The interlull is now well and truly over with the reality of missing out on all trophies, barring the FA Cup, dawning on Manchester United. Nonetheless, the Old Trafford faithfuls are on second spot on the League log and Mourinho will be poised to end the season on a high.
United were in good form just before the break as they three games in a row with victories coming against top sides like Chelsea and Tottenham. Manchester City are already out of sight in the title race but with Liverpool and Tottenham lurking two and four points behind respectively, every win is a must win for Mourinho and his men.
Swansea are currently placed 14th on the League table but they could still be relegated as they are only three points off the relegation zone. United must expect a tough game and forget that the won reverse fixture. The Welsh side won when they visited Old Trafford in the April of 2017 and having won three of their last five games, they have belief and are exuding some form of confidence.
