Guardiola’s men have won 14 of our last 15 matches, a run stretching back to October, with our only defeat on an otherwise perfect record a slender 2-1 defeat to RB Leipzig in our final Champions League group game. Borrell will be in for Pep who tested positive for COVID alongside 7 players.
Swindon currently sit fifth in League Two, claiming their first victory since late November with an emphatic 5-2 triumph over Northampton on New Year’s Day.
It should be a very interesting match as both look to win and advance on to the next round. City’s covid impact could see a very different lineup than usual.
For Man City, Zinchenko, Stones, Foden and Mahrez are out.
Swindon will see no major injuries.
Manchester City 2-0 Swindon
