Phil Thompson says United are better equipped than Manchester City

Jose Mourinho continues to struggles at Old Trafford as his side drew 1-1 with Swansea who are now in the Premier League relegation zone. City occupy the final Champions League qualification spot and could leapfrog third-placed Liverpool later today if they beat Middlesbrough.

There should be no repeats of that scenario this summer and with De Gea entering the final month of his United career, Schmeichel could be the replacement filling his shoes next season.

Left-back Shaw has been hit by a number of injuries during this campaign, with his manager constantly questioning his desire to play.

The United boss said it must have been a "big injury" to go off so early and Press Association Sport understands the left-back will see a specialist after scans on Monday showed ligament damage in his left foot. Then, another huge blow as Eric Bailly picked up a knock and had to be replaced by Darmian.

Gylfi Sigurdsson equalised late for Swansea with a magnificent free-kick that cancelled out a controversial first half penalty scored by Wayne Rooney.

Manchester United slumped to their 10th home league draw of the season against the Swans but they did extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 25 matches, a new club record.

United in the infamous 2013/14 season, won only nine home league games.

"The Europa League final is on the Wednesday and we play against Crystal Palace on the Sunday.so we would be playing the final with disastrous consequences", the Portuguese added.

Manchester United lead Manchester City in the race to sign former City academy player, Kasper Schmeichel, according to Sky Sports. Smalling, Rojo, Shaw, Jones, Bailly, Ibrahimovic and Fosu-Mensah are all expected to be out.

The Swede defied critics in his first season in the Premier League.

Now just one point off fourth place in the Premier League, United have already won the League Cup and will be gunning for the Europa League final to secure Champions League football next term.
