What does the web say? "Without the distraction of the Europa League, Swansea should be good enough to keep themselves out of relegation trouble." Luke Edwards, Daily Telegraph
Memorable meeting: Our 2-1 win over the Swans in May 2013 saw a packed Old Trafford bid a fond farewell to Sir Alex Ferguson, in charge of the Reds at home for the last time after an astonishing, trophy-laden 26-and-a-half years at the club.
Tell me something I don’t know: Swansea beat Sliema Wanderers of Malta 17-0 over the course of two legs of a European Cup Winners' Cup tie in 1982, including a 12-0 thrashing at Vetch Field.

Memorable meeting: United's second-half comeback at White Hart Lane on 29 September 2001 was a stunner, overturning a three-goal deficit to win 5-3.
Tell me something I don’t know: Gate receipts for Spurs’ first-ever game at White Hart Lane, a friendly vs Notts County in 1899, were a whopping £115.
