Will Ando start today?

United travel to the Liberty Stadium later today to face a Swansea City side that’s enjoyed the best season in their history, have kept hold of their manager Michael Laudrup and all their key players. Swansea are a tough proposition with a top nine finish last season not to mention giving United difficult games at both the Liberty and Old Trafford.

The pressure is already on David Moyes before the first game has even kicked off and the new United boss will know that should he leave Swansea without any points the circling media vultures will have their day.

Moyes needs a good performance at the very least from his side and although it’s a tad soon to call this game a “must-win” it’s one where a loss would be deemed something of a severely damaging result.

Here’s how the United side could line up:

David De Gea, Phil Jones, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra, Michael Carrick, Anderson, Antonio Valencia, Shinji Kagawa, Wilfried Zaha, Robin Van Persie.

    De gea, jones, ferdinand, vidic, evra, anderson, carrick, zaha, valencia, kagawa, van persie. Should all start d game against swansea city. And i predict swansea city 0 vs 3 manchester united

  2. Chief dario says:

    Moye’s action of leaving rooney on the bench after playing for England shows that he’s on hir way out and moyes is now planning life without rooney.otherwise its amust win for moyes

  3. Ijanusi kayode A says:

    Ths predicted formation is very pathetic, wher do u put rooney? Is he no longer untld player? Wel It left for rooney to decide hir future. The squad is managgeable draw or loose or winnin.

    That good line-up but i prefer also
    dea gea,fabio,vidic,jones,evra,valencia,carrick or anderson,cleversly,zaha,kagawa or rooney ,van persie.

    But i would like to see kagawa in midfield partner with anderson if carrick miss the match because he is doubtful.

    I’d start Rooney and give him 60-70 minutes then replace him with Kagawa. I’ve got this feeling that Rooney might want to prove something to Moyes
