Laudrup: Reds will turn form around

Swansea boss Michael Laudrup (pictured) believes Manchester United will turn around their poor start to the season.

The Red Devils are on a run of three straight defeats in all competitions, the second of which came at the hand of Laudrup's Swansea in the FA Cup last weekend.

A fourth successive loss when the Swans visit Old Trafford in the Premier League today would make it United's worst run since 1961, and their hopes of retaining their title appear all but over as they trail leaders Arsenal by 11 points.

But Laudrup expects David Moyes and his players to get back on track, having experienced a similar slump during his spell with Real Madrid.

The Spanish giants could only finish sixth during the 1995-96 campaign, having won the title the previous season, but hit back to win the Primera Division a year later.

Laudrup said: "I have been through a bad period with a big club myself, in my second year at Real Madrid.

"But big clubs are always coming out at the end of the tunnel, they always bounce back and Manchester United will do the same like Madrid did.

"You can change some players to get the winning feeling back but they have that and I am sure they will get back on track. Let's just hope they wait until after Saturday and they are not too angry with us!"
