Manchester United vs Swansea City will be the afternoon kick in the English Premier League on Saturday as the EPL season gets under way with a bang.

The match will take place at Liberty Stadium, and United will be hoping to get their defense of the EPL title off to a good start today with an away win for new manager David Moyes.

The match will kick off at 5.30 p.m. BST (12.30 p.m. ET) and can be watched online through free live stream via a Fox Soccer 2Go subscription via the link below.

For today's match up Wayne Rooney has traveled with the United squad and will be expected to feature at some point.

However, in other team news Michael Carrick (eye) and Javier Hernandez (thigh) are doubts, with Rafael serving the final game of his 3 match ban.

For Swansea, midfielder Jonathan de Guzman is unavailable after suffering a concussion recently. Also Pablo Hernandez (groin) and Jonjo Shelvey (illness) are fit again.

Much of the spotlight of today's game will be on Wayne Rooney, who managed to complete more than an hour of play for England in their 3-2 win over Scotland during the week.

However, he is still very much getting back to match fitness as prior to that he has only taken part in a 45-minute appearance in a behind-closed-doors practice game against Real Betis 10 days ago.

For Moyes getting a good start this season is essential otherwise things could quickly go downhill for him. He has huge boots to fill following Sir Alex Ferguson's departure and there will undoubtedly be huge pressure for him to do well, quickly this season.

One thing that the United fans and hierarchy will be looking for is how the players respond to Moyes, but of course results at a club as big as United will be the ultimate test of how long Moyes will be at United.
