If Bob Bradley didn’t know it before, he’s got a huge task on his hands to keep Swansea up this term. Defeat at the Britannia on Monday night means it’s now nine games without victory for Swansea, their worst run since their promotion to the Premier League in 2011. Winless at home this term, they’ll be hoping for a change in fortunes against a Man Utd side that suffered yet another disappointing defeat on Thursday night in Turkey.
In their last two home games against Stoke and Burnley, United dominated, amassing 62 shots on goal yet came away with just a point from each encounter. However, there is little excuse for the Special One in their latest away performances at Liverpool and Chelsea. Over the course of these four games they’ve netted just once as the goals have dried up for Ibrahimovic. The Swede has not scored in his last six league matches, his worst run since 2007, though it’s not through a lack of trying as he’s had 42 shots in this time.
Swansea have welcomed the likes of Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool to the Liberty Stadium already this season and they’ve been competitive without getting the results. In their last 16 home matches they’ve only trailed at the break once, whilst 10 of United’s 14 away trips to bottom-six sides since 2014/15 have been all-square at the break and so we’re backing the half time draw in what should be a cagey encounter.
