Football Insider looks ahead to the final Premier League clash of the weekend as we profile the key players and give you the facts, stats, line-ups and all-round lowdown in our Swansea v Manchester United preview.

KICK-OFF TIME: Sunday, 4pm

TV: Live on Sky Sports 1

IT’S A BIG GAME FOR…

Juan Mata. Wide boy or playmaker? Under Louis van Gaal the Spaniard is used almost exclusively on the right flank and the sense remains that the Dutchman is not getting the best out of the January 2014 signing. Nonetheless, the manager rates and trusts him. Mata has started all five of United’s matches this season, completing all three Premier League clashes to date. He is doing a decent job without quite lighting up the league in the way he used to do so consistently at Chelsea, where he was given licence to roam. Such luxury has rarely been afforded him at Old Trafford.

PLAYER TO WATCH…

Jefferson Montero. Fast becoming one of the most familiar sights in the Premier League is this pacy, tricky winger tearing his opposing full-back to ribbons. Branislav Ivanovic had one of his most uncomfortable matches against the excellent Ecuadorian on the opening day of the season and teams are starting to double up on Montero to prevent him reaching the byline and delivering a stream of inviting crosses to Bafetimbi Gomis, who is a major aerial threat.

REMEMBER WHEN…

A younger, more dynamic Rooney with a full head of (real) hair scored one of his finest United goals with this howitzer of a volley against Newcastle in 2005. Watch the perfect arc of this shot:
