Manchester City will be hoping to put their midweek horror show in Amsterdam behind them, when they welcome Swansea City to the Ethihad on Saturday evening.
Roberto Mancini bravely took the blame for his side’s poor display in midweek, and will be hoping for three Premier League points to keep the pressure on Chelsea at the top of the table.
Swansea ended their run of five games without a win, by beating Wigan 2-1 at the Liberty Stadium last Saturday.
The result especially came as a relief to Michael Laudrup, who had to quash rumours of dressing room unrest ahead of the fixture.
David Silva will remain absent for Roberto Mancini, as he is still suffering with a hamstring injury.
Pablo Zabaleta, Javi Garcia, Maicon and Jack Rodwell are also absent, while James Milner is suspended following his red card in last weekend’s dramatic win over West Bromwich Albion.
Swansea have no new injury concerns to deal with ahead of the trip to Manchester.
Prediction: Manchester City 3-0 Swansea City
