Man Utd Tickets: United to face Swansea, Benfica & Newcastle in November

After their Manchester derby defeat put them five points behind archrivals City in the Premier League table, Manchester United responded with back-to-back league wins over Everton and Sunderland and four consecutive wins in all competitions prior to the current international break.

United must keep that positive momentum going coming out of the international break. Maximum points from league fixtures against Swansea and Newcastle are a must to at least keep pace with City, and there’s also a big home Champions League tie against Benfica that could decide top spot in Group C.


Manchester United v SL Benfica

Advancing to the knockout rounds in the Champions League is always a must for United, but winning the group is also considered a top priority, given that it often means a favorable round of 16 matchup.

United have finished top of their Champions League group each of the last five seasons, and they’re in a good position to make it six in a row. United and Benfica are currently level at the top of the group with eight points, with Basel third on five points. If United take all three points against Benfica on 22 November and Basel fail to win in Romania against bottom side Otelul Galati, United will have top spot in Group C wrapped up ahead of next month’s group finale away to Basel.

When these two sides met in September at the Estadio da Luz, the end result was a 1-1 draw, with a Ryan Giggs stunner and a fine performance by Anders Lindegaard securing a point. In that clash, United didn’t field their strongest possible side, but with so much on the line when they face off at Old Trafford, expect Fergie to field an extremely strong side and more than likely go with two up front from the outset after starting Wayne Rooney as the lone striker in the tie in Lisbon.

Manchester United tickets are always in high demand, but European nights are a special occasion, especially when there’s as much to play for as there will be when United take on Benfica. Fortunately, you can find tickets for this important match at TicketBis from £55.90.

Swansea City v Manchester United

Coming out of the international break, United have a tricky trip to Wales to take on promoted side Swansea City on the 19th.

Swansea City struggled out of the gate, losing two and drawing two in their first four matches. But they’ve gone a respectable 3-2-2 since and have moved into the top half of the table. The Swans have yet to be beaten at home, going 3-2-0 in five home matches, and they held Liverpool to a goalless draw at Anfield in their last match before the break.

Along with being tough at home, Swansea have picked up valuable experience against several of the top sides in the Premier League, as they’ve already played at City, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Liverpool. Sure, they have only the one point against Liverpool to show for it, but they held City for almost an hour and also went down only 1-0 at the Emirates. So, they’ll be ready for what the reigning champions will throw at them, which means United will have to put in a quality performance to leave the Liberty Stadium victorious.

Manchester United v Newcastle United

Coming into the season, this might have been seen as three guaranteed points for United, and a United win is expected when Newcastle go to Old Trafford on the 26th. However, given the hot start the Magpies have had this season, it might be harder than expected. Newcastle are unbeaten in their first 11 league matches and sit a surprising third in the Premier League table, only one point behind United. They haven’t had too many stiff tests as of yet, but that doesn’t take the shine off of what they’ve accomplished to date.

Newcastle might be hoping to catch United in letdown mode after the Champions League tie with Benfica, but United will certainly have to taken Alan Pardew’s side very seriously, especially if they are able to, at the very least, make City sweat when they visit the Etihad Stadium the week before they face United.

    @Redslevin means someone paid money for the thread,admin is short for administration,someone involved in running the blog wrote the article

  2. Zibbie says:

    As always Man Utd fighting on all fronts!!!

  3. Giggs12Gerrard0 says:

    Sherpertonni word has it his agent is doing the same as that fat cunt agent did to Rooney. Not all but most agents are parasites.

  4. Fred says:

    This “admin” guy is no Ahmed Bilal, I’ll tell you that much.

  5. Zibbie says:

    Opinions, we all have them. The MF is a wonderful debate. I feel more competition will happen then cuts will be made. Will Pogba sign another contract, or a pre-contract with another team in Jan.? How will Tunni and Ravel develop? So inter development with a purchase or 2. Then late next summer or in the following window someone will go. SAF bid for Nasri and was after other MF’S that did not work out. SAF will not pay 28 million for a 20 million player then give him 150K per week instead of 110K.
    I have no fucking idea when FFP rules start, and if they will work. If they hold back unlimited spending Man Utd looks pretty going forward with 110,000,000.00 turn over and selling the official deodorant in Thailand for 5 million a year. .

  6. Fred says:

    I partly agree with Giggs12Gerrard0 – not all agents are parasites, just the ones with pulses.

  7. Zibbie says:

    I love Man Utd and when you say I would play for them for less we would. So easy to say. When your not from the UK and some one offers you millions more to play for them? Until you have to make the call you never know how you would act. Most think in emergency’s they would act like men, until it happens and they run and scream like women. Most here are happy Shark face moved on. I do want more MF competition.

