Furthermore, Manchester city won 7 times in 10 of this same encounter, compared to Swansea’s 1.
Swansea vs Manchester City: Prediction
The swans are unlucky to be encountering a consistent and free flowing City at this time. The Swans have gone 4 straight games without a win, while City have gone 9 straight games without dropping points.
Therefore, with the blues producing great result so far this season and going into this game with a good statistics against their Saturday opponent, I will be predicting a straight win for Manchester City.
