Manchester City 2-1 Swansea

Premier League - Saturday, December 12, 2015

The Swans cruelly went down to a dramatic 2-1 defeat at Manchester City after Yaya Toure's last-gasp strike deflected off team-mate Kelechi Iheanacho.
A brave performance from the Swans, being led temporarily by Alan Curtis following Garry Monk's exit days earlier, had seen sub Bafe Gomis fire home a 90th-minute equaliser at the Etihad Stadium.
But the hosts, who had led 1-0 courtesy of Wilfried Bony's first-half header, took all three points as Toure's curling effort took a deflection off sub Iheanacho before dropping into the far corner deep into stoppage time.
The visitors had the best chances throughout, with Wayne Routledge and Gylfi Sigurdsson being denied by Joe Hart on a number of occasions.

Manchester City 2-1 Swansea
Premier League - Saturday, November 22, 2014

The Swans went down to their first defeat in four games as Manchester City came from behind to win at the Etihad Stadium.
Wilfried Bony had given the Swans the perfect start with a neat finish after nine minutes - the club's first goal at the Etihad.
But Manuel Pellegrini's side were level ten minutes later as Stevan Jovetic directed Jesus Navas' cross into the net.
Fabianski then made a superb save to deny Gael Clichy, with his effort being tipped onto the post, as the Swans soaked up the pressure to go into the break on level terms.
Manchester City took the lead just past the hour as Yaya Toure latched onto Fernandinho's pass to slide home past Fabianski.
The Swans almost grabbed a point, however, as sub Bafe Gomis poked wide while fellow sub Jonjo Shelvey's free-kick was deflected just wide of the goal.
This defeat left the Swans on 18 points from 12 games.

Manchester City 1-0 Swansea
Premier League - Saturday, October 27, 2012

The Swans were denied a deserved point after Carlos Tevez's strike earned Manchester City victory in a game which saw Michel Vorm stretchered off in the remaining 30 minutes.
The Dutch keeper was injured while attempting to keep out the Argentinian's goal on the hour mark, with a suspected groin injury which could see him sidelined for around four-six weeks.
Michael Laudrup's side stood up to the Barclays Premier League champions, and left the stadium feeling they could and should have taken a point back with them to South West Wales.
Michu went close on a number of occasions, first being denied by Joe Hart after going in one-on-one with the English international in the first half just minutes after seeing a goal ruled out for offside.
Scoreless at the break, the Swans continued to hold out the hosts with their passing style and stern defence frustrating Roberto Mancini's side.
Aguero's superb strike then separated the sides, but the Swans again went close to levelling via Michu.
As it was, there was no reward for a brave effort, but the Swans - who lost 4-0 here in their first Premier League game - took home a lot of positives from their performance.

Manchester City: Joe Hart, Vincent Kompany (capt), Gael Clichy, Matija Nastasic, Alexsandar Kolarov (Mario Balotelli, ht), Micah Richards (Kolo Toure, 84), Yaya Toure, Samir Nasri, Gareth Barry, Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero (Joleon Lescott, 90+4).
Subs: Costel Pantilimon, Jack Rodwell, Scott Sinclair, Edin Dzeko.
