Preview

City are in fine form heading in to this FA Cup clash, amassing an unbeaten run of 21 matches, and a winning streak of 14 in all competitions.

The Swans sit third in the Championship, a single point off top spot, are unbeaten since mid-December and triumphed over league leaders Norwich City 2-0 in their last outing.

It should be a great match as both look to win and advance on to the next round.

Team News

For Man City, Sergio Aguero, Natahan Ake and Kevin De Bruyne are out. Kyle Walker is questionable after missing the weekends match v Liverpool.

Swansea will see Korey Smith as questionable, while new signing Paul Arriola could also be in contention to play. Goalkeeper Ben Hamer is cup-tied and will be unavailable.

Prediction

Manchester City 2-0 Swansea City
