Swansea head coach Paul Clement is hoping to expose Manchester United’s defensive problems and win during their game with them in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.
United suffered a defeat against Huddersfield on Saturday which was due to the Terriers taking advantage of the hastily-assembled centre-back partnership of United.
Speaking ahead of their game against United, Paul Clement said: “We’ve looked at the Huddersfield game and I’ve spoken about that with the players. I’ve told them any team can be vulnerable at any moment, and we’ve got to make sure we do our bit right.
“They can’t make massive changes because they’ve got injury issues. But we know that whoever they put on the pitch they’re going to be good.”
“I’ve got the players I have, but the balance is slightly off,” said Clement.
“We’re potentially a little bit heavier in midfield than we would have liked and a little short at the back, particularly at left-back.
“If there is an issue with Martin (Olsson) there, who would be able to step in? You’d be asking a player who’s not a natural left-back, or you go down to the next level at your club.
“But I’ve just got to get on with it and maybe then we can address some of the balance issues in January.”
