Swansea vs. Manchester United kicks off Matchday 2 of the 2017 Premier League on Saturday at the Liberty Stadium in Wales. Manchester United is looking for their second win of the season while Swansea just wants to contain the Red Devils and score their first goals of the season.
Manchester United opened their Premier League campaign with a 4-0 hammering of West Ham United at Old Trafford last week, per Sky Sports. Romelu Lukaku opened his United account by scoring a brace in 52 minutes with Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba adding goals in the final five minutes of the game.
The Red Devils had a busy summer as they added Lukaku to help ease the loss of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. They also signed defender Victor Lindelof and midfielder Nemanja Matic to bolster an already impressive roster. Only Wayne Rooney and Adnan Januzaj were sold this summer to Everton and Real Sociedad, respectively.
On the other hand, Swansea held Southampton to a goalless draw last week at St. Mary’s Stadium. Swansea only created a few chances as the absence of Gylfi Sigurdsson was evident. According to Wales Online, the Icelandic attacking midfielder officially joined Everton on Wednesday after refusing to go on the club’s pre-season tour.
