Swansea 0 Man Utd 1. All over at the Liberty Stadium and it is the visitors who take the spoils. Javier Hernandez's early effort settled the tie, but the Swans can hold their heads high after giving as good as they got.
Into the final seconds and Swansea make one last attempt to snatch a point. Allen is unable to provide the required final ball. United take the chance to run the ball forward and Nani bends a shot inches past the post.
Ferguson out making sure his players do not take their eye off the ball - literally. Victory for United will keep them within five points of Man City at the top of the table.
Fletcher, Park and Nani can't work a way through. In the end, United work the ball all the way back. De Gea then resists the urge to hammer clear.
Final minute of the 90 and this game is still evenly poised. Will we get any late drama? United are doing their best, with Valencia leading the charge. He finds Jones and his shot across goal cannons back off the post.
Rooney has two bites of the cherry, but can't wrap up the points. His first efffort his blocked by Williams, who throws his body on the line, while his second attempt is lofted onto the roof of the net.
Having ambled over to the ball, Nani's delivery almost sneaks in at the near post. He gets a second chance at picking out a team-mates, but his second corner is plucked out of the air by Vorm.
Carrick dropping deeper and deeper now to keep the United door bolted. As the visitors do push forward,Valencia is able to win a corner off Taylor. Nani in no rush to take the set-piece.
Rooney can;t catch up with a pass from Park. He fired the ball across the edge of the six-yard box, but no-one in a red shirt had gambled.
Dobbie goes straight down the middle with a hopeful pass. Graham is nowhere near it. Swansea try again and get nothing as Fabio outmuscles Dyer, leaving him on the deck.
Goal scorer Hernandez is replaced by Valencia. Rooney now up top by himself, with Park providing support from deep.
Fabio bombs forward from full-back. He brushes past Rangel, but sees the ball run away from him and behind.
United in no hurry to get the ball forward. Rooney and Fletcher pass up opportunities to have a go from distance. They are more concerned with running down the clock.
Taylor pushing on more and more now. On the other side, Dyer is unable to keep a Britton pass in play. Shame as he would have been one-on-one with Fabio.
Aimless from Carrick as he sprays a pass out of play. Nani had no chance of catching up with the ball. Rodgers out on the touchline barking instructions to his players.
Rangel forced to lump the ball forward. Graham is then pulled up for backing into Ferdinand. Swansea will be hoping that they can create one more clear-cut opportunity. United, meanwhile, will be looking for gaps to open up in the Swans rearguard.
Carrick takes a chance as he nods back to De Gea. For a moment it appears as though his header will drop short. Graham reads his intention, but the ball just about makes it through to De Gea.
Fletcher gives the ball away with his first touch. Sinclair drives forward. He sees Dyer cut across him and tries to pick him out, but his pass is misplaced.
Giggs is replaced by Fletcher. Plenty of applause from the home support for a fellow Welshman as he leaves the field.
United forced backwards. Swansea working hard to close red shirts down as soon as possible. Rodgers can't fault the effort of his side today.
United can't keep the ball at the moment. They are planning another change. Fletcher is getting stripped off. Another switch that has the preservation of this narrow lead in mind.
Gower curls the ball towards the back post. A collection of bodies rise, and a red shirt clears. Sinclair is back on the ball and bursts past Jones. United are forced to put in two heroic blocks to deny Graham and Williams as the ball is cut back.
Fabio with a rash challenge on Gower. He didn't need to dive in. Swansea with a free-kick on the right of the box. Great chance to whip over a flat delivery.
United with nine men behind the ball now. Ferguson's men are aware that they only hold a slender lead and they have offered little as an attacking threat in the second half.
Hernandez keeping himself onside and has the Swansea defence on their toes at all times. They lose sight of Rooney and he tries his luck from distance. A dipping volley is spilled by Vorm, but he gathers at the second attempt.
Great touch from Hernandez to pull a De Gea clearance out of the air, but he can't keep the ball. Swansea surge forward, but Graham can't force his way past two United defenders.
