Manchester City v Swansea City Preview, Premiership, Sunday 5th February 2017.

Manchester City will be desperate for the win on Sunday especially seeing as though Liverpool’s continued misery carry’s on against Hull City away from home. With Liverpool losing 2 – 0 on their travels a win for Manchester City could will see them climb up the table and into second position with Arsenal also losing to Chelsea. Tottenham Hotspurs will have a game in hand over City however which would knock them down a spot.

There are a few easier games coming up for Manchester City with them solid favourites to beat Swansea City Sunday lunchtime. They then face AFC Bournemouth away from home and after its back to the FA Cup competition with a trip to Huddersfield Town. Three days later City are at home against French club Monaco in the Champions League which they should win, then after it is back to Premier League football.

Swansea City have enjoyed a good run of form lately with them winning both of their last two games. The wins include the dismal Liverpool who lost again on Saturday but this time to relegation battling side Hull City. A victory at home against Southampton also gave them a much needed three points which has now taken them out of the relegation zone and into seventeenth position in the table.

The Welsh side will be at home after this game where they welcome last seasons champions Leicester City. Although I can’t see them beating Manchester City they could very well beat Leicester as they themselves are in a terrible run of form, which could continue as they play Manchester United straight after this lunchtime kickoff. Burnley and Hull City complete the clubs next five fixtures, so plenty of points up on offer for Swansea City.

Manchester City Team News:

With Claudio Bravo proving to be a very dodgy goalkeeper we could very well see Willy Caballero start again with him proving to be a better option. Sergio Aguero could potentially start as the striker was on the bench in the clubs midweek game. Manchester City’s only injury is Ilkay Gundogan who is considered long term.

Swansea City Team News:

Swansea do not seem to have many major injury concerns ahead of this away game to Manchester City with Leon Britton the only name to miss out. He has however returned to training after recovering from a calf strain but will no doubt require some match fitness. New manager Paul Clement has made an instant impact at the club, but could he continue the clubs winning run since taking over?

Manchester City v Swansea City Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Premier League action this Sunday will be in Manchester for the early kick off and then Leicester for the afternoon. First of all the game will be live via Sky Sports 1 and of course in high definition, where for this game it will be at the Etihad stadium where Manchester City welcome Welsh side Swansea City, who themselves will be looking to provide another upset, much like they did against Liverpool recently.

This should be a routine win for the Manchester club who are the better team in form coming into this game, regardless of the fact Swansea City have won their last two games. If Manchester City do win they will jump from sixth place up into second position with both Arsenal and Liverpool losing this Saturday. As mentioned previously, Spurs will have a game in hand over City and could take back that place at a later date.

Swansea City will be hoping to continue their incredible winning run against Manchester City and doing so could see them climb a couple of positions in the table and mount a serious attempt of their Premier League survival. With Hull City and Sunderland both winning it is important for the Welsh side to grab as many points as possible to avoid the drop into the Championship.

My predictions for this game are of course to back the favourites Manchester City as although Swansea City are doing well, I just don’t see that they have it in them to beat this Manchester based side. My banker tip will however be for both teams to score in the match and of course for Manchester City to win, taking them up into second place. My next will be for new boy Gabriel Jesus to score first in the match with that showing some good odds.
