Manchester City and Swansea City will be going head to head in the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, when they meet for their Premier League encounter.
The Swan's performance off lately has been an inspirational one. From the relegation zone, they've moved up to the 17th place in the table, with the help of three impressive victories. They started their winning run with 2-1 win against Crystal Palace, which they followed with a couple of massive wins against Liverpool and Southampton. Having taken care of some of the formidable sides in the league, they'll now face a weary City side.
Sitting at the fifth place with 46 points, the hosts last defeated West Ham United by a massive 4-0 scoreline. Prior to that, they had dropped points against Everton, Liverpool and Spurs, which proved to be bit costly. Their defense hasn't been that strong as the other teams have found ways to get past them.
Statistics dictate that Manchester City have gone without a defeat in 13 of their last 14 matches at home, and have scored two goals in their last four games as the hosts. However, with a daunting attack from the Swans, their defenders will be under pressure. They'll need to avoid making mistakes like they did against Everton and fight to win here.
Swansea City will travel to the Etihad to take on Manchester City in what seems to be a one sided affair right from the onset. This game is scheduled to be played on December 12, 2015 at 15:00 hours BST.
Manchester City will be going into this game on the back of a convincing midweek win in the Champions League. Sergio Aguero will most likely miss this game as well, however, with the likes of David Silva, Yaya Toure and Kevin De Bruyne in good form, City look menacing. Raheem Sterling scored a couple of goals in the midweek game as well which could see him grow in confidence.
Swansea City lost their last game to Leicester City 3-0. They will be hoping to turn things around in this game. However, given the fact that most of their players have not found their feet and the team is not managing to play as a unit, they will find it difficult to come out of this away game with anything.
Comparing the two teams on paper as well as individually comparing players, it is quite clear that the team from the Blue side of Manchester, are in a better position to come out with the win and the three points.
The Champions Manchester City will host Swansea at the Etihad Stadium on November 22, 2014 with kick-off at 15:00 hours BST. This game promises to be a good one with both teams playing top quality football.
Both these teams are currently playing very good football and with taking recent performances into consideration could end up canceling out each other. However, when their line-ups are compared on paper, City surely looks to be the side that should clinch the three points. They have the home advantage on their side as well. Sergio Aguero has been in great nick with twelve goals to his name already. Ten of those were scored in the last five games. David Silva who has been out due to injury could return to the squad for this game as well.
Wilfred Bony has not played as well as expected and has scored just four times this season. However a win over Arsenal last week should give him and his team quite a bit of confidence going into this game.
You cannot ignore the fact that City can tear apart any opposition on their day and hence it is hard to see the Swansea City coming out of this game with anything.