Gower's delivery is poor and is headed clear by Giggs at the near post. The ball is soon returned to Gower and his second delivery forces Vidic into a last-ditch clearance. Swansea pushing for a leveller.
Williams can run the ball forward from the back. He finds Sinclair, who beats Nani and hangs up a dangerous cross. Fabio wins an aerial battle with Dyer, before United hack behind.
Park lets the ball run under his foot, with Rangel lurking behind him, but recovers in time to clear. Rangel is then flagged offside as Gower tries to send him towards the corner flag.
Dyer has his pocket picked by Giggs. He goes long towards Rooney and Hernandez, but his hopeful ball forward is easily dealt with by the Swansea backline.
Carrick finds Rooney in space. He spins and sets off towards goal. From 25 yards he pulls the trigger, but his shot lacks power and never troubles Vorm.
Nani goes go to ground rather tamelyand gets nothing. Rooney picks up possession and finds Park. His cross to the far post is nodded clear by Monk. Fabio then bundles into the back of Dyer, letting the Swans off the hook.
The home support are doing their bit to drag an extra 10 per cent out of the Swansea players. It is, however, United who are on the attack at the moment, with Nani drifting down their right.
Swansea still looking to keep the ball on the deck. They work it well out to Taylor down their left. He fires over a low cross. De Gea has to be brave to dive at the feet of Graham. He gets a knock but soon bounces back up.
Nani forced wide by Taylor and he can't wrap his foot around the ball enough to send over a cross. His delivery drops onto the roof of Vorm's net. Swansea take their turn to attack, but can't pick United's lock.
Rooney is okay to continue. He is made of strong stuff. Taylor races down the left and after a pass in behind Jones. He can't catch up with the ball and it runs away from him and behind.
Young has been sent out to warm-up. He will be a welcome return to the United side. On the field, Giggs floats a cros to the back post. Rooney challenges with Vorm and comes off second best. He stays down and will require treatment.
Gower trots over to the other side to take, but this time his delivery is glanced clear. Swansea have now had five corners, while United have yet to win one. A good sign for the hosts they they are creating opportunities.
Sinclair and Graham do well to force a corner. Another chance for the Swans to load the box. Up goes the volume. Gower again picks out Monk and Vidic has to nod his goal-bound effort behind for another corner.
De Gea's long clearance downfield is allowed to run all the way through to Vorm. Swansea look to move forward, with Graham sniffing around in the middle. He tries an over-head kick, but the ball isn't there.
Monk shoves Hernandez in the back. He disagrees with the decision. Rooney and Giggs fail to combine in the middle of the park. The second half id yet to get going.
Swansea continue to probe, with United sitting back. The Red Devils take the opportunity to catch their breathe and let the Swans have the ball in front of them.
Carrick apepars to nudge Britton in the back, but nothing given. Swansea soon back on the ball and looking to work a yard. Sinclair finds room and goes for goal. His shot is blocked.
Allen nutmegs Jones and gets to the dead-ball line. He cuts the ball back, but can only find a red shirt. Movement on the United bench, with Fabio getting ready.
United counter. Rooney makes inroads down the right. One look up and he sends a perfect pass into Hernandez, who is all alone bursting into the box. His first touch is heavy and the ball runs away from him.
Dyer moves inside and moves the ball on to Allen. He in turn feeds Sinclair. From a tight angle he forces De Gea to push the ball behind. Gower's delivery finds Monk, but he gets his header all wrong.
All very tight in the middle of the park at the moment. United are able to find some space down their left with Park. The ball is then worked to Rooney and his first-time pass finds Hernandez off side.
Dyer with a clever touch towards Gower. He is clattered by Evra and the French full-back is booked for a late challenge.
Scrappy start to the half as the ball spends a lot of time in the air. A lot of spectators still to take to their seats for the second half. Someone needs to tell them we are back on!
United are back with us and we are almost ready for the off once again. Just need Swansea! Perhaps this is tactical?
