. . . Spaniard feels Swans have nothing to lose against United
Angel Rangel believes a brave approach is key to taking points off Manchester United on Sunday.
The Barclays Premier League leaders visit the Sunday looking to maintain their perfect record against the Swans, having won 1-0 at the Liberty last season before a 2-0 win in the penultimate game of the campaign at Old Trafford.
But having beaten Liverpool, Newcastle and Arsenal this term, the Swans have shown they are capable of claiming the scalps of the division’s heavyweights.
"We are not naive anymore, particularly against the big clubs at home,” said the right-back.
"What we have to do is be positive and brave and go for the game.
"If you go and give too much respect to the opponent, you are going to get beaten.
"It happened at Manchester City in the first game of last season, we weren't ourselves.
"We have to go out and give everything this weekend. We know the crowd is going to be behind us 100 per cent.”
Sir Alex Ferguson’s side are six points clear at the top, having won seven of their away games this term.
The Swans, meanwhile, are tenth in the table and eight points clear of third-bottom Wigan.
Ahead of a busy festive period, which sees a schedule packed with four games in nine days, the Swans are hoping to bounce back after two consecutive league defeats.
But Rangel feels there will be no pressure on the Swans this Sunday.
"We have nothing to lose in this game," Rangel insists. "The only pressure we have is that we play at home.
"We want to win every game at home, but this time we are playing against the team on top of the league.
"Hopefully we can go out and do something good."
