Manchester City will look to strengthen their grip at the top of the Premier League when they travel to Swansea on Sunday, with Ladbrokes offering 11/8 that Roberto Mancini’s men will win with a one goal handicap.
Will that price attract punters?
The Welsh outfit, however, have impressed in their first season in the Premier League, and will be hoping their strong home record will help them to get something out of this one.
Many expected Brendan Rodgers’ side to struggle in the top flight, with very few of their players having any experience at Premier League level.
But they have surprised many of their doubters with a flowing, attractive brand of passing football that has seen them pick up many admirers as well as points.

Currently sitting in 14th place on 33 points, they find themselves 11 points clear of the bottom three, and edging ever closer to the 38 point mark that usually ensures Premier League survival for clubs.
Manchester City may well be the best side to arrive at the Liberty Stadium this season, though, with their expensively assembled squad possessing both incredible quality and strength in depth.
Although their record away from home in the Premier League is not as invincible as their home form, a total of just three losses on the road has helped them to maintain their position at the top of the table for much of the season.
When these two sides met at the Etihad Stadium earlier on in the campaign, it turned out to be something of a comfortable result for the Mancunians.
Despite a courageous effort from the visitors, they were hammered 4-0 by City, with Sergio Aguero coming of the bench to score twice on his debut for the club.
It was the first time since 1984 that the two sides had faced each other, with Manchester City completing a league double over Swansea back then.
Overall, it has been a fixture that Manchester City have had the upper hand in down the years, winning 13, losing six and drawing just twice.
With the pressure on, it all sets up what should be an exciting encounter from 2pm on Sunday afternoon.
