Joe Allen says he can't wait to face his boyhood club Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
With just two games to go, the Swans midfielder says the team will be looking to end the season on a high after securing safety from relegation last weekend following the 4-4 home draw against Wolves.
Manchester United have it all to play for, having thrown away their lead at the top of the table. They're now level on points with arch rivals Manchester City so the pressure is on them to pick a much needed three points.
Joe Allen said:
'This is one of the games I earmarked at the start of the season, as I'm sure some of our supporters did,'
'I supported Manchester United growing up, although these days I don't follow them as much because I'm focused on what we're doing.
'But you want to test yourself against the best, so to play against Manchester United at Old Trafford will be a special occasion.
'We won't get caught up in that on the day though. I think we did get caught up in it when we played them earlier in the season at the Liberty, but since then we have played the likes of Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs - so we are more settled and accustomed against the big clubs.'
Allen also says they want to give the fans a 'great send off' after a fantastic debut season in the Premier League.
'The great thing about this group is that we never stand still and always want to push on,'
'Yes, we are safe now but that doesn't mean we can switch off. We are going to Old Trafford to play the defending champions and after that we finish the season at home to Liverpool.
'Those are two massive games against massive clubs and we want to give our supporters a great send-off to the season because they've been brilliant everywhere we have gone.
'United are obviously going for the title, but it would be a huge scalp for us if we could upset them.'
