Manchester United play host to Swansea this afternoon in the Premier League.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is preparing to pick his final Manchester United team for a game at Old Trafford.

This afternoon's clash marks the end of an era for the Red Devils, who will collect the Premier League trophy after the final whistle.

As well as today's marking Sir Alex's final home game before he retires, this afternoon's match will also be Paul Scholes' last at Old Trafford.

Scholes is set to play against Swansea and on Saturday confirmed he will retire "for good" at the end of the season.

Ferguson may leave Wayne Rooney out of his side after the 27-year-old recently asked to leave the club.

Danny Welbeck (knee) could return, but Rafael is suspended.

Swansea travel to Manchester without Angel Rangel (calf) and Michel Vorm (concussion).

But Michu (hamstring) could be set for a surprise return, just a week after manager Michael Laudrup said he would miss the remainder of the season.

Speaking on Saturday, Ferguson said of Scholes: "Paul is a truly unbelievable player. He has always been fully committed to this club and it has been a real privilege to work with him for so many years.

"Paul will play at Old Trafford on Sunday against Swansea and will collect an unbelievable but well-deserved 11th Premier League medal."

Kick-off is 16:00 BST and the game airs live in the UK on Sky Sports 1. The game is also streaming live online via the Sky Sports-powered Now TV, which is available free of charge via Sky Bet.
