City v Swansea Scoring Chances

A look the good, and bad, from Saturday's game.

Clive Brunskill

Not a huge amount of surprise in this weeks numbers, with the key points being:

  • City outchanced Swansea 8-3 over the course of the game to take their season advantage to 96-42 over all opponents.
  • Carlos Tevez may have not been in the goals of late but he's certainly been involved in City's chances and on Saturday he added another four to his season leading total. His goal means that he joins Edin Dzeko in having now been involved in (either scoring or assisting) 50% of the City goals that he has been on the pitch for.
  • The half-time substitution certainly paid dividends with Mario Balotelli and Sergio Aguero both involved in scoring chances after the break as City looked a bigger threat from an attacking perspective.
  • City were still guilty of allowing too many errors to lead to scoring chances, but earned themselves some defensive pluses in what was a better defensive display (in which they restricted Swansea to just two shots on target.
