Romero: Swans will give United a big fight

Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero is eager to see them bounce back from defeat against Huddersfield by knocking Swansea out of the EFL Cup.

The Red Devils suffered a surprise 2-1 reverse to the Terriers on Saturday – their first Premier League defeat of the season – and Romero believes Tuesday’s cup-tie is a good opportunity to put it behind them.

“Football is all about learning lessons,” he told MUTV. “You learn something from every game you play. You have to take the positives and the negatives from what we did on Saturday and keep looking towards the future.

“We all now need to have our heads and minds already focused on what we are going to do on Tuesday, which will be a very difficult game as well. Swansea won’t be doing us any favours at all, just the opposite; they’ll be fighting hard to stay in this competition.

“We have to take a look inwardly at ourselves, understand the hard work that we have to put in and be aware of the quality of players that we have at the club.

“Above all, we have to understand what the manager explains to us to do tactically in this particular game, which is very important for us to keep progressing in this competition.

“We hope to bounce back with a victory which is the most important thing for team spirit, harmony and peace of mind and for our confidence.”

Romero has made one appearance for Jose Mourinho’s side this season in the EFL Cup, a 4-1 win over Burton Albion, and is expected to be given another outing against the Swans.
