Manchester United get the Premier League weekend underway on Saturday, travelling to face Swansea City in the early kickoff. José Mourinho's men should be buoyant after thrashing West Ham United in their curtain-raiser, and anything other than three points would doubtless be a disappointment against a team expected to be battling the drop this season.
Swansea got their season off to a solid start last weekend, holding Southampton to a goalless draw away at St. Mary's. However, Paul Clement's squad doesn't offer supporters much reason for optimism; on paper, they’re certainly one of the weakest teams in the division.
Their woes are compounded by the absences of Ki Sung-yueng, Nathan Dyer and last season's top scorer, Fernando Llorente, who are all currently on the treatment table. Veteran midfielder Leon Britton faces a late fitness test. United will still be without Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Ashley Young, though should otherwise have a full-strength team available.
