Swansea boss Paul Clement does not expect to meet a weakened Manchester United side tomorrow ahead of their Europa League date with Celta Vigo.

United boss Jose Mourinho has had to balance his squad during a rigorous schedule, with the Red Devils chasing a Champions League place on two fronts.

"I don't think they will sacrifice our game," head coach Clement said, when asked if he felt United would rest key players this weekend.

"When you play for a club of that size and with that expectancy in front of 75,000 supporters, they are expected to give their absolute best in every game.

"They have been playing Thursday and Sunday for many weeks now and they have an injury list which I'm sure the manager is not happy with.

"When you play a lot of games you are obviously more at risk of injuries.

"But we know it will not be easy. You always hope when you play a big team at their stadium that they have a slightly off-day and you have a chance."
