Manchester City have won their last six home games against Swansea.

The Swans’ only league win away to City was a 2-1 victory in Division Two on 14 March 1951.

Manchester City

Edin Dzeko has scored six league and cup goals for Manchester City this term, five of which were as a substitute.

Roberto Mancini’s men are unbeaten in 33 Premier League matches at the Etihad Stadium, winning 30.

City have kept one clean sheet in their last 14 games in all competitions, conceding a total of 24 goals.

They have scored 41% of their league goals in the final 15 minutes of matches this season – the highest proportion in the top flight.

Swansea City

The Swans have only won one of their last seven away league games (W1, D1, L5).

Michu has scored six league goals from eight shots on target this season.

All but one of Swansea’s 14 league goals this season have come from open play.

CaughtOffside Prediction: 2-1. Champions scrape a home victory to get back to winning ways.
