Mendy on bench as City make two changes

BACK: Mendy returns

BACK: Mendy returns

Benjamin Mendy has been named in the City squad for the first time in seven months.

The former Monaco left-back hasn't featured since he damaged his anterior cruciate ligament against Crystal Palace and has been sidelined ever since.

Pep Guardiola makes two changes from the side that beat Spurs 3-1 at Wembley last weekend with Danilo and Bernardo Silva starting and Kyle Walker and Leroy Sane on the bench.

Starting XI:

Ederson, Danilo, Kompany, Laporte, Delph, Gundogan, De Bruyne, D Silva, Bernardo, Sterling, G Jesus

Subs: Bravo, Foden, Walker, Sane, Yaya Toure, Mendy, Otamendi

 

RETURN: Bernardo Silva

 

 

 

Tactics

On paper, expect City to play 4-3-3 (or thereabouts) with Bernardo Silva possibly slotting on the left in place of Sane. Danilo will play right-back in place of Walker.

Swansea line-up:

 

 

Crucial for Swans...

Swansea sit just four points above the relegation zone after Southampton's point at Leicester and Stoke's 1-1 draw with Burnley.

They will know today could be their toughest remaining match so it will be fascinating to see how the Welsh side approach this game.

The last time...

 

 DEADLOCK BROKEN: David Silva's deft touch from Bernardo's cross hands City the lead.
