Manchester City are unbeaten in their last 10 matches and have won nine of them, with one being the draw with Chelsea in the League Cup final, which they went on to win on post match penalties. They head to this game on the back of a 7 – 0 win over Schalke in the Champions League and in their last 19 matches, they have only lost to Newcastle United. Apart from that loss and the draw with Chelsea in the League Cup, all the other matches in the last 19 have ended in wins. They are unbeaten in their last five away matches. In the FA Cup they have two losses and nine wins in the last 12 matches. On the flip side, Swansea are struggling and in the second tier they are not even in the picture for promotion as they are 15th and have lost more matches than they have won. It will be a tough task for them to make it past this hurdle. Swansea have two wins in the last five matches but are unbeaten in the last seven home matches and in the FA Cup they have five wins in six matches played at home. Manchester City have not lost to Swansea in the last 13 meetings, while the last five meetings between the two sides have yielded over 2.5 goals. Head to head, in 19 meetings, Swansea have three wins and City 14.
