Match Preview : Manchester City vs Swansea

Manchester City are level on points with fourth place Liverpool but are outside the top four on goal difference after thrashing West Ham 4-0 on Wednesday.

Pep Guardiola’s side have only lost one home game all season but have only managed to keep two clean sheets in 11 matches at the Etihad in the league.

Swansea have won consecutive matches in the league for the first time this season since Paul Clement took charge but this is a huge test and one they aren’t expected to overcome.

Both teams have scored in each of their last six encounters and it could prove another high scoring affair.
