Match Preview

We will fight to the end - Hernandez Javier Hernandez insists Manchester United will fight to the bitter end before relinquishing their Barclays Premier League title. United head into Sunday's encounter with Swansea at Old Trafford knowing they are no longer in charge of their own destiny. Unless they win their final two games by improbably high scores, the Old Trafford outfit will not be able to catch leaders Manchester City if they overcome their last couple of opponents, Newcastle and QPR. However, Newcastle represent an awkward assignment for Roberto Mancini's men and even relegation-threatened QPR are likely to have plenty of incentive to win at the Etihad Stadium on May 13. So Hernandez does not see any reason why the Red Devils should give up just yet. "We will keep fighting because there are two games left," he said. "The possibility remains for us to win the title. "Some people say the chance is very low. Some say they are high. But we will keep fighting until the end." Win or lose, it seems Sir Alex Ferguson is already making plans for the future. Japanese midfielder Shinji Kagawa has long been touted as a potential summer arrival from German champions Borussia Dortmund. United have steadfastly refused to comment on any interest in the midfielder. However, in an interview with a Japanese TV station, Kagawa has stated his intention to join the Red Devils. "May 12 will be my last game for Dortmund and then I will start a new chapter in Manchester United," Kagawa told TV Osaka. Again, United have opted not to respond about the 23-year-old, who has scored an impressive 28 goals in 69 appearances in his two years with Dortmund, although that may be more to do with club policy, given the deal cannot go through until after the season is over anyway. First, they have the rather more pressing task of overcoming Swansea, who are making their first visit to Old Trafford since 1983. And, in order to do that, they must get hold of the ball. It seems a fairly straightforward notion. Against Swansea, it is anything but. Even against the top flight's biggest sides, Swansea have tended to enjoy a monopoly on possession. On Sunday, Phil Jones realises United cannot afford to be dictated to. "Swansea do tend to have the majority of possession against teams but hopefully we can put that right," said the England defender. "It is important in any game that we keep the ball and play at our tempo, the way we like to play. "I am sure we will be able to do that." Jonny Evans (knock) and Danny Welbeck (ankle) have both been ruled out due to injury, but back-up goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard (ankle) is available for the first time since January. Leon Britton (knee) is a doubt for Swansea but Angel Rangel and Alan Tate are set to return from respective hamstring and calf injuries. Swans boss Brendan Rodgers has warned United they face a "dangerous" opponent at Old Trafford as his side relish the chance to help decide the destiny of the Premier League title. Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has raised Rodgers' ire ahead of Sunday's clash by saying that Swansea will be an "easy" game for United as he looks to try and ease the pressure his squad are under as they chase a first title since 1968. Rodgers insists the Italian's mind games have not affected Swansea's preparations for the trip to Old Trafford, but says the freedom of having secured their Premier League status means they can cause United plenty of problems. "It shows the magnitude of what our players have put in that with these last couple of games against the most decorated clubs in the history of English football we can go and play with a freedom," he said. "If you look at Wolves, who were 3-0 and 4-1 down against us last week and came back to draw, they had a freedom. You run and play with nothing to lose. "That's why it's not an easy game, but a dangerous game for Manchester United. "We have freedom. We play with freedom anyway but we have been cut loose from things that sometimes can hold you back and we can go and play."
