Manchester United hosts Swansea City at Old Trafford on Saturday as Week 2 of the 2017-18 Premier League season gets underway.

United are aiming to maintain their 100% start after their comprehensive victory over the Hammers and Mourinho is backing the eleven that started last weekend to do the job.

The obvious choice for Martial's place in the starting XI is Marcus Rashford, who didn't show as much quality in week two as he did in week one.

Such has been the emphatic nature of their victories, many pundits have already stated that Jose Mourinho's men should be viewed as favourites for the Premier League title with Thierry Henry even stating that the Red Devils now remind him of Arsenal's Invincibles. Veteran midfielder Leon Britton faces a late fitness test.

The Portuguese boss said injured defenders Luke Shaw and Ashley Young were close to returning and would play for the club's under-23 team on Monday.

Kick of is at 12:30 in the United Kingdom, 07:30 on the east coast of the U.S., and 04:30 over on the west.

Matic started with a first-class game and will be a huge player if he stays on the park and in the type of form we know he can deliver. Those in the States can catch the action in English on NBCSN, and in Spanish on Universo. I'm ready to go without the fourth player. It doesn't mean you are going to win it - I think it is the stamp that you have when you are champion, it is that the next season you are the favourite.

"I am happy with the squad we have".

In the last five matches between these teams, Swansea won twice, as well as Manchester United, and once the teams played in a draw.

Three goals were scored in the space of three minutes and 42 seconds as Man United capitalized on the space afforded them by the equalizer-seeking Swans.

Conte isn't fooled by Chelsea's success last season because he believes they rode their luck with virtually no injuries to key players.

However, the Frenchman responded by impressing on United's pre-season tour of the United States and scored when appearing from the bench in Sunday's 4-0 Premier League win over West Ham United.

Hence it is predicted that in today's match Manchester United will win against Swansea City.
