Alarm bells would be sounding in Old Trafford if Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge, Ferguson never in his entire 25 years at Manchester United went through such a bad run at home as David Moyes is enduring currently. Moyes and his Manchester United team just cannot win at the moment. Having won six games on the trot Manchester United have now lost there last three in all competitions and amazingy have lost four of their last six home games, something that never happend in the Alex Ferguson era as already mentioned. Luckily for United two of the last three losses were in cup competitions and tomorrow's opponents Swansea were responsible for one of those losses with a 90th minute winner from Wilfred Bony. David Moyes will look to his club captain Vidic to lead by example tomorrow and I expect the Serbian to be back in the starting line up on short rest having played Tuesday night against Sunderland. The return of Wayne Rooney though is the big news for United fans and Wazza will have alot of pressure heaped on his shoulders tomorrow. Look for Rooney to be the focal point for United and Moyes tomorrow in a must win game. United have a long list of injuries with Van Persie, Ferdinand, Young, Nani, Fellaini out with knocks.
Michael Laudraup has his own list of injures that include a number of his best players with Michu, Dyer, Hernandez, De Guzman and Vorm all out injured. Wilfred Bony has come good though in Michu's absence and has scored four goals in the last two games against Manchester City and United,something very few players will accomplish this season. Swansea will go to Old Traffordin confident mood having beaten manchester United there last weekend in the FA Cup. Can the Swans pull off another shock?

I think this is a bounce back game for Manchester United andI expect them to get a hard earned win. I think Rooney, Wellbeck, Januzai andKagawa will all be key and instrumental players for United. Swansea play a good brand of passing football but very few teams go to Old Trafford and win, almost no teams go to Old Trafford in successive weekends and win. I just see this as a big bounce back game for the home team and am taking them to win outright big. I will also be taking Manchester United -1 on the handicap at over 2/1.
