Manchester City vs Swansea City Preview
Manchester, Oct 27: Manchester City have the home backing against Swansea City as the reigning champions are currently unbeaten at the Etihad in 33 league games.

After being thrashed 3-1 by Ajax in the UEFA Champions League, Roberto Mancini's side look to get back to winning ways against a Welshside who seem uncomfortable with Maichael Laudrup's techniques.

Although Mancini's men don't seem to gel well in Europe, their record in the Premier League has been impressive so far, unbeaten in eight games with five wins and 3 losses.

Scott Sinclair is set to face his former side as playmaker David Silva is still out with a hamstring injury while winger James Milner is suspended. Midfielder Yaya Toure, Jack Rodwell and Javi Martinez are doubtful.

Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero are set to start upfront while Edin Dzeko, who started the game against Ajax, is set to be benched despite scoring five goals as a substitute.

Michu, who has scored six goals this season, will continue in a central forward position after fine show against Wigan last week.

In-form winger Wayne Routledge and record signing Pablo Hernandez are set to support Michu upfront.

Trivia:

*Manchester City are unbeaten in 33 home games and are still unbeaten this season.

*Swansea have won just one and lost five of their last seven games in the league.

Probable Lineups:

Manchester City (4-2-3-1): Hart, Richards, Kompany, Lescott, Clichy-Barry, Toure-Sinclair, Nasri, Tevez-Aguero.

Swansea City (4-3-3): Vorm, Rangel, Chico, Williams, Davies-De Guzman, Ki, Britton-Hernandez, Michu, Routledge.
