FA CUP Man Utd Vs Swansea (1 : 2) On Sun 5 Jan 2014 by sureteeboy(m): 7:16pm On Dec 28, 2013
Manchester United will be
looking for a second chance to
kick-start 2014 when they host
Swansea City in the FA CUP THIRD
ROUND on Sunday.
David Moyes’ men fell to a 2-1
home defeat to Tottenham in
the Premier League on New
Year’s Day and are enduring
their worst home league form
for more than a decade.
United had won their previous
six fixtures in all competitions
and already have a victory over
Michael Laudrup’s men to their
name this season, winning 4-1
at the Liberty Stadium on the
opening day of the campaign.
The Premier League champions,
who have not won the FA Cup
since 2004, currently sit 11
points adrift of league leaders
Arsenal, and the Scot may view
this competition as a chance to
snaffle some silverware in his
first season in charge.
Moyes’ side made it to the sixth
round of last year’s competition,
losing 1-0 to Chelsea in a replay
after the sides had drawn 2-2
in the initial encounter.
“We’re trying to win all the
competitions,” he said in the
build-up to the clash. “As far as
I am concerned, we’ll do
everything we possibly can to
try to get through.
“The cup is important to me, it
always has been. I’m sure it’s
important to every club. The
longer you stay in the
competition the more
important it becomes.
“If you’re a club like Manchester
United you want to be involved
in all the trophy-winning
opportunities, and to not win
the FA Cup for 10 years is
something that’s a bit of a
surprise.”
For Swansea, this fixture marks
the midway point of a
Manchester triple header.
The men from Wales suffered a
3-2 home defeat to Manchester
City on Wednesday, and face
United for a second time in the
Premier League next weekend.
They are currently on a run of
seven matches without a win in
all competitions, and two
fixtures against United followed
by the visit of Tottenham will
not help their cause.
Swansea lost at this stage to
Arsenal last year after a replay
though their focus that time
around was on their ultimately
successful League Cup
campaign.
United will be forced to do
without Ashley Young
(shoulder), while Phil Jones
(knee), Rafael (groin), Marouane
Fellaini (wrist) and Nani
(hamstring) remain sidelined.
Robin van Persie (groin and
thigh) has returned to training
but is unlikely to feature.
Pablo Hernandez suffered
hamstring injury in Swansea’s
defeat to Manchester City,
joining Michu (ankle), Michel
Vorm (knee) and Nathan Dyer
(ankle) in being ruled out of the
clash.

FA CUP THIRD ROUND
Venue: Old Trafford Date: Sunday, 5 January Kick-off: 16:30 GMT


Manchester United will be without strikers Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie for Sunday's FA Cup third-round tie with Swansea.

Rooney (groin) and Van Persie (thigh) are both injured, as is
winger Ashley Young (shoulder). Swansea winger Pablo Hernandez is likely to miss out after suffering a hamstring injury. Leon Britton is a doubt though illness and Michu, Michel Vorm and Nathan Dyer are all definitely out.
Rooney missed the trip to Norwich on 28 December with a
groin problem but returned for the New Year's Day loss to
Tottenham. However on Friday he was pictured leaving a
private hospital in Manchester.
"He has got a groin injury and won't be available on
Sunday," Red Devils manager David Moyes said. "He's got
a chance [of facing Sunderland on Tuesday]."

Provisional Manchester United squad:
De Gea, Lindegaard,
Johnstone, Rafael, Smalling, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra, Vidic,
Buttner, Fabio, Valencia, Nani, Carrick, Fletcher, Cleverley,
Giggs, Anderson, Zaha, Januzaj, Rooney, Welbeck, Kagawa,
Hernandez.

Provisional Swansea squad:
Amat, Taylor, Flores, Williams,
Britton, Shelvey, Bony, Cornell, Lamah, Routledge, Tiendalli,
De Guzman, Rangel, Canas, Pozuelo, Tremmel, Vazquez,
Richards, Davies, Zabret.

Stats
United have won the Cup 11 times, more than any other
team.
The furthest Swansea have ever been in the FA Cup is the
semi-final stage. They reached the last four in 1926 and
1964.
This is the first time Manchester United have played
Swansea in the FA Cup. Earlier this season United won 4-1
at Swansea in David Moyes's first Premier League match in
charge of United.