Sanjay says: "This is live from Singapore, a former British colony where the Premiership is still religiously followed. United's away record has been the pits, so I don't feel particularly confident. One more goal should secure it for United, but knowing our luck, it probably isn't going to happen anytime soon. Let's hope the changes Fergie rings aren't too defensive, because attack is the strongest defence."
Cameron Bates says: "I think that United will take another goal to take away 3 points! Come on United!"
Jerome says: "For all possession and control cannot believe with Rooney, Nani, Giggs, Park, Hernandez severe lack of quality in final 3rd."

How will the second half play out? Get your thoughts in to Chris.Burton@bskyb.com and @SkySportsChrisB.
Swansea 0 Man Utd 1. The visitors hold a slender lead at the interval. Rangel's mistake allowed Hernandez to break the deadlock. Sinclair should have levelled, but there is still all to play for.
Sinclair cuts inside past Jones. His cross with his weaker right foot lacks height. United counter at pace, with Hernandez in acres of space. He looks up and tries to pick out Rooney, but over hits his square pass. Good chance goes begging.
Again Swansea resist the urge to send a free-kick into the box. They end up being forced backwards. They need to take a few chances and chance their arm. As I say that, Evra makes a meal of a clearance and almost gifts them a sight of goal.
Rodgers returns to his bench. He will be preparing his half-time speech. His side have not done much wrong, but one moment of madness has them behind. On the field, Carrick fells Dyer.
Evra takes a blow to the face and stays down. United take their time in putting the ball out of play, but do eventually. Evra was caught by a stray boot from Dyer as he fell to the turf. Looks painful.
Sinclair tries to inject some life into the Swans. Dyer does likewise on the right wing, but both men are blocked off. Sinclair does make a yard everntually, but his shot is blocked by Vidic.
Nani chops down Britton. Swansea go backwards from the free-kick. They have lost their early energy. They must get it back, and quickly!
Nani dances his way inside, but ends up on his weaker left foot. He still decides to go for goal but only succeeds in firing a shot towards the corner flag. Not his best!
Giggs catches Gower with a sliding challenge. Mike Dean keeps his cards in his pocket. There was no intent there. Ferdinand and Graham then get in tangle, but Dean decides the aerial challenge was 50-50.
Gower delivers towards the near post, where the ball is glances clear. Gower tries again and picks out Monk. He climbs well at the back post and De Gea has to be alert to punch clear off the head of Graham.
Rooney tries his luck from distance, but his radar is well of. His shot from 30 yards never looks like troubling Vorm. Swansea break and force a corner.
Giggs is given responsibility of the set-piece. He gets the ball up and over the wall, but it won't come back down and sails harmlessly high and wide of Vorm's target.
Rooney in space and he sends the ball towards Hernandez. Monk comes through the back of the striker. Free-kick to United in a dangerous position - 25 yards from goal and almost dead centre.
Better from Monk as he beats Hernandez to the ball and diverts it back up field. Routledge teases Evra and hangs over a cross. De Gea steps off his line to pluck the ball out of the air unchallenged.
The home fans have gone a little quiet. They need something to get them going again. Swansea have struggled to make inroads in the last 5-10 minutes.
Neat passing from United. That is until Rooney tries to fire the ball wide to Nani. He gives the winger no chance and the ball runs behind for a goal kick.
Keep-ball again from the visitors. Nani then takes a tumble, but is waved back to his feet. Swansea fail to make the most of an opportunity to push forward with numbers.
Rooney moves through the gears and finds Hernandez. He tries to return the ball to his strike patrner, but finds there are too many white shirts in the way. Swansea attack with Sinclair.
Taylor cuts out a Giggs pass intended for Nani. Routledge is unable to get Swansea into United territory. The Red Devils look very comfortable now. They are playing the game at their pace.
United show it should be done as Williams has no options when trying to play the ball out from the back. In the end he goes back to Vorm, whose aimless punt forward returns possession to United.
United allowed to keep the ball far too easily. The home fans start to whistle as they go from side to side, but it is up to the Swans to go and win the ball back.
Rooney turns into space, but is quickly closed down. United move backwards, before Giggs breaks down the left and drills over a low cross. Gower hacks clear in the middle.
