Swansea City 0-0 Manchester City: Match Review

liberty stadium

Swansea and Manchester City played out a goalless draw at the Liberty Stadium as the visitors failed to cement second position in the Premier League.

Michael Laudrup post-match…“We were playing a great team, but the second half was not the best football for both sides. We keep our position of ninth in the table with a game in hand so we are happy with that. Michu was fouled in the first half, it was a huge penalty but we have not had one in the league all season.”

Roberto Mancini post-match“The first half was so-so but we missed five incredible chances to score. We had motivation because we want to get second place. Yaya Toure was not good, he had a problem in the warm up and when he came off we missed him He will be ok for the final though.”

Good day for…Leon Britton: Another sparkling afternoon in the middle of the park for Swansea’s Mr Consistent, as he outshone Yaya Toure. In fact all of the City midfield paled in comparison to Britton, whose touch and distribution was a cut above.

Bad day for…Michu: Although his performance wasn’t up to his usual high-standard he was by no means the worst player on the park. Unfortunately for the prolific Spaniard an injury in the second half forced him off and could prematurely end his season.
