City face Swansea tomorrow, which is the first game since the blues were confirmed champions of England for the fifth time in their history. What can we expect from the game?

Goals

Well, at least one anyway. City have never failed to score at least one goal in a home game against the Swans. On top of that, City have scored in every home league game this season and the only time a team has stopped the blues from scoring was a 0-0 draw with Wolves in the League Cup, which City won on penalties.

A Party Atmosphere

No doubt blues fans will be in the mood to continue the celebrations which started at around 1745 last Sunday and are yet to cease. This is the first time City fans have seen their team in action since being confirmed as Champions and the team will want to show them exactly why they are champions.

A Guard Of Honour

This is not a compulsory, just a nice gesture to make and Swansea will give the City a guard of honour as they enter the pitch tomorrow. Swans manager Carlos Carvalhal has said his team are proud to give the ovation to the blues as they deserve to be champions and are the best team in the competition.

Thoughts

Swansea will be in need of the points in their battle against relegation. They will try to stop City and probably out everyone behind the ball and soak up the pressure. But I think the blues will have too much for the relegation threatened side, but even if City win I think Swansea will survive this year.

Prediction

I can’t see anything other than a City win and if they’re in the mood, City may comfortably brush the Swans aside.

City 4-0 Swansea
