Ahead of the Premier League meeting between Swansea and Manchester United at the Liberty Stadium this weekend, we caught up with a couple of fans for their take on the match...

Swansea fan Rhys McPartland

After an unbeaten start to the new season, we couldn't be better prepared going into Sunday's match with Manchester United.

Top-quality performances against Chelsea and against Newcastle United ensured we have made a great early impression and Garry Monk will be looking to make a big statement by handing opposite number Louis van Gaal his first defeat of the season.

We have home advantage and recent history is on our side having done the league double over them last season. Throw into the mix that we boast some of the most in-form players in the league at the moment in Bafetimbi Gomis, Andre Ayew and Jefferson Montero and we have every reason to be confident of taking another three points. United haven't been good enough so I think we could just sneak this one and keep our good run against them going.

Score prediction: Swansea City 2-1 Manchester United.

After a steady but wholly unspectacular start to the Premier League season, it's vital that we lay down a marker with a big performance sooner rather than later. It will certainly be tough against Swansea - a talented side who beat us home and away last season - but that just makes it all the more important.

Marouane Fellaini's return from a domestic suspension is a big bonus for United. Not only is the Belgian a tremendous threat himself, his very presence worries opponents and helps open the space in which Juan Mata, Memphis and others can flourish and hurt teams.

Another strong defensive performance is also key. Matteo Darmian must continue his impressive start to the season in order to nullify Jefferson Montero, while the in-form Chris Smalling has to win his individual battle with Bafetimbi Gomis.

It won't be easy, but United have it in them to win 2-0.
