Michael Laudrup says he hopes Swansea City can spoil Sir Alex Ferguson's leaving party at Old Trafford tomorrow.

Ferguson is stepping down after 26 years as Manchester United manager.

The clash with Swansea will be his last home game, and his side will be presented with the Premier League trophy afterwards.

"I hope they will be thinking more about winning the Premier League trophy, about Sir Alex Ferguson and about the crowd - and less about us and the ball", Laudrup said.

"Even if we don't get something out of this game we have a good possibility of finishing in the top half so we can be relaxed going there, with no pressure, and try to get something out from it."

Angel Rangel and Michel Vorm will miss Swansea's trip to face Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Right-back Rangel has a calf injury, while Vorm is still recovering from the concussion he suffered in the midweek win at Wigan.

But Michu could be set for a surprise return from a hamstring injury, just a week after manager Michael Laudrup had said he would miss the remainder of the season. Centre-half Chico Flores is also in contention.

Provisional squad: Bartley, Taylor, Flores, Tate, Williams, Britton, Michu, Hernandez, Dyer, Cornell, Routledge, Monk, Shechter, Moore, De Guzman, Tiendalli, Ki, Tremmel, Agustien, Davies.
