Ki Sung-Yueng believes Swansea can upset Manchester United again

The midfielder who scored at Old Trafford in their opening day win is hoping the side can put in a similar display during this weekend's clash in South Wales.

Swansea City midfielder Ki Sung-Yueng is hoping to repeat his heroics from the reverse fixture against Manchester United when they host Louis van Gaal's side at the Liberty Stadium this weekend. 

In an interview with the club's official website, Ki reflected on his goal that set the side on the way to victory at Old Trafford on the opening day of the season in August.

He said: “It was a special win for the team and a special goal for myself.

“It gave us confidence. People thought they would win the game, but the result ended differently.

“They are the biggest team in the league, but we are strong at home and can get the result.

“We’ve already experienced against teams like Arsenal that we can hurt big teams, especially with the support we have from our fans.

“It will be a challenge, but we won’t be afraid. We might suffer during the game because of their quality, but we know we will have chances to score and we must take them like we did at Old Trafford in August.”

The Swans have not been in the best of form of late but they will fancy their chances at home this weekend. They have provided stiff opposition for the top sides during the campaign, and managed to overcome Arsenal in front of their own supporters earlier in the campaign. 

Their opponent's away record in the Premier League is not as good as they would like it to be having won just the three out of their 10 games on their travels, something which one feels they need to improve on between now and the end of the season to be sure of Champions League qualification.

Swansea have only won one of their last seven and will be determined to rediscover the kind of form that led to them being in the mix for the European places in the earlier stages of the campaign in order to consolidate their position in the top half of the Premier League.