Routledge does well again to hang over a cross from wide on the right. His delivery drifts over the head of Graham, but is only half cleared. Taylor's eyes light up as he latches onto the loose ball, but he slices badly off target.
Swansea will struggle to create a better opportunity all game. All he had to do was direct the ball goalwards and the scores would be level. United are not the kind of side to offer too many opportunities like that.
Sinclair somehow spurns a golden opportunity. Routledge does really well to force the ball across the face of goal and the net is gaping for Sinclair, but he allows the ball to slip through his legs. Huge let off for United.
Giggs unable to divert a Nani pass back into the Portuguese winger's path. Swansea go central this time, but Routledge and Graham can't combine.
Swansea need to press higher up the pitch. United can knock the ball around at the back with virtually no challenge. They are therefore able to move forward to halfway and beyond with ease.
Jones races past Nani, but the ball doesn't come his way. It is instead sent towards the box, where Williams nods clear. United remain on the front foot and Evra forces a smart low save from Vorm with a drilled effort from 20 yards.
Swansea working so hard, the only fear is that they will run themselves into the ground and leave themselves vulnerable later in the game. For now, though, they have to keep pushing and try to find a route back into the game.
Giggs with a clever ball to Hernandez. He finds Nani, whose pass towards Rooney is cut out. Carrick tries again for United, but the Swans hold firm. Dyer picks Rooney's pocket and springs clear. He makes it all the way to the edge of the United box before he is halted in his tracks. Brilliant run and great effort.
Gower's delivery is whipped in dangerously, but De Gea does well to get a strong hand to the ball and see it away from danger. United look to calm things down in midfield.
Dyer skips past Giggs and Evra. Routledge lets him down with a stray pass, but Gower does really well to wina free-kick. The set-piece is taken quickly and Sinclair wins a corner off Jones.
Nani drifts inside of fhis flank. He is unable to link up with Hernandez. Swansea try to spring Sinclair clear down the left wing, but the final ball over the top of Jones is over-hit.
Rooney is still occupying that space in between the Swans midfield and their back four. The hosts need to keep a close eye on him. They are, however, more concerned with pushing forward at the moment!
Sinclair seeing plenty of the ball, which is good news for the Swans. He is, however, well off target with his latest effort, with a wild shot from 35 yards sliced high into the stands.
The Swans need to keep their head up. They have held their own so far. They know how strong they are on home soil. United, though, can now rest a little easier and pick and choose their moments to press.
GOAL MAN UTD - HERNANDEZ. One mistake from Rangel undoes all of Swansea's good work. He plays a sloppy pass and Giggs latches onto the loose ball. He then squares for Hernandez to bundle the ball home from close range.
Dyer loses the ball, but Graham works hard to win it back. Great movement from the Swans, giving the man on the ball options. In the end Dyer runs out of room and has to surrender possession. United know they are in a game.
Rangel leads Swansea forward. The ball is then switched to the left flank, with the hosts proving that they are capable of keeping possession for long periods against any opposition.
Swansea with nine men behind the ball at the moment. United will get nothing easy this evening. Giggs tries a more direct approach and picks out Nani, but his low cross is hacked clear by Williams.
Patient approach from United as they attempt to pick holes in the Swans. The hosts are looking to counter at every opportunity, though, and are not afraid to push men forward when they break.
Vorm comes and collects a Nani cross with ease. Solid first touch for the Swans keeper. Rooney sweeps the ball wide to Nani again, but his first touch is awful. United have to settle for a throw down by the corner flag.
Sinclair with a direct run straight at United. No fear from him. United drop deeper and deeper, but eventually put in a challenge. Hernandez is then chopped down by Monk and the Swans defender is lucky to escape an early caution. He was very late.
Taylor drifts inside, but his return ball towards Sinclair is not read by the Swans winger. On the opposite side, Rangel races forward and hangs over a cross. Vidic can only half clear, but Gower scuffs a volley well wide of the target. Bright start from the hosts.
