Jose Mourinho and his side have a date with Swansea City as the Welsh side visits Old Trafford this weekend. It promises to be an intriguing encounter as both sides engage in 90 minutes contest at the Theatre of Dreams.
Jose’s side will be overall favourite going into this fixture but recent slump against Swansea City suggests otherwise as we wait to see what happens on the pitch between both sides.
This has been more evident for United especially at home as they lost 1-2 to Swansea City thanks to Sigurdsson’s free-kick on the occasion last season.
With the international break come and gone all eyes will be fixed on the Premier League this weekend as the red devils welcomes Swansea at home.
On this note we evaluate the reasons why Manchester United must beat Swansea City at old Trafford.
Appease the Fans
The Manchester United side has had a mixed season in all competition as they exit the UEFA Champions League after a 1-2 home defeat against Sevilla. The Spanish side drew goalless with United in the first leg only to shock United 1-2 away from home. Substitutes and new French national team invitee Ben Yedder stole the show with two quick fire goals he got on the same sheet in the 74th and 78th minute of the game.
United pulled a back through Romelu Lukaku but it was too little late as United Champions League campaign ended in a twinkle of an eye. This is not appealing to any United faithful (fan) who wants to see their side play in the latter stages of the competition.
With the Swansea watch at home, it might be an opportunity for the team erase their sour memory against Sevilla and many more with a convincing (display) against the welsh side this weekend.
Perfect Easter Gift (Message)
The Manchester United side trade tackles with Swansea on the eve of the Easter. This is a perfect time for the team to erase doubt and endear themselves to the supporters and world viewers at large.
On the Easter mood, the Red Devils can create the positive euphoria for the fans (capture the moment) who comes in week out to support the United team.
This would be a wonderful way to appreciate the fans followership and enthusiasm along in the season as Swansea visit.
A resounding victory would be ideal to create an atmosphere thus getting the fans in the festive mood as they celebrate Easter on Sunday.
United performance would go a long way in sending a compliment of the season message to the fans that spend their time and funds visiting United game all along this term.
End the Swansea Hoo-Doo
The time is now to end Swansea’s City threat over Manchester United as Old Trafford welcomes the visitors this weekend. It will be a massive turn around as United host Swansea with the welsh side still in the relegation pool.
A defeat for Swansea would go a long way to define their season as regard to their current (relegation) predicament.
The likes of Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata had the quality (ability) to set the tone for United victory as both sides lock horns this weekend.
