Bafetimbi Gomis has found the back of the net in the first three matches and Swansea manager Garry Monk will be hoping the star striker continues to find his form against the Red Devils.

United enter this fixture after qualifying for the Champions League group stages following their 7-1 aggregate victory over Club Brugge. In the last league tie, Louis van Gaal saw his side settle for a goalless draw against Newcastle United at Old Trafford.

So far, United have kept four clean sheets out of the five matches played in all competitions and conceded only one goal in the process, which was an own goal from Michael Carrick against Club Brugge.

Sergio Romero and United will be looking for another clean sheet and three points when they take on Swansea on Sunday.

What They Say

Garry Monk: "They have spent lots of money and have brought in some quality players. The super powers and the money they are spending on squads is phenomenal. It is getting more and more difficult to produce results against them. But we are trying, we are trying to impose ourselves."

Louis van Gaal: "My first match was against Swansea and we lost. Now I have my 50th and I hope we can show that we have improved. We are better prepared this year. I don't want to lose again. It's the only club we could not beat or gain one point against [last season]. I hope we can improve and that we can show that we are better than last year."
