MATCH PREVIEW: Swans v Manchester City

17th May

The Swans go in search of a fourth straight league win when they face Manchester City on Sunday (1.30pm).
Garry Monk's side welcome Manuel Pellegrini's charges to the Liberty Stadium on the back of three straight wins in the Barclays Premier League.
Victories over Newcastle and Stoke were followed up by last Monday's memorable win at Arsenal - a result that moved Swansea to within two points of sixth place.
Manchester City, meanwhile, are looking to finish the campaign in second place ahead of Arsenal after four straight wins.
A thumping 6-0 victory over QPR last weekend saw City move three points ahead of Arsenal, while the Gunners have a game in hand.

Swans boss Garry Monk: "We've been excellent this season. There have been some great performances this year and it's got us to where we are now.
"Sunday will be our last home game of a long season and I think it's a good one for us. Our fans always get excited watching these kinds of matches and we want to make them proud once again."

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini: "We want to finish as near the top of the table as we can.
"We have had the pressure for the whole year and we played very well in December. We were at the top of the table and we had qualified for the next stage of the Champions League.
"We made some mistakes when we finished the season and that is why we were not involved in the title."
