Kick Off – 15.00pm Saturday 12th December 2015

Manchester City suffered a 2-0 defeat at Stoke last time out in the Premier League, as Austrian winger Marko Arnautovic scored a brace. The defeat meant that the Citizens finished the weekend third in the table, three points behind surprise league leaders Leicester City.
Despite that defeat last time out City will be confident of a return to winning ways in this one, as Manuel Pellegrini’s side have had a strong home record in recent seasons. A 4-1 defeat against Liverpool in their last Premier League home game is unlikely to unsettle the City players.
Swansea’s poor run of form continued last time out, as the Welsh side suffered a 3-0 defeat against high-flying Leicester at the Liberty Stadium. Riyad Mahrez continued his good run of form, scoring a hat-trick.
The pressure is on Swans boss Garry Monk to start delivering results, as the Swans have fallen to 15th in the Premier League table and are now just one point outside the relegation zone.
