Manchester City face Swansea this weekend, with the latest Man City Swansea odds suggesting this may be a tight affair.

The Premier League champions Manchester City can’t afford another slip up when they host the Welsh side on Saturday.

Manchester City could only manage a 2-2 draw away to Queens Park Rangers before the international break.

Sergio Aguero twice rescued Manuel Pellegrini’s men, cancelling out a Charlie Austin effort and an own goal from Martin Demichelis.

The dropped points mean City are already eight points off the early pacesetters in Chelsea, who have made an excellent start to the season.

Swansea City recovered from a goal down to beat Arsenal and continue their own good form last time out.

Alexis Sanchez opened the scoring after good work from Danny Welbeck, however the Gunners once again dropped points.

Gylfi Sigurdsson levelled with a superb free-kick, before the impressive Jefferson Montero crossed for Bafetimbi Gomis who scored the winner.

Manchester City have won all three previous Premier League home games against Swansea City without conceding in the process.

Pellegrini’s men did the double over Swansea on route to the title, including a 3-0 victory at the Etihad.

Team news
Vincent Kompany is unlikely to be fit in time to face Swansea, meaning Demichelis will again partner Eliaquim Mangala in defence.

David Silva is another out injured, which could see Yaya Toure pushed further forward in support of Aguero.

Stevan Jovetic and Samir Nasri will compete for the left wing role in the side, whilst Jesus Navas will start on the opposite flank.

Jonjo Shelvey will return from suspension for the trip to the Etihad, having missed the win over Arsenal.

The Argentine defender Federico Fernandez is an injury doubt and Kyle Bartley looks set to keep his spot in the side.

Wayne Routledge could return for Marvin Emnes, whilst Wilfried Bony looks set to keep Gomis out of the side.

Manchester City: Hart; Zabaleta, Demichelis, Mangala, Clichy; Fernando, Fernandinho; Navas, Toure, Nasri; Aguero
Swansea: Fabianski; Rangel, Williams, Bartley, Taylor; Ki, Shelvey; Montero, Sigurdsson, Routledge; Bony
