Overview

United won the Premier League title by defeating Aston Villa 3-0 at home last month. The Red Devils will receive the trophy after the game. The fixture will also be the final home game for veteran midfielder Paul Scholes, who has decided to follow his manager and mentor into retirement.

United come into this game following last weekend's 1-0 home defeat to Chelsea. Juan Mata scored the only goal of the game, with a strike that took a deflection off United's Phil Jones.

Since securing the title, the Red Devils' form has dipped, and they have failed to win in their last two games. United players will be desperate to secure a win over Swansea, to allow their legendary manager to go out in style.

Swansea, on the other hand, enter this game after a 3-2 away victory over Wigan Athletic.

Michael Laudrup's side now sit ninth in the Premier League table, with 46 points from 36 games. Swansea have managed just one win in their last five, and victory over the Premier League champions would propel them into the top half of the table.

Team News

Paul Scholes

United have received a boost with the return to fitness of Paul Scholes. The 38-year-old is likely to play his last home game alongside Michael Carrick in central midfield, with veteran Ryan Giggs out on the left. Rafael will miss the remainder of the season after his red card for a tackle on Chelsea's David Luiz. Robin van Persie is likely to lead his side from the front, alongside Wayne Rooney.

Probable Line-Up: De Gea; Jones, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra; Valencia, Carrick, Scholes, Giggs; Van Persie, Rooney

Laudrup has few injury worries. Swansea star striker Michu is ruled out with a hamstring injury, while Dutch international goalkeeper Michel Vorm remains doubtful. Gerhard Tremmel is likely to start in goal, while skipper Ashley Williams will be the key man in the heart of the Swans' defence. 

Probable Line-Up: Tremmel; Rangel, Williams, Monk, Davies; Britton, De Guzman; Routledge, Pablo, Dyer; Shechter
