3 Burning Questions The Manchester United Fans Will Ask Ahead Of Their Match Against Swansea City

After yet another defeat away to Fenerbahce, the ‘Get Out Mourinho’ chants are growing louder in the United stands. Mourinho’s failure to win with such a star-studded team has caused enough frustration among the United fans and with their Europa League qualification looking a distant dream now, Premier League remains the only main silverware they could target now.

To make things worse, United are traveling to Swansea City for their next fixture, which has been an extremely difficult place for the Red Devils to win at. Swansea have won 3 of their last 4 Premier League matches against United at home.

United have lost their last 2 successive Premier League visits there and something says Mourinho’s sacking could possibly happen in January if United  lose this match.

It seems like every Manchester United fan can see through the team’s flaws except Mourinho, who is repeating the same mistakes game after game. Here are the 3 burning questions United fans will be asking Mourinho before the Sunday’s game.

Why always Ibrahimović?

We know he is tall, we know he looks forward to showing his kung fu skills whenever he can, we know he likes attention on social media and the petty jokes people make considering the Swedish to be something above God, but he has been annoyingly ineffective this season so far and does not deserve to play in the first team.

His heroics in Ligue 1 now make the French league in the previous seasons look like a Sunday league football. The towering Swede has been pretty easy to defend this season with almost every team keeping him in the pocket.

However, Mourinho seems to have a special liking towards him and seems to end up choosing him no matter what is the dilemma. The fans surely want him to be benched.

What about Bastian?

He may be lacking match fitness as Mourinho and his staff forced him to take a break just before the season started, but he could play a better ball than Fellaini even if he is drunk. With a player like Bastian Schweinsteiger training with the squad, only an egotistic maniac like Jose Mourinho will not play him.

However, now with Herrera out with a red card and Schneiderlin in a fierce competition with Fellaini to outplay each other in being the worst midfielder, the experienced German could really bring some balance in the pivot against Swansea.

Fenerbahce SK v Manchester United FC - UEFA Europa League

Will the skipper get a game?

There was a reason Ferguson stuck to the England international even when he lost his sharpness upfront. It was because of his understanding of the game. Rooney has scored twice and assisted twice in their last five Premier League games against Swansea. His stunner against Fenerbahce is another reminder what United miss when Mourinho brings on Rooney only after the 70th minute.

Mourinho has to find a setup to accommodate Mata and Rooney together up front with whoever he chooses to aid them.
