Manchester United v Swansea City tips
Louis van Gaal should enjoy a winning start as manager of Manchester United
August 11th, 2014
Louis van Gaal takes charge for his first meaningful encounter and United should enjoy a winning start against a Swansea side who were unable to keep hold of Michu during the summer.
Van Gaal is still looking to sign new players, with the Dutchman going for a 3-5-2 formation which will accommodate Ander Herrera and Juan Mata in midfield, while Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney will be deployed as first-choice forwards.
Three at the back should make things interesting, with Wilfried Bony staying put at Swansea, while Gylfi Sigurdsson has returned to the Liberty Stadium from Tottenham although the Icelander might struggle to see much of the ball in this match.
