Swansea vs Manchester City Prediction & Match Preview

Swansea vs Manchester City
England FA Cup
Date: Wednesday, 10 February 2021
Kick-Off at 17.30 UK
Venue: Liberty Stadium.

All eyes will be on Liberty Stadium when Swansea City and Manchester City square off against each other in the FA Cup last 16. 

The Swans aim to build on back-to-back Championship wins over Rotherham United and Norwich City, but they face an uphill task in Wednesday’s showdown. 

Since Swansea City boss Steve Cooper is likely to stick to his rotation policy in the FA Cup, home win should not be considered.

The Citizens, on the other hand, moved one step closer to regaining the Premier League trophy thanks to a splendid 4-1 win at Liverpool. 

Pep Guardiola’s men look unstoppable in 2021, and regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting XI, away win should be considered. 

Both Kevin de Bruyne and Sergio Aguero remain on the sidelines, while Kyle Walker will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