Almost a sight of goals for Sinclair. Dyer surges down the right flank and floats a cross to the back post. He drops over the head of Jones, but he recovers in time to prevent Sinclair from getting in a shot.
Rooney dropping deep to pick up the ball. He is being allowed to drop off. United prepared to knock the ball around and put out some early feelers. Swansea happy to let them have it.
Swansea need to settle quickly and not let the sense of occasion get to them. Difficult when the crowd are making so much noise, but they need to be wary of getting too fired up. They need to stick to what they do best - playing good football.
The players are with us and we are almost ready for the off. Thanks to all of those who have got in touch so far, there will be further opportunities to air your views at half-time and at the final whistle. For now, though, let's turn our attention to the game.
Quick mention for John Bagust prior to kick-off. He says: "Swansea have not lost at home this season, but they are facing Utd today! I think 0-2 to Utd with Rooney and then Young from the bench!"
Paul Macey is tuning in from Holland and is backing a United win. He says: "All i can say is, great news that Rooney is playing up front!! He will be a great midfielder in the future, but not now!! Utd to win 3-0."
Jemma Bills thinks United will flex their muscles and run out convincing winners. She says: "I think Man U will go all guns blazing, we have sat back for too long I am going for 4-1 win to United."
Stefan Howarth has questioned Fergie's starting XI. He says: "Disappointed with the line-up instead of being cautious with players, put out our best 11 and prove a point Fergie!"
Dave M is backing is beloved Swans to do the business. He says: "All the pundits wrote off the Swans at the start of the season and have eaten their words so don't think it will be a walk in the park United fans. Tough game and head says it's United but heart will always say Swans!"
Just over 10 minutes until kick-off. Keep your thoughts coming in to Chris.Burton@bskyb.com and @SkySportsChrisB.
Chris Rivers is more concerned about how the man in the middle performs than the players on either side. He says: "I'm gonna save the need for either manager to get fined and say "uh oh" about the ref for them. Hard to guess a result with his track record in terms of controversial decisions."
Simon Gibbs in the US of A is looking forward to a memorable contest. He says: "Biggest game at Swansea for 10+ years. Huge upset as the Swans ride this wave of emotion to beat United 2-1, with a couple of controversial decisions along the way! Come on you Swans!"
Horace Horlicks is expecting United to ease to three points, saying: "Even though Man U have struggled recently, I expect them to give the Swans a good pasting. I'll go Swansea 0 Manchester United 3."
James Errington is backing the hosts to claim a notable scalp. He says: "I'm gonna go for Swansea 2-1 win. Graham and Sinclair with the goals and Nani sneaking one in later on."
Tristian Hill feels the Swans can hold their own. He says: "Let's go Swansea. I can see them giving United a tough game. Especially after their surprise with Liverpool 2 weeks ago."
Mike Travers is also going for an away win. He says: "United have a fair few injuries but I can see a difficult first half for the Red Devils, half time 0-0, then a perfect second half which ends 4-0 - 2 Hernandez, 1 Rooney, 1 Berba."
Ollie Perkins is first in with a view on today's game. He says: "I can't see the Swans beating Man United today, however I don't think it'll be an easy game for Man United. I am a United fan, I'd predict Swansea 1-3 Man United, Rooney to get 2!"
Man Utd team: De Gea, Jones, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra, Nani, Carrick, Giggs, Park, Rooney, Hernandez. Subs: Lindegaard, Fabio, Evans, Fletcher, Valencia, Young, Berbatov.

Feel free to offer your thoughts on today's game by contacting me direct at Chris.Burton@bskyb.com or @SkySportsChrisB.
Sir Alex Ferguson's side will not be taking the Swans lightly and are aware that they will need to be on top of their game if they are to avoid a potential banana skin.
United are the defending champions, though, and will be desperate to keep pace with arch-rivals Manchester City at the top of the table.
Brendan Rodgers' side have yet to taste defeat in front of their own supporters this season and will not want to see that record come to an end on Saturday.
The Swans may be relatively new to Premier League life, but they have settled quickly among the top flight elite - especially on home soil.
