And so it begins

Finally! Let the games begin!

United kick off the season at Swansea in DM's first league game as manager of one of the greatest clubs in the world. It promises to be a tough match, but I am pretty sure they will start on the right foot.

Rafael, Hernandez, Nani and Young are all expected to be sidelined for the match. With the latter two out of business for the moment, we can expect exciting new kid on the block Zaha to step up for his first EPL match.

The biggest question, however, will be whether Rooney starts the match, having played almost 70 minutes in the England-Scotland friendly at Wembley. Somehow, though, I don't think he will. My guess is Welbeck will be given the task of partnering RVP up front, but Rooney will be brought in later in the match.

My guess for the starting line-up: De Gea, Vidic, Ferdinand, Evra, Smalling, Carrick, Cleverley, Kagawa, Zaha/Valencia, RVP and Welbeck.

And the crystal ball says: Swansea 1-3 Man United
