Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers says his approach to Saturday's game won't be much different to any other, as his side take on the Premier League title holders.
The Swans picked up a confidence-boosting 0-0 draw at Liverpool a fortnight ago, and Reds manager Kenny Daglish said that his side struggled to string 5 or 6 passes together against the visiting team that day.
Rodgers says he aims for his side to do the same on Saturday, dominate possession and create chances.
Whilst it'll be far from easy, the Swansea manager says while they'll look to go on the offensive, they'll also be cautious that United will have world-class quality than can create goals from anywhere.
'Our approach will not fundamentally change. We want to dominate the game with the ball, and the statistics show that we have been able to do that this season.
'Obviously you have to retain the caution of knowing that players at this level have a higher quality, especially against one of the top European sides with a number of players that can hurt you.
'But Kenny Dalglish said after our draw at Anfield that they couldn't string five or six passes together, which was good for me to hear because we work hard on getting the ball back quickly.
'So our idea of the game will be the same, it will be creative and offensive but our five clean sheets also show that we are tactically disciplined.
'It's a fantastic game for us, in the big games we are the underdog but we arrive in the game with confidence and belief that if we play to our maximum we can get a result.
'It will be an incredible atmosphere. It's an early evening kick-off and it will feel like there are 50,000 in the stadium, so with that and our qualities we will try to exploit that if they have an off day.'
