Swansea held Southampton to a goalless draw last weekend, though they were very fortunate to do so, as they conceded a lot of scoring chances. The loss of Sigurdsson to Everton will be a blow, and they could struggle this season. Also, Llorente missed the 0-0 at Southampton last week as he continues his recovery from a broken arm. The Swans have now picked up just seven points in the 11 matches he’s failed to start and three of those were from the 5-4 win over Palace last season when he came off the bench to score twice. However, they’ve scored just twice in the six matches he’s missed since that game. On the other side, Manchester United got off to a great start by thumping West Ham 4-0. They looked very threatening going forward, creating a lot of chances, two of which were taken by their new number nine Romelu Lukaku. The Red Devils are W10-D1-L1 under Jose Mourinho when travelling to sides outside the top-eight, keeping a clean sheet in six of these victories. This time we go against unfavourable H2H stats.
