David Moyes’ side are currently on a three-game losing streak following a 2-1 defeat by Sunderland in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final on Tuesday night.
They have to win this game and we must be ready for that
Last Sunday, Swansea knocked United out of the FA Cup at the third-round stage after Wilfried Bony scored a late winner in a 2-1 victory at Old Trafford.
United haven’t lost four games on the bounce since 1961, and Laudrup warned Swansea to expect a back lash in their Premier League encounter this weekend.
“Manchester United will come out and have a real go at us,” Laudrup said.
“This is a game they want to win, they have to win this game and we must be ready for that.
“I don’t think the United players like what they are reading and what they are hearing at the moment about these negative records so I know this will be a very tough game for us.
“But football can change in a very short space of time. If they beat us, win their next game then beat Sunderland 1-0 in their second leg, suddenly they’re back near the top four in the league and in a final at Wembley.”
