PREVIEW: Swans v Manchester City

21st September 2016

The 2013 EFL Cup winners take on the current holders as the Swans host Manchester City at the Liberty tonight (7.45pm).
The all-Premier League tie sees Francesco Guidolin's side face the Premier League leaders in an intriguing content in SA1.
The Swans go into the game on the back of a disappointing defeat at Southampton last weekend, while the visitors have made a perfect start to life under Pep Guardiola - winning all eight of their games in every competition this season.
The Swans will definitely be without Alfie Mawson, who is cup-tied after featuring in the earlier rounds for Barnsley, and winger Nathan Dyer, who has undergone an ankle operation.
Record signing Borja is hopeful of a first start after making his debut at St Mary's on Sunday, while Guidolin has hinted that Neil Taylor will feature after the Welsh international was not included in the matchday squad lat time out.
Manchester City, who are back at the Liberty on Saturday for a Premier League fixture, could hand Vincent Kompany his first appearance of the season.
Fabian Delph may feature as he is fit again while youngster Brahim Diaz is expected to be part of Guardiola's squad.
Fernando and Yaya Toure, however, will definitely miss the clash at the Liberty.

Swans club captain Leon Britton: "It will be a difficult match because Manchester City have made a great start to the season. Whatever changes they make tomorrow night they will have top quality players all over the pitch."

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola: "We are going to try and win this competition - we will play some players who don't have the opportunity to play that often but we will be trying to win.
"You don't have to guess to know which titles are our priorities but we want to win this is an official game for Manchester City and we will prepare as normal and try to win this game.
"Both games against Swansea will be very different and we will plan for that."
