Swansea v Manchester City Premier League Preview, 13th December 7.45pm
The Swans managed to finally get a win on the board over the weekend as they took down the struggling West Brom. The needed that as well and it did manage to pull them off the bottom of the table at the expense of Crystal Palace. However, they face Manchester City who set a new Premier League record for the most consecutive wins as they took down rivals United at Old Trafford on Sunday. Will they keep the streak going? Man City are 1/5 to take the win, with the draw at 11/2 and Swansea at 12/1.
Swansea News and Form
The Swans earned a much needed three points last weekend as they found a way to get the better of the slumping West Brom. It was a 1-0 win that Swansea took thanks to an effort from Wilfried Bony late in the game. That gives them a shot at getting out of the drop zone in midweek, but there is a bit of a thankless task ahead of them. Swansea have returned just the nine goals in their sixteen league matches this season and despite their lowly position they haven’t been terrible at the back. They have a better defensive record than the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Leicester who are up in the top half of the table, but their own lack of output up front has hurt them badly. There probably isn’t going to be too much in this one for them and in the William Hill correct score market, a Manchester City 2-0 is the shortest priced option at 13/2. Basically, the Citizens are a 21/20 price to turn up and win with a clean sheet. Swansea have been trailing at half time in half of their eight home games and at the Liberty Stadium the Swans have only a W2 D1 L5 record and with just the five goals scored. Swansea have failed to score in four of their last six league games.
Manchester City News and Form
City set a new Premier League record with a victory over Manchester United on the weekend and each of their last four Premier League wins have all been by a 2-1 scoreline. So they haven’t been firing out those big wins as of late but have shown a lot of character in digging in and winning a little bit more ugly here and there. They are eight wins from eight out on their travels so far this season in the top flight and they are averaging 2.5 goals on the road, so they should be comfortable in this against a low scoring side that Swansea are. City have only shipped the five away goals so far as well and both teams not to score with William Hill looks a good 4/5 option to have a look at. Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus again go as joint anytime goalscorer favourites for a game at a price of 8/13. 80% of City’s goals conceded on the road have come in the first half of matches while they have scored 60% of their away goals in the second half of games. Nine of their twenty away goals have been produced the final half hour of matches. City have opened the scoring in six of their eight away games so far this season. They may not need too much to out-gun the Swans, will Pep Guardiola’s men stretch out their winning form to fifteen games?
Swansea v Manchester City Head to Head
Manchester City have remained unbeaten in their last ten Premier League games against Swansea. They took a 3-1 away win at the Liberty Stadium last season and also won there in the EFL Cup as well. Both teams have scored in each of the last eight meetings in all competitions between these two surprisingly. City have won three of their last four visits to the Liberty Stadium (D1) in the top flight.
Who will win – Swansea v Manchester City Predictions
Manchester City have all the form going and after a quick turn around of matches, it may be worth looking at somewhat of a conservative win for the Citizens in this one. The 2-0 correct score for the Citizens has appeal at the Liberty.
