Swansea City take on Manchester United in the Premier League clash at the Liberty Stadium on 6 November (Sunday).

Where to watch

Kick-off is at 3pm GMT. Catch the highlights on Match of the Day 2 on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10:30pm GMT.


Swansea started the 2016/17 campaign with a 1-0 win over Burnley away from home, their only win of this season. Their poor form saw them sack their coach Francesco Guidolin and replace him with Bob Bradley in October.

Under the guidance of the American manager, the Welsh club have played four matches, losing three of them, while settling for a draw against Watford. So far, at home, Swansea have taken two points with a draw against Chelsea and Watford.

Bradley will be hoping to pile more misery on United, who are also struggling in the league. A victory will be a massive boost for Swansea before going into the international break.

United enter this fixture after suffering a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Fenerbahce in the Europa League clash. The only consolation for the Red Devils was that Wayne Rooney got his name on the scoresheet.

Jose Mourinho has several selection headaches for the weekend fixture as he is already without midfielder Ander Herrera due to suspension. In addition to this, Paul Pogba suffered an injury in the European fixture and is doubtful for the tie against Swansea.

United will be looking to end their poor run in all competitions by sealing three points on Sunday. The Portuguese tactician will be aware that a victory over Swansea will be crucial for him and his side.

What managers say

Bob Bradley: "I've talked to him on the phone and traded some messages with him in the last year. We have some common friends. He's been in the United States a lot with teams in preseason and in many of those situations I've had a chance to see his teams train. He's always been gracious in those moments."

Jose Mourinho: "He [Mkhitaryan] has to do more. It's as simple as that. We have big expectations at this club, lots of players for these positions and he has to play better than Mata, Lingard, Martial – he has to play better than them. It's as simple as that."
