and have world-class players. We are the underdogs, but we're at home and we want to put on a performance in front of our own fans.
"We believe in ourselves, we have our own way of working and that will be no different this weekend. But we will probably have to produce our best performance of the season so far to come away with the result."

Man Utd boss Louis van Gaal: "My first match was against Swansea and we lost - now I have my 50th and I hope we can show we have improved.
"It will be difficult to beat them but we are better prepared than this time last year."
