    Premier League Preview: Swansea v Man City

    Written by: @GrantMilesFF

    Manchester City have started to really hit their stride  at the Etihad, and arguably more importantly away from home too.

    Their Achilles Heel at the start of the season was their travel sickness, but now City appear to have a belief, wherever they go, that they can take three points. They have collected 16 points from their last 18.

    Swansea, on the other hand, are winless in five but their display at Villa Park gave more than enough signs to show that they will be able to turn the corner in the New Year. They had 74% possession against the Villans and were frustrated to have only come away with a draw last time out.

    Michael Laudrup has suggested his squad have been stretched by their fixture schedule and he will be without Michu who has a long term ankle problem. Nathan Dyer and Michel Vorm are set for a sustained spell on the sidelines both with knee complaints.

    Manuel Pellegrini also has a few injuries which forced him to reshuffle the pack and make 6 changes in their 1-0 victory against Crystal Palace. Sergio Aguero is expected to be back in January but is still struggling with a calf injury. Defensive duo Micah Richards and Martin Demichelis also look set to miss out here.

    England international Joe Hart suffered an eye injury last time out but is expected to recover to start in goal.

    FFC Predicts: Swansea 1-3 Man City

    There were signs of recovery from the Swans against Villa but Man City have looked in ominous form as the title has been called theirs to lose by several pundits, as the season starts to move towards the business end.

    Swansea v Man City Pre-Match Stats

    Swansea conceded 15 shots on target in their first ever Barclays Premier League game (against Man City in August 2011), a game they lost 4-0.

    The Citizens have kept five clean sheets in their last six league meetings with Swansea City.

    Manchester City have won four Barclays Premier League games in a row, they have not won 5+ in a row within a single season since a spell of six wins won them the title in 2011-12.

    Arsenal are the only team to record Premier League five wins in a row so far in 2013-14 (Aug-Sept).

    Swansea took only 39 points from 37 Premier League games in 2013. They won 55 from 39 games in 2012.

    Jesus Navas has made three assists and scored one goal in his last four Premier League appearances.

    Man City have scored 29 second half goals in the Premier League this season; a league-high.

    Swansea City have scored only four goals in their last five Premier League games.

    Manchester City need two goals in this game to match the best goal total recorded by a Premier League team after 20 games (56 by Man City in 2011-12)

    Nine teams have won more away points in the Premier League than Manchester City (11) this season.
