Match Highlights (English)
Swansea City can a tough opposition playing in their own backyard at the Liberty Stadium and Manchester City will need to forget their 2-1 win in the midweek and start over again. Swansea City are not having the best of the season so far but a good performance will boost their confidence. However they will have to cope with returning Sergio Aguero who is set to start for City upfront while packed midfield of Sterling, Silva, De Bruyne, Gundogan and Fernandinho will provide so much control for City.
Team News & Possible Starting Lineups: Vincent Kompany is out injured while Nolito is suspended. Fabien Delph is set to miss the Swansea clash due to lack of match fitness. Apart from that City has a full squad to choose from and Guardiola is expected to start with Otamendi and John Stones in central defence while Kolarov and Sagna to start in full back positions.
Swanse on the other hand will start with an unconventional 4-3-1-1 system where Baston to play upfront on his own while Barrow and Sigurdsson to start in attacking roles ahead of Cork, Britton and Fer. This is how I expect both teams to lineup.
