Watch Live: Manchester United vs. Swansea (Lineups and Discuss)

Jan 11, 2014, 11:47 AM EST

Swansea celebrate their late winner of United to knock them out of the FA Cup, as Shinji Kagawa looks on dismayed. AP

Swansea travel to Old Trafford for the second time in a week, hoping to replicate their 2-1 FA Cup win over Manchester United (watch live on NBC at 12:30 p.m. ET, or live online via NBC Sports Live Extra).

The Swans grabbed a last minute winner against United last week, when Wilfried Bony‘s header piled even more woes upon David Moyes. It was a welcome win for Swansea, however, with the side sitting in 13th, a mere four points above the relegation zone. Now, of course, Swansea need to do the same in the league, despite being winnless in their last six Premier League outings.

It’s United that’s suffering more, however, as is evidenced by their seventh placed position, and the fact that they’re 12 points off Chelsea in first. In the past week they’ve been dumped out of the FA Cup by Swansea and, two days later, lost the first leg of the Capital One Cup semi-finals to Sunderland. That’s on top of their latest Premier League match, in which they fell 2-1 to Tottenham at home.

Michael Landrup has made four changes to the side that beat United 2-1, putting on Angel Rangel, Ashley Williams, Ben Davies and Jose Canas for Dwight Tiendalli, Chico, Neil Taylor and Jonathan de Guzman.
