Manchester City and Swansea City face at Etihad Stadium, in a match for the 16th round of the Premier League. The head‑to‑head history at this stadium, favours the home team, since in the last 4 head‑to‑heads they won 4. Accordingly, in the last head‑to‑head played at this stadium, for the Premier League, on 22‑11‑2014, Manchester City won by (2‑1). S. Jovetić (19' ) and Y. Touré (62' ) scored for Manchester City and W. Bony (9' ) for Swansea City.

Analysis of Manchester City

The home team is currently in the 3rd position of the league, with 29 points won, after 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Southampton, by (3‑1). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Stoke City, by (2‑0). They come to this match after a home win against Borussia M'gladbach by (4‑2). For the league, Manchester City won 18 points out of 24 possible points, after 6 wins and 2 losses in the last 8 home matches. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 7 of the last 8 matches for this competition have ended with Over 2,5 goals. In 15 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 4 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

After a motivating win over Borussia Mönchengladbach, Manchester City wishes to continue chasing Leicester, to reach the first position of the premiership. In this match coach Manuel Pellegrini should use the usual 4-2-3-1 system, privileging attacks through the wings, particularly the right hand side, taking advantage of the quality of Kevin De Bruyne. However, Sergio Aguero is still in doubt, due to physical problems.

Confirmed Lineup: J. Hart, E. Mangala, B. Sagna, N. Otamendi, G. Clichy, David Silva, Jesús Navas, R. Sterling, Fernandinho, Y. Touré, W. Bony.
Coach: M. Pellegrini.

Analysis of Swansea City

The away team is currently in the 15th position of the league, with 14 points won, after 3 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Liverpool, by (1‑0). In the last match, they lost in a home match against Leicester City, by (0‑3). In the last 7 away league matches Swansea City has a record of 1 win, 2 draws and 4 losses, so they have won 5 points out of 21 possible. In their away matches there are a few frequent results: at half‑time 0‑0 (4 out of 7 matches) and after the 90' 1‑0 (3 out of 7 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first. They have opened up the score in only 3 of the last 15 matches for the Premier League, they have reached half‑time in front in all of those

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario is that will be in front at half-time. We expect City to dominate from the first minute, to try to get an early lead and then control the pace of the match. Moreover, Swansea doesn’t seem to have enough individual and collective arguments to bet the home team.
