Manchester United host Swansea City for the second week running at Old Trafford tomorrow evening and the Red Devils will be desperate to secure all three points. 

David Moyes has seen his side beaten in all three of their games in 2014 so far this season and the United manager will be hoping to see his side bounce back at the Theatre of Dreams. 

Manchester United will be targeting revenge over the Swans after Michael Laudrup's side dumped the Red Devils out of the FA Cup last weekend. 

Ahead of tomorrow's clash, fans of United will be hoping to see Wayne Rooney return to the side after missing the last two fixtures with injury. 

Rooney has been in fine form this season for the Red Devils and his return could act as a major boost to the side. 

With Rooney in attack, David Moyes could opt for Japanese playmaker Shinji Kagawa in his favoured position, just off the striker. Kagawa has had limited opportunity in the position, but could be given his chance at Old Trafford tomorrow. 

With Kagawa playing behind Rooney, David Moyes could play English international Danny Welbeck from the left and youngster Adnan Januzaj on the right hand side which would see Ecuadorian ace Antonio Valencia drop to the bench. 

In midfield, the Manchester United boss could partner Michael Carrick alongside Darren Fletcher giving Tom Cleverley a rest. 

Picking the back four should be fairly simple for Moyes with Rafael, Vidic and Evra all keeping their place from midweek. 

However Phil Jones, who looks set for a return, could replace the doubtful Jonny Evans at centre-back.

Finally David de Gea will keep his place between the sticks as David Moyes' side go in search of a vital win at the Theatre of Dreams. 

Manchester United predicted XI: De Gea, Rafael, Vidic, Jones, Evra, Januzaj, Carrick, Fletcher, Kagawa, Welbeck, Rooney
