Swansea City vs Manchester City Team News, Tactical Analysis
Swansea City vs Manchester City Preview, Predictions, Team News: Let us have a look at some injury and suspension news coming out from both Swansea City and Manchester City and also see how this game will affect their Premier League rankings:
There is only one major casualty Swansea City has to deal with. They will possibly be missing CB Kyle Bartley for the rest of the league/season due to the knee injury he sustained recently. They are currently in the 19th position with 12 points and risk of Relegation. As they are only one point behind the 17th position and a recent victory; this game serves a nice opportunity of getting two positions up and get out of risk of Relegation. However, they are struggling a lot throughout the Premier League and this match is the toughest challenge so far for them.
There are a couple of casualties Man City will be dealing with ahead of this game. They will be missing CB John Stones, LB Benjamin Mendy in their upcoming games. CB Vincent Kompany’s presence is also full of doubts.We are hoping a lot of rotation in this game from Manchester City. They are the only unbeaten team in the Premier League with 46 points and highest goal ratio. They are in a position in the points table, that cannot be chased down easily. For this game, win or lose, it won’t effect Man City much. However, their chances of losing are nearly zero.