  8. Fred says:

    So true Zibbie. It’s not limited to foreigners though. These days, even players from the north-west of England are brazen enough to disrespect our great club in the name of getting more money elsewhere! ;)

  9. sheppertonni says:

    @giggs12gerrard0 – Really? thats shit but you’d think these footballers would only have to look at the players who have left to see it’s only down hill ( apart from pique) but i get guess the yankee dollar is to much for them to resist.hope he stays though. cant the club ban these agents from the club somehow.

  10. Fred says:

    The yankee dollar? :lol: Where’s Pogba going? New York Red Bulls?

  11. Giggs12Gerrard0 says:

    @Fred correct mate I just left in not all in case there was decent one out there.

    @Sherpertonni I know mate its wank and he is being poorly advised and as zibbie says above can sign a pre contract for another team in Jan.

    He needs to make an impact and wait his time before he becomes a big time Charlie.

  12. CedarsDevil says:

    wayne

    Bugger off in that case! lol

  13. nm says:

    IF these Pogba rumours are true, which I suspect they aren’t , then I agree with Giggs12. Bigtime Charlie.

  14. Giggs12Gerrard0 says:

    @king Eric

    Mate I hope they are not true also he has so much to give and prove. Wes tried a similar contract negotiations and learnt the boss doesn’t cave ( unless your name is Keano or Rooney). Pogba needs to get his deal signed and prove on the pitch his real worth

  15. kaihnsn says:

    I’m expects United to win all remaining 8 games after City defeat. I believe United can do it. Afterall only City have better squad if not better than United. Who want to bet United will top City when we complete the first round end of December? I think Mancini will lost the plot when December coming.

    watch out saturday for dyer, sinclair, routledge, graham or lita.. comon the swans.. good luck u mancs

  17. Moses says:

    Phil from Prestwich appreciation society says that we have tough games coming up and we need to win the lot or else it is City for the title.

    We all hate Leeds!

  18. CedarsDevil says:

    ‘We all hate Leeds’ hahaha Funny that… How can you hate your own club? Guess with a club like Leeds its understandable

    Piss off you sheep shagging fake cunt

  19. CedarsDevil says:

    Sussed and flushed down the shit drain you Munich chanting hateful fuck…… Go find yourself a nice furry one

  20. nm says:

    Ha. Phil from Prestwich!! THE most negative man I have ever heard. Only comes on the phone in after a loss.

  21. nm says:

    Cedars – Moses cant be a Leeds fan mate, unless he pays for MUTV. Otherwise he would never have heard of Phil from Prestwich.

  22. CedarsDevil says:

    King Eric

    Trust me he is, I do not know how to dig out old posts, as for the MUTV thing, probably picked it at someone’s house

  23. CedarsDevil says:

    Said so himself once, also wished the boss would just die already…..Just like that other fuck who said the same thing (Cannot remember his nick, probably one and the same)

  24. Red Devil says:

    Cedars

    ‘That other fuck’ would be Bill Bob or as our resident stat man Costas would call him, Bill Knob….stupid idiot pretending to be a United fan and wishing death on our God Incarnate

  25. CedarsDevil says:

    Red Devil

    Hi buddy, there was also another poster, weird sort of nick that wished the same as well…. I am sure some may remember him, I cannot!

  26. CedarsDevil says:

    Think that other sick fuck used the name of Yipyap or Yipstam….. Not accurate but sounds like that…

  27. Red Devil says:

    Yeah there was another guy by the name of Yip Yap Stam but I dont remember him slagging of Sir Alex tbh

  28. Red Devil says:

    Anyways…lets just forget the diseased minds, whoever they are — its their hate which makes us stronger

  29. Red Devil says:

    Anyways…lets just forget the diseased minds, whoever they are — its their hate which makes us stronger

  30. CedarsDevil says:

    Red Devil

    I am sure he did, my health may not be in check but my memory is…. wishing it would happen in the dug out were some of the ugly words used….. Like you say though my friend, their hate will only make us stronger….. Fuck em

  31. King Eric says:

    Aah. You will be right then Cedars. Didnt realise he has posted shite like that. Yeah that other cunt was YipYap who acted the United fan then went on to say he hoped Fergie dies on the touchline. Some banter is fine but that cunt was way beyond the pale. Talking of cunts aint seen Captaincunt9 or RedMegleeker for a while.

  32. CedarsDevil says:

    King Eric

    This place is much much better off without those Leeds supporting sick fucks who just love to sing hate against the dead and wish it for those alive.

    Fucking scum of the earth they are

  33. redbilly says:

    Shitty rivals?. not until they consistently win something of value like the scouse of past. hate them yes but thats due to genuine historical rivalry based in no small part ot the considerable success the scouse once had. Wastelands are mere wealthy pretenders. Dont like Tevez but a part of me thinks shitty deserve his contempt. Would the bess allow it, I think not.

  34. redbilly says:

    apologies for the typos
