Manchester City vs Swansea Preview

Manchester City vs Swansea Preview

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero will be out of action for up to five weeks but he should be ready for the World Cup with Argentina, manager Pep Guardiola said on Friday.

As such, City's players seemingly have no chance of escaping Guardiola's critical glare next season, with their manager chuckling about how "our relationship will not be so friendly as this season" when discussing the threat of complacency that faces all champions. It also depends on my energy and my strength to keep going.

"We are going to speak with the club at the end of the season", said Guardiola. Now I feel good. We will speak with Txiki [Begiristain], Ferran [Soriano] and Khaldoon [Al Mubarak]. "Now we are the champions and everybody is happy but immediately you can lose that feeling".

"We have an incredible group of guys but you can lose it".

"Football changes in nothing". But you can lose that, you can drop it. In these next five games we will see how we react to success.

"I don't know even how I am going to react after winning the Premier League".

Chinese club 'positive' of signing Iniesta
Iniesta has played for the club through its youth ranks since 1996, and has made over 650 first-team appearances over 16 seasons. Lizhang made headlines in England a year ago by hiring Tony Adams as manager of Granada, a Spanish football club he owns.

The 29-year-old, who has scored 21 English Premier League goals for Manchester City this season, is recovering from knee surgery having not started a match for the last six weeks.

He said: "In the past I won the league at Barcelona and Bayern Munich five, six or seven games before (the end) and the next five or six games were not good".

Such has been City's dominance this season that new best marks for most wins, most goals and most points in a Premier League season are within their reach. Maybe to think about that, how many points we can get, is a good argument to keep going. Having not won any of their last five games, they sit just four points above the drop zone and face an extremely hard challenge in visiting the Etihad Stadium.

Swansea may pose something of a hard task as a win would really put them clear of the chasing pack down in the relegation zone.

For Swansea, Mike van der Hoorn failed to overcome a shoulder injury last weekend and Luciano Narsingh was forced off at half-time, with Sam Clucas also facing a late fitness test. Renato Sanches has returned to the club and should play again this season, but will not expected to feature against City.
