The live Sunday lunchtime kick-off in the Premier League comes from the Liberty Stadium as Swansea take on league leaders Manchester United. It is no surprise to see that United start favourites for the match but Swansea are treated with respect in a fixture that could offer some real entertainment for punters.
United started the weekend six points clear at the top of the table and they go in as 8/13 odds on favourites to pick up another three points with Coral on Sunday. Swansea are priced 9/2 and the draw is 11/4 as they bid to pick themselves up after suffering successive league defeats, including last weekend's 1-0 loss at Tottenham.
The Swans have only lost two of their last 10 in all competitions but those two defeats came in their last three thanks to the defeat to Spurs and a 4-3 home loss to Norwich. Those disappointing results were sandwiched by a slightly fortuitous 1-0 win over Middlesbrough in the Capital One Cup, which booked their semi-final place against Chelsea.
Those recent performances will be a slight worry as they look to strengthen their position in the middle of the table, although Michu continues to bang in the goals. The Spaniard is increasingly looking like the signing of the season after scoring six goals in his last six league games and he is a best price 7/1 to score first or 2/1 to score anytime.
Michu ensures Swansea offer a real goal threat but they remain defensively suspect with just two clean sheets in their nine league games at the Liberty Stadium. United have also struggled to keep the opposition out, keeping just one clean sheet in 13 away from home in all competitions, and both teams to score is 1/2 on this weekend.
The return of Nemanja Vidic should help to shore up the United defence, while they remain as potent as ever as an attacking force. Wayne Rooney has been in electric form of late as he has scored five in his last four outings, with Coral bookmakers going 4/1 he scores first and a best price 13/2 he scores two or more.
Rooney was on target in United's 3-1 win over Sunderland last weekend and in truth he should have scored more as the Reds eased to a rare comfortable win. They may have won their last five in a row in the league but they have sneaked home in quite a few of those matches, particularly away from home.
Their last five away games in all competitions have seen them edge past Villa 3-2 and Norwich 4-3 before losing to Galatasary in the Champions League. They then beat Reading 4-3 and Manchester City 3-2 and taking into account all of those one-goal margin wins it could be worth taking advantage of the 5/2 on offer for the match to end in a tie with Swansea +1 goal in the handicap market.
Another feature of United's away matches has been the plethora of goals and 10 of their last 12 have gone over 2.5. Over 2.5 goals is 8/15 odds on for this Swansea v Man Utd match as Wayne Rooney looks to continue his fine scoring form.
