Manchester United's Bid For First Must Go Through Swansea

United is hosting a tired but talented Swansea team and City travelling to the home of the hottest striker in the country. There is no doubt that Sir Alex Ferguson has managed to relieve some pressure from the shoulders of his side, but Roberto Mancini and his team can put that all back on this Sunday.

Of the two sides, Newcastle and Swansea, you’d probably say the Magpies were more motivated at present given that they are chasing a Champions League spot, but the Swans can cause any side trouble.

United themselves are evenly more heavily favoured to beat the Welsh side, at 1/5 with BoyleSports compared to the 18/1 you can get on an away win with WilliamHill.

Ironically, with Ferguson’s side at home and City away, it is the road form of United that has been so impressive, and the Blues have excelled at home, but the time for excuses has past and now we’ll see who wants it the most.
