Opta Stats: Swansea v Manchester City

4May 2013

England - Premier League


There's nothing much more to play for than pride, when the Capital One Cup winners Swansea play host to the FA Cup finalists Manchester City. Opta reveals who will want it more.


All three Barclays Premier League meetings between Swansea and Man City have seen the home side win whilst keeping a clean sheet. Swansea are priced at 8.0 to win without conceding.


Swansea have won four and lost just one of their last six home league meetings with the Citizens. A Swansea win can be backed at 5.3.


Samir Nasri has made four assists in his last five league games while he has either scored or assisted four goals in his last four games (in all competitions). Nasri is 4.5 to find the net.


Swansea have won only one of their seven league games since winning the Capital One Cup (D2 L4). A Manchester City win is available at 1.78.


Excluding penalties, Swansea have scored the lowest percentage of set piece goals (11.6%) and conceded the highest (40%). You can find odds of 1.82 on both teams scoring.


The Swans are the only team in the Premier League this season yet to lose a single point with a goal conceded in the final 10 minutes. The odds on the second-half finishing 0-0 are 3.6.


Manchester City are one of only two teams (with Arsenal) to have three players in double figures for PL goals this season (Aguero, Dzeko, Tevez). Over 2.5 goals is 1.94.


Michu has scored a higher percentage of his team's goals than any other player in the top-flight this term (39%). The Spaniard is 3.4 to add to his tally.


Ashley Williams has made the most clearances (362) and the most blocks (47) in the Premier League this term. A Swansea clean sheet is priced at 6.0.
