MATCH PREVIEW: Swans v Manchester City

15th May 2016

Swansea City are aiming for a fifth straight home win when they face Manchester City on Sunday (3pm).
The Swans welcome Manuel Pellegrini's side to SA1 as the Barclays Premier League season comes to an end.
Francesco Guidolin - who signed a new two-year contract this week - will be hoping his side to end the campaign on a high following back-to-back wins over Liverpool and West Ham.
Those results have seen the Swans climb to 11th in the table and they now go in search of a fifth straight home win at the Liberty.
Manchester City, meanwhile, know a positive result in south west Wales will be enough to secure Champions League football next season as Manuel Pellegrini's takes charge for the final time before departing the club this summer.

Swans boss Francesco Guidolin: "Next season 40 points is the priority and, if it's possible, to play well. It's important not to lose this, or to lose our identity.
"This season could be a lesson for the future because for Swansea in the last 10 years, every year has been up, up, up.
"In football it's not always easy to go up. It's important to have a season that's a little bit complicated to understand and learn new things."

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini: "During the three seasons, the fans always tell me that they enjoy our games.
"It's about a style, and for me it's important to be the highest-scoring team for three seasons, to be always in the Champions League and to win three titles."
