Manchester United host Swansea at Old Trafford on Saturday, March 31. Here’s all the info you need to watch the Premier League match.
Traveling to Old Trafford is never ideal for any Premier League team. Having to do it after an international break could make it a little bit easier for Carlos Carvalhal’s Swansea due to more of his players having the week off than Jose Mourinho’s United.
Before the international break Swansea played an FA Cup quarter-final against Tottenham which they lost 3-0. This gives the Welsh side the opportunity to focus all their attention on Premier League survival. They are currently three points clear of the drop.
The Swans have picked up four points out of their last six thanks to a thrilling 4-1 victory over West Ham at the beginning of March, and a resilient 0-0 draw away to Huddersfield in the following week.
Swansea played nearly the entire Huddersfield match with ten-men due to an early red card for Jordan Ayew.
Manchester United most recently played an FA Cup quarter-final as well, beating Brighton 2-0 at Old Trafford before the international break to progress to the semi’s.
Before their FA Cup tie they suffered the embarrassment of being knocked out of the Champions League by Sevilla with a 2-1 second leg loss at Old Trafford.
In a midweek press conference following their elimination from the Champions League Mourinho gave reporter a lecture on United’s, “football heritage,” to explain how their current season is successful compared to recent United Seasons.
The Red Devils have won their last three league matches. They beat Chelsea 2-1 at the end of February, beat Crystal Palace 3-2 to start March, and then made it three wins on the bounce with a 2-1 victory over Liverpool two weeks ago.
