Manchester City vs Swansea City Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Manchester City were crowned as the Premier League champions after a 3-1 win over Tottenham at the Wembley. A lapse in concentration from Spurs for just three minutes led to Gabriel Jesus and Iker Gundogan giving City a massive lead. Even though Eriksen continued his excellent form by grabbing one goal back just before half-time, there was not to be a comeback for the hosts. City went on to win the title with a second-half goal from Sterling. Swansea’s winless run continued as the team drew 1-1 against Everton. Kyle Naughton’s own goal gave the visitors a decisive lead just before the break, but the Welsh team equalised in the second-half through Jordan Ayew.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Manchester City will be in a celebratory mood coming into this game, but Swansea have a job to do. The Welsh team can go rather close to safety by getting a victory in the game. City’s unbeaten run at home came to an end with the loss against United, but the game once again highlighted City’s tremendous scoring power at home. In the last seven league matches at the Etihad Stadium, City have scored less than 2.5 goals only twice. However, City are unlikely to be chasing goals in this game since they have a much bigger prize awaiting them. I would back Manchester City to score less than 2.5 goals.

Sergio Aguero’s injury has provided a good run in the starting line-up for the Gabriel Jesus, who has rewarded the faith of Guardiola with goals in back-to-back games. After having scored against Liverpool and Tottenham, Jesus heads into the game with confidence. He scored a brace against Swansea in the last meeting at the Etihad Stadium. Jesus is a good pick to score first in the match.

Manchester City to score under 2.5 goals – 6/5

Manchester City Preview

Newly crowned Premier League champions enter into the game against Swansea City looking to enjoy their remaining matches in the campaign. City would have ideally liked to be involved in the latter stages of the Champions League and FA Cup, but the exits from both competitions has left a little disappointment. However, the Etihad Stadium will be in a joyous mood to welcome Pep Guardiola’s incredible team. The comfortable victory over Tottenham last weekend summed up the dominance of City in the Premier League this season. Even with star strikers like Sergio Aguero missing due to injuries, City continue to get strong results.

Manchester City Team News

John Stones (thigh) and Sergio Aguero (knee) are unavailable due to injuries while Fernandinho is missing due to suspension.

Swansea City Preview

The fear of relegation is still very much alive within Swansea City. The Welsh team have had a string of winless matches that have kept them in touching distance of teams like Southampton and Stoke City. The only two defeats for Swansea in the last five games have come against Tottenham and Manchester United – two teams in the top four places of the Premier League. However, Swansea have just been unable to convert draws into victories. Still, the Welsh team are favourites to avoid the drop due to a four-point advantage over Southampton.

Swansea City Team News

Sam Clucas (knee), Renato Sanches (hamstring), Wilfried Bony (cruciate ligament), and Leroy Fer (Achilles tendon) are unavailable due to injuries.
