Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini says he expects a difficult game this evening when Swansea City travel to the Etihad Stadium.

The Premier League title holders will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing mid-week defeat against Ajax in the Champions League. They’ll also be looking to close the gap on League leaders Chelsea, who currently have a 4-point gap from their nearest rivals.

Mancini told the club’s official site:

‘Swansea are a good team, they had a fantastic season last year when they played very well,’

‘This season things have changed a bit, but they still play very well.

‘I think it will be a difficult game like all the games we have here.

‘I don’t think we have any easy games, every game is difficult for different reasons.’


Apart from the 1-1 draw against Arsenal, Manchester City have scored 3 goals in each of their home games so far this season.
