Swansea City v Manchester City

15th March 2019, 15:59 by James Mason

Swansea will be looking to cause an upset when Manchester City travel to the Liberty Stadium on Saturday for FA Cup action.

Swansea's chances of earning promotion back to the Premier League look bleak this season and they head into Saturday's contest in poor form, having lost back-to-back matches against Norwich City and West Brom.

However, Graham Potter's men have been impressive on home soil and a 2-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers extended their unbeaten run at the Liberty Stadium to seven matches in all competitions.

Top scorer Oli McBurnie has been struggling with illness so is unlikely to start. Cameron Carter-Vickers should have shaken off a knock in time for the contest but Kyle Naughton is an injury doubt.

City thumped Schalke 7-0 last time out, booking their spot in the Champions League quarter-finals with a 10-2 aggregate win, and the visitors have won 10 consecutive games in all competitions.

The Citizens have won 18 of their 19 matches - the only blemish a 3-2 defeat to Crystal Palace - and they have triumphed in their last five away outings, scoring 10 goals in those victories.

Pep Guardiola will be without defender John Stones, who has not yet fully recovered from a groin strain, whilst Kevin De Bruyne and Vincent Kompany are also still sidelined.

City have won 10 of the past 11 meetings in all competitions against Swansea, whilst the English outfit won the two league encounters last season by an aggregate score of 9-0.
