The Red Devils Firm Favourites
Reportedly, Manchester United players Jonny Evans and Danny Welbeck have both been ruled out with injuries for the crucial game against Swansea City at Old Trafford this weekend. Evans sustained a foot problem against Everton almost two weeks ago, while Welbeck suffered an injury in the clash with Manchester City last Monday.
Second placed Manchester United now need to win their last two league matches and hope old rivals Manchester City falter if they are to win an historic 20th English title. In the corresponding fixture between Brendan Rodgers´s Swansea City side and The Red Devils at Liberty Stadium back in November, a disciplined performance gained the visiting team the three points with a 1–0 triumph courtesy of an early goal from Mexican international forward Javier Hernandez in the eleventh minute of the contest. Needless to say, Sir Alex Ferguson´s title chasers are firm favourites to return to their winning ways.
