Manchester City v Swansea Betting Tips – Premier League 22nd April 4.30pm

Manchester City were robbed of creating the moment of winning the league through victory this match on the weekend, as Manchester United lost at home against West Brom last weekend which handed City the title in a bit of an anticlimax for Pep Guardiola’s men. Still the title is done, they can relax and there should be three points on offer for them here against the Swans who are still hovering a bit too close to the drop zone for comfort.

Manchester City News and Form

Manchester City will celebrate their league title success as they step out on home soil against Swansea on the weekend. The league is won and so they won’t have the fun of winning this game to get to the title. Steel, City produced a fantastic performance at Wembley to beat Spurs 3-1 last weekend. That was a huge response for them having lost those Champions League games against Liverpool and their last league home game against Man Utd. City’s long winning streak at home was broken with a loss against rivals Manchester United in their last home game, but that’s just part of a W14 D1 L1 record they have posted on home soil. You can imagine that the Citizens will want to put on a show here and they have averaged 3.31 goals per home game this season. So a Man City 3-0 correct score option at Betfair for 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:36 p.m. on April 16th, 2018) isn’t a bad option to consider really. City should be value to back to win to nil as they have conceded at under a goal per game on average this season. City have scored in all of their home games this season and 68% of their home goals have been in the second half of matches.

Swansea News and Form

Tough game for Swansea then given that they are still trying to secure enough points to stay up this season. Relegation concerns are still real for them and they have taken no wins in their last four league matches (D3 L1) after playing out a home draw with Everton on the weekend. The Swans have failed to win any of their last six road games in the top flight and they have only won twice on their travels this season (D6 L9) and they can’t really be expecting too much out of this one. Swansea have tallied just the eleven away goals this season and 64% of those have come in the second half of matches for them. Swansea have netted in five of their last seven away games but it hasn’t been enough to get themselves the wins that they have needed often enough. Swansea have taken only one clean sheet in their last six league games (home and away combined) so they are going to come under some heavy pressure at the Etihad. But they may at least be able to keep the game under 3.5 goals which is 8/11 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:36 p.m. on April 16th, 2018) at Betfair. They go on to face Chelsea after this one before facing three easier fixtures to round off the season with. Will they have enough in them to get safe?

Manchester City v Swansea Head to Head

There was an easy 4-0 win for City back in December when they went to the Liberty Stadium. That leaves City on a four-match winning streak against Swansea at the moment across all competitions and they are unbeaten in eleven against them. Manchester City have won all previous six home matches in the EPL against Swansea. Each of City’s last three home wins against them have been by a 2-1 scoreline. Both teams have scored in eight of the last nine clashes in all competitions.
