On January 5 Manchester United and Swansea met each other in a match that saw Swansea eliminating David Moyes and his side from the FA Cup with a final scoreboard of 2-1.
It was yet another disappointing result for the coach that was expected to succeed the legacy left behind by Sir. Alex Ferguson but has been failing to live up to those expectations. Manchester United are already far behind in the Premier League standings as they are sitting on the 7th spot, instead of wanting to protect their silverware all what Moyes wants to do is have a decent finish at the end of the season.
Goals from Wayne Routledge and Wilfried Bony gave Swansea the victory when they fought it out in the FA Cup encounter.
Possible Starting Lineup
Evra- Evans- Smalling-Vidic
The pressure continues on piling up for David Moyes who is surely starting to think about his future with Manchester United and he has to face a side that they lost against some days ago. Swansea’s season so far has been filled with up and downs but have managed to hold on and secure a place in the middle section of the Premier League standings.
Michael Laudrup should leave almost the same exact formation he used to defeat Manchester United this time again as it has already given him positive results. Ferdinand took a blow on his knee and is not expected to be recovered in time which is yet another hit for Moyes who has already seen much of his players out and unavailable to play due to injuries.

Manchester United will be taking on Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday in what promises to be a title decider even at this early stage in the season. The results on Saturday meant that Arsenal have the ability to extend their lead over the likes of Chelsea and Manchester city with a win over United on Sunday. A victory for Arsenal help them open an seven-point advantage over Chelsea, which is massive even at this early stage in the season, while they are lead over United will be 11 points. It is even more significant because it may put United out of the running for the title.
United, though, are favourites to get three points partly because of their recent form and because of the home advantage. David Moyes has managed to get United to a run of eight matches without defeat, while they are also looking like the United of old at Old Trafford. However, Arsenal are not too far behind in terms of odds. Ladbrokes have put United had 6/5 to win. They have also given spectacular odds of 12/5 for a draw. The possibility of an Arsenal win, which has not happened since 2006, is rated at 11/5.
Arsenal’s away form has seen them when 14 out of the last 15 matches, which puts them in a strong position.
“I said at the start Arsenal have got the same chance as all the rest of us. It’s an open Premier League. They’ve had a really good start at this present time, but you can only decide who’s going to win it come the end of the season. We’re going to try and make sure that isn’t the situation. There’s a lot of football to be played, it’s early on in the season,” said David Moyes ahead of the match.

Chelsea have been one of the most successful clubs in European football over the last decade. They have managed to win numerous league titles and also one Champions League title as well. However, Real Madrid are the favourites according to several bookmakers to take the victory when the two sides meet in Miami. Real Madrid are one of the most successful clubs in world football in the last century. They have managed to win nine European titles, which is a record. They are also valued as the richest sports franchise in the world.
Several bookmakers have given even odds for Real Madrid to win the match, while Chelsea are rated as the underdogs at 3.00. Chelsea come under the match on the back of his successful pre-season tour, which has seen them win all their matches so far. They recently managed 2-0 victories over both Milan clubs. Real Madrid have also been very successful under the new management of Carlo Ancelotti, who has moved Cristiano Ronaldo to a more central position. This is partly because of the interest surrounding winger Gareth Bale and also the departure of Gonzalo Higuain to Napoli a few weeks ago.
Real Madrid have reached the final of the Guinness International Champions Cup after managing to beat the likes of Everton and LA Galaxy. “Real Madrid is playing this competition in pre-season here because I organised it for them. We play against a very special team with very special players, in a competition we are not obsessed to win. I will still make changes,” said Mourinho ahead of the match. “Real Madrid will be a huge test for us, they’re obviously one of the best teams in the world and I’ve had some good games with Cristiano Ronaldo down the years, so I hope this will be another exciting match,” said Ashley Cole.
