Manchester City v Swansea Premier League Preview, 22nd April 4.30pm
It will be party time at the Etihad on the weekend as the Citizens can celebrate their title win. Manchester United’s loss at home against West Brom last weekend gave City the title in a bit of an anticlimax. Regardless, City will look to mark the occasion with another home win which could leave some pressure on Swansea who are just above the drop zone.
Manchester City v Swansea Betting Odds*
Man City 1/7, Draw 7/1, Swansea 14/1* (Betting Odds taken at 4:36 p.m. on April 16th, 2018)
Manchester City News and Form
The Citizens will get to celebrate winning the league title as they step out at the Etihad on the weekend. They probably would have liked to have been in a position of winning the league title with victory in this one, but that’s not the way it panned out. City were superb last weekend in landing a 3-1 win at Spurs, especially after the rough run of form that they had over the previous week or so. City’s long winning streak at home was broken with a loss against rivals Manchester United in their last home game, but that’s just part of a W14 D1 L1 record they have posted on home soil. The Citizens will probably look to enjoy themselves in this one and they have averaged 3.31 goals per home game this season. So a Man City 3-0 correct score option at Betfair for 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:36 p.m. on April 16th, 2018) isn’t a bad option to consider really. Either way, City are going to be value to back to win to nil, having conceded at under a goal per game on average this season. City have scored in all of their home games this season and 68% of their home goals have been in the second half of matches.
Swansea News and
Not a great game for Swansea to face given their position in the league. They still have big relegation concerns and are on a four-match winless streak of form (D3 L1) after playing out a home draw with Everton on the weekend. Their away form isn’t great either with a winless streak of six going away from the Liberty Stadium. Overall they have only won twice on their travels this season (D6 L9) and they can’t really be expecting too much out of this one. The Swans have returned only 11 away goals all season in the league and 64% of their away goals have come in the second half of matches. They have at least scored in five of their last seven away games but it hasn’t been enough to get themselves the wins that they have needed often enough. At the back they have taken just the one clean sheet in their last six league outings home and away. They are going to be vulnerable here, especially given the occasion but they may well be able to keep the game under 3.5 goals which is 8/11 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:36 p.m. on April 16th, 2018) at Betfair. Following this they face Chelsea and then have to really put their survival stock in their easier three games at the end of the season.
Manchester City v Swansea Head to Head
The Citizens romped to a 4-0 win at the Liberty Stadium back in December and that is a four-match winning streak that they are on against the Swans in all competitions now. They are unbeaten in their last eleven Premier League games against the Welsh outfit and have won all previous six home matches in the EPL against Swansea. Each of City’s last three home wins against them have been by a 2-1 scoreline. Both teams have scored in eight of the last nine clashes in all competitions.
Who will win – Manchester City v Swansea Predictions
Manchester City will probably just go out and enjoy the smiles in this one. That could make them extra dangerous, because if they are relaxed and creative, Swansea could be in for a bruising afternoon. City to win to nil.
