Swansea City – Manchester United (EFL Cup)

Swansea City and Manchester United are in action on Tuesday at Liberty Stadium, in Swansea, in a match for the 4th round of the EFL Cup. Swansea City arrive here after a home defeat at the hands of Leicester City, for the Premier League, a defeat that left the Swans with only 1 point above the relegation zone. Manchester United, on their turn, arrive here after conceding their first defeat of the season, falling at Huddersfield’s ground in a 2-1 defeat.

Swansea City arrive here after having eliminated MK Dons and Reading in the previous rounds, with the team being able to achieve success in this competition only once, winning this cup in 2012/13, curiously the only time which they went beyond the 4th round since 1964/65. In the Premier League, the Swans are in a very bad form and have only won 1 of their last 6 meetings. At home ground, Swansea City have only won 1 of their 5 matches played this season, losing the remaining 4, with only 4 goals scored and 9 goals conceded. Swansea are going through a bad moment and receive a Manchester side looking to bounce back from their first defeat of the season, which could make life difficult here for the Swans.

In their last 5 official games, Swansea City have a record of 2 victories and 3 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 0-2 win against Reading, for the Carabao Cup. This result was followed by a 1-2 defeat against Watford, a 1-0 defeat against West Ham, a 2-0 win over Huddersfield, and in their last match, a 1-2 defeat against Leicester City. Bartley is out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Nordfeldt – Rangel, Fernández, Mawson and Olsson – Fer, Mesa and Sanches – Narsingh, Abraham and Ayew.

efl cup 1Manchester United, on their turn, arrive here after beating Burton Albion in the previous round, and are the currently title holders of the EFL Cup after wining this competition last season. The Red Devils have conceded their first defeat of the season in the last round of the Premier League, falling at the hands of Huddersfield by 2-1, a defeat that leaves them in 2nd place in the league table, with 5 points behind leader and rival Manchester City. Manchester United have lost all momentum since domestic football resumed after October’s international break and Saturday’s defeat against Huddersfield was arguably the worst performance of Jose Mourinho’s tenure.

The Portuguese coach will demand and immediate response from his players but fatigue looks to be an issue in the squad with injuries starting to build. Away from home, the Red Devils have won 4 of their 7 official matches, losing just 1, with 13 goals scored and 5 conceded. Albeit all his injuries, the Red Devils still hold a very talented squad with plenty of options available for José Mourinho, who might make a few changes here in order to rest some players, and give playing time to players less used so far this season.

In their last 5 official matches, Manchester United have a record of 3 victories, 1 draw and 1 defeat. This sequence of results began with a 1-4 win against CSKA Moscow, for the Champions League. This result was followed by a 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace, a 0-0 draw against Liverpool, a 0-1 victory against Benfica, for the Champions League, and in their last match, a 2-1 defeat against Huddersfield. Pogba, Ibrahimovic, Carrick, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Fellaini are all out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Romero – Darmian, Lindelof, Smalling and Blind – Matic and Herrera – Lingard, Mata and Martial – Rashford.

Swansea City has won 3 of their last 8 direct clashes, drawing 1 and losing the remaining 4.

After their first defeat of the season in the last round, and albeit playing away from home for this league cup, José Mourinho will surely demand an immediate response from his players, so expect the Red Devils to get back to wining ways starting with a victory here.
