What is the team news?

CITY skipper Vincent Kompany left the derby at half-time and looks set to miss more time.

Nicolas Otamendi and Eliaquim Mangala are the only fit centre-half’s still available to Guardiola, who has John Stones out.

Swansea picked up no injuries during the West Brom win, as Kyle Bartley remains their only player unavailable.

Stat attack

  • Swansea City have won just one of their last 15 games in all competitions against Man City (D2 L12), beating them 1-0 in March 2012.
  • Manchester City have won 75% of their Premier League games against Swansea (9/12), their best win rate against a specific opponent they’ve faced more than five times in the competition.
  • The first two Premier League meetings between these sides at the Liberty Stadium produced just one goal – the subsequent four have seen both sides score each time, producing a total of 17 goals (4.3 per game).
  • Manchester City have won their last 14 Premier League games in a row. This is the English top-flight record within a single season.
  • Manchester City’s next aim is to win their 15 th successive top-flight league game in a row, which would be the most ever in England, beating Arsenal’s 14-game run between February and August 2002.
  • Manchester City have won 46 points after 16 games this season – that points tally would have been enough to secure 8 th position in the Premier League at the end of 2016-17.
  • Swansea have the exact same record after 16 games this season as they did in 2016-17 – W3 D3 L10, winning 12 points. However, at this stage last season 54 goals had been scored in their matches while they have only seen 27 this season – half the tally.
  • Kevin De Bruyne has assisted 17 goals in the Premier League in 2017 – the only players with more within a single Premier League calendar year are Mesut Ozil (20 in 2015) and Thierry Henry (19 in 2003).
  • Wilfried Bony has scored in his last two Premier League games & will be looking to score in three in a row for the first time since October 2014. The Ivorian scored just six goals in 36 Premier League appearances for Manchester City before re-joining Swansea in August.
  • Yaya Toure has been involved in more Premier League goals against Swansea than he has versus any other opponent in the competition (seven; four goals, three assists).
