Manuel Pellegrini: ““Normally in England, some years ago, there was more patience with managers. Garry Monk had a great season last season, now he’s sacked because they lost two or three in a row. For every team, in opinion, they would play better if they stick with the same manager."
Wilfried Bony: "“It’s difficult to see Swansea struggling because they are the club that brought me to England and allowed me to establish myself in the Premier League and win a move to City so I will always have respect for the club and their fans."
Alan Curtis (Swansea caretaker manager): "Yes, we are on a bad run, but we won't be going to the Etihad just to make up the numbers and get the fixture out of the way while we wait for a new manager to come in. We need every point we can get and we will strive to be competitive and get something out of a difficult game."
Out (City): Aguero, Fernando, Kompany, Nasri, Zabaleta
Out (Swansea): Eder (doubtful), Tabanou (out)
