Manchester City to win with over 3.5 goals @ 23/20 with Coral

Manchester City will have expected for their game with Swansea on Sunday to be the most important in the Premier League this season. Winning the title seemed to be nothing more than a formality for months, but they somehow choked on the chance to do it by beating closest rivals Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium two weeks ago, surrendering a two-goal lead to lose 3-2. The general consensus was that, even if City could beat Tottenham the following week, which they duly did, they would have to then beat the Swans as United were facing bottom club West Brom and were fully expected to win.

Such was the surprise when Jay Rodriguez’s second half strike handed the Baggies a win at Old Trafford, that City had no team-planned celebrations just in case. Pep Guardiola was on the golf course, knowing he would have to put together a huge plan for Carlos Carvalhal’s visit. As it is, though, it will be a party atmosphere at the Etihad and the home side will be able to play with more freedom to their game. That could either work for Swansea or go against them even more; they have seen the freedom City have played with this season as it is. We fully expect the home side to run out comfortable winners, which will mean Swansea cannot relax in their battle against relegation just yet.

Form


City avoided a historic feat under Guardiola of three straight defeats and beat Spurs, but they will want to put their home form right after that loss to United.
