Match Highlights

Swansea 1-3 City: Match highlights

The best of the action from The Liberty Stadium....

What happened?

City were bright and dominant throughout the first-half.

Swansea defended deep, looking to counter-attack when they could, but City’s possession and movement meant the Welsh side were pined back in their own final third for long periods.

Gabriel Jesus went close a couple of times and Swans keeper Freddie Woodman made a superb save from Ferran Torres to ensure the hosts stayed on level terms.

Typical, then, that the opening goal should be something of a fluke, as Kyle Walker sent a bobbling low cross into the box that everyone – including the keeper – misjudged as it rolled into the far corner of the net.

It was Walker’s second goal of the campaign, but surely one of the strangest of his career.

Swansea had one or two moments where they threatened, but Zack Steffen was well protected by his defenders.

Within five minutes of the restart, City had all-but killed the game off.

First Rodri played the ball to the left where Raheem Sterling found himself in acres of space to run in on goal and he coolly placed it past Woodman on 47 minutes.

Three minutes later, Gabriel Jesus added a third with a delightful spin off former City youngster Joel Latibeaudiere and a finish to match after Bernardo had headed a deep cross back into the middle.

There were more chances, but the hosts pulled a goal back through Connor Whittaker on 77 to spoil Zack Steffen’s relatively quiet evening in South Wales.

Record-breaking City

City’s current form is now officially a new national record, eclipsing the 14 set by Arsenal and Preston North End.

It’s an incredible achievement by a group of players at the very top of their game.

It also means that we are still in the hunt for four trophies as this fascinating campaign continues to thrill and excite in equal measure.
