Manchester City v Swansea preview: Paul Clement going for three in a row

Super Sunday

Swansea will be looking to make it three Premier League wins on the spin when they travel to face Manchester City, live on Super Sunday on Sky Sports 1 HD from 12.30pm.

Recently appointed head coach Paul Clement has had an immediate impact, sending his team out to win successive Premier League games for the first time this season, moving them out of the relegation places.

However, the Swans still possess the leakiest defence in the league having conceded 52 goals this campaign.

Live Nissan Super Sunday

They have only kept one clean sheet in their last 14 league matches and will be tested against Pep Guardiola's side, who hammered West Ham 4-0 at the London Stadium on Wednesday night.

Despite being off the pace in the title race, City are two points better off than after 23 games last season and have beaten Swansea in six of their last seven meetings.

Team news

Willy Caballero could keep his place in goal for Manchester City's Premier League clash at the Etihad.

The Argentine has been preferred to Claudio Bravo for City's last two games and could be retained after keeping clean sheets in both.

Top scorer Sergio Aguero could return to the starting line-up after being on the bench in midweek. City have no injury issues aside from long-term absentee Ilkay Gundogan.

For Swansea, Clement could name an unchanged starting line-up for a third consecutive game.

Leon Britton has returned to training following a calf injury and is expected to make the squad.

Opta stats

Manchester City have lost only one of their 11 Premier League matches against Swansea City (W8 D2) and are unbeaten in the last nine.

Swansea have lost all five of their Premier League visits to the Etihad, conceding 12 goals and scoring just two.

Indeed, Swansea haven't won away at Manchester City in the league since March 1951, losing all 10 matches since then.

Aguero bagged a brace in the reverse fixture at Liberty Stadium as the Citizens ran out 3-1 winners. Aguero hadn't scored against the Swans since his PL debut in August 2011, in which he netted twice off the bench.

Gabriel Jesus had a hand in two goals on his first Premier League start in their midweek win over West Ham - one more goal involvement than Aguero in his last five Premier League appearances (one goal, no assists).

In fact, Aguero has got as many red cards (1) as goals (1) in his last five Premier League appearances.

Yaya Toure has had a hand in six goals in his last six Premier League apps against Swansea (four goals, two assists).

Toure has scored all of his 11 penalties in the Premier League following his midweek spot-kick against West Ham. He has scored the most of any player with a 100% record from the spot in the competition.

Manchester City have won just two of their last 12 Premier League games played on a Sunday (W2 D5 L5).

Clement has won three of his four Premier League matches in charge of Swansea (L1) - as many as the Swans won in their first 19 of this campaign.

Swansea have won their last two away Premier League games - they have only won three in a row once before, doing so in August 2014 under Garry Monk.

Merson's prediction

Manchester City were outstanding against West Ham. The pace and movement, everything about them was different class. I know Swansea have been brilliant in recent weeks but I think Man City will show Liverpool how bad a result they picked up against Clement's side at home.

Can anyone stop Chelsea?

Swansea have been great recently but there are some games which are just free swings and they've put themselves in a position where this is exactly that.

However, if I've picked the results right they could find themselves in the bottom three by the time this game comes around. Considering how well they've done in recent matches that would be a blow.



Manchester City are just 2/9 with Sky Bet as Swansea go up against odds of 11/1 to win and 11/2 just to leave with a point.

Aguero heads the first goalscorer market at 3/1 with Gabriel Jesus the 7/2 second favourite, while Fernando Llorente is considered the visitors' main threat.

The Soccer Saturday pundits have provided their predictions, including Charlie Nicholas' 40/1 fancy for Kevin De Bruyne to net first in a 4-0 win.
