PHOTO: Possible Swansea vs Manchester United line-ups

Manchester United travel to Wales at the Liberty Stadium as they try and steady their top 3 spot, while also piling pressure on the two above.

Team News

The hosts are boosted by the return of Gylfi Sigurðsson, who will be available after serving a three-match ban due to the red card he picked up in the 3-1 defeat against Blackburn in the FA Cup. He will go into the first team directly, and could replace Jack Cork, who debuted for the Swans against West Brom in last weekend’s 2-0 defeat. Wayne Routledge and Marvin Emnes are also fit, giving Garry Monk more selection options.

Manchester United meanwhile, will welcome back striker Robin van Persie after a short injury spell. The Dutchman missed the Red Devils’ midweek FA Cup win over Preston with a minor knock, but is available for the trip to Wales. Phil Jones also returns from his knee problem which he suffered in the 3-1 win over Burnley

Swansea: (4-2-3-1): Fabiański; Naughton, Fernández, Williams, Taylor; Ki, Cork; Dyer, Shelvey, Montero; Gomis.
