SWANSEA – MANCHESTER CITY
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City is looking like the team to beat in the English Premier League since the start of the new season. The Citizens won all of the their first five games in the league and they are currently alone on the top with a full active of 15 points.
The Spanish manager took over at Manchester City after the end of the last season and he rapidly managed to improve The Blues, transforming them into a fearful side once again. Guardiola’s City is showing the best football in the Premier League so far, so don’t be surprised if you see them on top for a long time since now.
But that’s the big enjoyment of the Premier League – you never know how and when the situation could change. It’s true that City’s start of the new campaign is amazing, but it’s a long season ahead, so we still can’t know how the table would look like in May. We should wait and see.
Manchester City will be once again without their best striker Sergio Aguero, who was suspended for three games after the home win against West Ham. In Aguero’s absence, City’s attack could be once again led by the young Nigerian forward Kelechi Iheanacho, who is showing a great promise with his performances lately.
It’s curious that Swansea and Manchester City will play for a second time in just a few days of time. The two sides met in Wednesday for the League Cup with Manchester City winning 2-1 at the Liberty Stadium. But you should take a note that both teams played their reserve teams in this game, so right now you should expect to see a totally different match.
Can Manchester City enjoy a sixth win in a row and continue to be alone on the top of table? Or Swansea could once again steal some points from the big sharks, just like they did against Chelsea? We will find out very soon.
