With four losses in their last five this City double header is the first-half of an unforgiving run that sees the Swans tackle Liverpool and then Arsenal. Their record reads W2-D3-L7 when hosting top-four sides in the last three seasons, as their last win came in 2014/15 and each of their last four defeats have been by a margin of two or more goals.
The Citizens have now netted 27 times in their nine consecutive wins as their attacking game has been a joy to behold. To make matters worse for the Swans, Aguero is set to return, but such has been the progression of City under Guardiola they’ve hardly missed the Argentine, with the likes of De Bruyne and Sterling flourishing. The Manchester club seem to get better with every game and with a stronger starting XI we expect them to improve on their mid-week result.
Best Bet: Man City -1 Handicap at 1.95
