What Trueform says for Man City vs Swansea
There will be a carnival atmosphere at Etihad Stadium as Manchester City look to celebrate being crowned Premier League champions by beating Swansea.
The Blues put a rocky week behind them when recording a convincing 3-1 victory over Tottenham at Wembley and have already thrashed the Swans 4-0 in Wales this term.
We reckon Pep Guardiola’s side will turn on the style here and they are backed at Evens to win by more than two clear goals in our Man City vs Swansea betting predictions.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
Two Champions League defeats against Liverpool and a second-half collapse in the derby loss to United had cast a cloud over Manchester City’s superb season.
However, they were back to their free-flowing best versus Spurs and were then confirmed title winners when West Brom upset the Red Devils.
City equalled the earliest time for wrapping up top spot by prevailing with five games to spare, but still have the incentive of setting more records.
They need three wins to post a new best points tally and claim the most victories in a campaign, while the total goals, best goal difference and winning margin marks are all within reach.
Guardiola said: “In the past, I won the league at Barcelona and Bayern Munich five, six or seven games before (the end) and the next games were not good. We tried to keep going but we were not able.
“Maybe to think about that – how many points we can get – can be a good argument to keep going with what we have to do.
“Of course, what we should do in the Premier League is already done, the important thing is winning the title. But maybe that can help us to be focused.”
Sergio Aguero underwent minor knee surgery earlier this week and will miss the rest of the club season.
Midfielder Fernandinho serves the second match of a two-game ban, while centre-back John Stones (adductor) remains doubtful and Benjamin Mendy (knee) is still working his way back to fitness from a long-term lay-off.
A Look At Swansea City’s Betting Odds
Swansea clawed five points clear of the drop zone when coming from behind to draw 1-1 at home to Everton, with Jordan Ayew equalising on 71 minutes.
That was Ayew’s 11th goal of the season and a point was the least City deserved after outplaying Sam Allardyce’s side for long periods at the Liberty Stadium.
“Even though we are moving slowly, it is a positive, and if we keep on playing like this we will make everyone happy,” said the striker.
Facing the newly-crowned champions is obviously a different proposition, though, and Swansea were recently outclassed by Spurs and Manchester United, conceding five goals over those two games, with none scored.
We’re finishing off our Man City vs Swansea betting tips by taking 18/5 for the hosts to be 2-0 ahead at half-time.
Swansea hope Sam Clucas will be available after a knee injury, defender Mike van der Hoorn is expected to return from a shoulder problem, but Luciano Narsingh (ankle) and Renato Sanches (hamstring) are out.
Tottenham 1-3 MAN CITY – Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gundogan (pen), Raheem Sterling
