Swansea V Man Utd at Liberty Stadium : Match Preview

23 October 2017 02:37
Roque Mesa set for rare Swansea start against Manchester United

Roque Mesa will start Swansea's Carabao Cup fourth round tie at home to Manchester United on Tuesday night.

Mesa has started only three times since his B#11million summer move from Las Palmas, but Swansea head coach Paul Clement confirmed that the midfielder will line up against United.

Renato Sanches (thigh) is unavailable after joining Wilfried Bony (hamstring) and Kyle Bartley on the casualty list, while goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is set to be rested.

Manchester United Victor Lindelof will be hoping his display against Huddersfield does not cost him a starting place against the Swans.

Lindelof did not impress after coming on for the injured Phil Jones during Saturday's defeat and Jose Mourinho could choose to look at Axel Tuanzebe.

Other changes are likely for the last-16 match, with Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay, Matteo Darmian, Sergio Romero and Daley Blind all under consideration.
