Can Manchester United continue their recent run of results when they face Swansea? Opta gives their verdict.

"Only Chelsea (18.6%) have scored with a higher proportion of their chances than Man Utd (18.0%)."

Over 2.5 goals is 11/102.08.

The Swans have scored just nine goals in their last 11 Premier League games and not more than once in a game in that run. Under 2.5 goals is 10/111.9.

After losing six and winning none of their first eight league visits to Swansea, Man Utd have won two and lost none of the last three. Manchester United are 1/12.02 to win.

The Red Devils had won five and lost none of the six Barclays Premier League games against Swansea before defeat on the opening day of this campaign at Old Trafford. Another Swansea win is priced at 100/304.3.

Robin van Persie has scored three goals in three Premier League appearances at Liberty Stadium. Van Persie is 7/52.4 to score.

Manchester United have conceded a league high 46% of their goals from set pieces. Gylfi Sigurdsson is 14/53.8 to score.

However, no team has scored fewer goals from set pieces than Swansea (4) and no team has netted a lower proportion via this route (14%). United are 9/52.78 to keep a clean sheet.

The Red Devils have lost just one of their last 15 Premier League matches (W10 D4 L1). In that 15 game run, they have picked up more points than any other team in the top flight. Manchester United are 11/53.2 to win half-time/full-time.

Swansea have won just one of their last seven Premier League games (W1 D3 L3). The draw is 13/53.6.

Wayne Rooney has yet to fire in a single shot on target in six games in 2015 in the Premier League. He is 9/43.25 to break his duck.

Only Chelsea (18.6%) have scored with a higher proportion of their chances than Man Utd (18.0%). Over 2.5 goals is 11/102.08.
