Manchester United vs. Swansea takes place in the Premier League this afternoon.

The game, which takes place at Old Trafford, is scheduled to kick off at 16:00 BST, and airs live in the UK on Sky Sports 1/Sky Sports 1 HD.

Ahead of the game, David Moyes has spoken of his admiration for Sir Alex Ferguson - the man he will replace at the Old Trafford helm next season.

On Thursday it was confirmed that Moyes will take charge of the Premier League champions on July 1st following Sir Alex's retirement at the end of the season after over 26 years in charge.

Ferguson is preparing for his final home game in charge of United, and Moyes, who will remain in charge of Everton until the end of the season, says the 71-year-old will be missed by everyone in the game.

"It is a strange thing. I don't think anyone thought the day would come when Sir Alex retired. We all thought he was superhuman," Moyes told reporters on Friday.

"I said last week, I thought he was a great example to everybody in their 70s; how you work. We are all living longer, working longer, eating healthier. Life is changing. We are doing all the things you would hope will give us a much longer life.

"He will be sorely missed, particularly by a lot of managers because he always spoke to them. He would always have a quiet word for anybody who was out of work or going into a job. His respect is beyond any real words.

"We are slightly different eras in terms of age," added the 50-year-old Scot who will officially take over at Old Trafford on 1 July.

"I grew up looking at Jock Stein and Sir Alex Ferguson. They were the managers I was looking at in Scotland when I was growing up.

"Sir Alex has always been someone I have admired, then started to compete against. That was daunting enough. Everyone has great admiration for him. Any words I say won't do it justice because of what the man has done."

The game is also streaming live online via the Sky Sports-powered Now TV, which is available free of charge via Sky Bet.
