Top v bottom lets hope they don't assume its going to be an easy win and take their foot off the gas.


TEAM NEWS

Swansea are assessing a muscle injury suffered by Wayne Routledge on Saturday in just his second start of the season.

Federico Fernandez is amongst the players pushing for a recall after returning to the bench at the weekend.

Manchester City central defender Vincent Kompany has a muscular injury and won't face Swansea, while Benjamin Mendy and John Stones remain out.

Forward Sergio Aguero is likely to be recalled as manager Pep Guardiola rotates his squad.

MOTD COMMENTATOR'S NOTES

Jonathan Pearce: "Manchester City's start is now the best in English top-flight history. Tottenham, in 1961, also had 15 wins and a draw from their opening 16 games but City have a superior goal difference. Like that wonderful Spurs side, we are seeing something really special.

"Five Premier League sides with 40 or more points by now have all won the title. City will have it sewn up in time to rest players for the Champions League without concern.

"It's not the biggest gap at the top by this point - but it's big enough.

"Swansea have improved their dismal home record. They're desperate for points. But I only see a record breaking 15th successive Premier League win for the champions-elect."

WHAT THE MANAGERS SAY

Swansea head coach Paul Clement: "We are the underdogs, no question, but plenty of teams in the past have been in that role and got a result. We will make it as hard as we can.

"We are playing the best team in the league at this point, they can win in different ways at different places."

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola: "People might think we've already won the Premier League, but I don't think that.

"Playing in the Champions League plays an influence on the season. Obviously in the future we can drop points and the league can be more open, but we are proud and happy of what we have done so far."

LAWRO'S PREDICTION

Swansea had to fight hard to see off West Brom on Saturday, and it is asking a lot for them to do the same against the leaders.

Prediction: 0-2

I believe he had a little sulk after his latest press conference as all the reporters asked questions about his strop,  he had another after it was over asking why no one had asked about their next game, what a prat.   ;D

Would love press to ask him about City's more realistic claim for a penalty for Otamendi being pulled back
As been all about their claims for a pen

I love Swansea away - half day in work then train over to Jackland. A couple of us due to be in Port Talbot for about 1pm. for an early booze, followed by another 12 Blues coming over from Newport, catching up with us about 3.30

I've booked Thursday off....

I'm not a fan of Otter but I was impressed by Van Dyke the other week when we played Southampton - wasn't too keen on him before, but now I think he would make a fantastic defensive addition.

I am glad that the Mangler is being given a chance though - I seriously believe that given a decent run of games he could develop the same way as Delph has ie. on the fringes of the club with a view to being moved on, to a valuable member of the squad.
