The hosts are currently enjoying a stunning ten-game unbeaten run in all competitions.
That form has seen them climb to third in the Championship table, one point off Brentford in second and just two behind leaders Norwich. Swansea’s latest victory was a 2-0 win over the Canaries on Friday night.
Unfortunately for Steve Cooper’s men, they come up against a Man City side who are also on a hugely impressive run. The Manchester outfit have now gone 21 games in all competitions without a loss. They eased past Premier League champions Liverpool 4-1 in their most recent fixture.
The Swans have enjoyed a smooth run in this season’s FA Cup. They defeated Stevenage 2-0 in the third-round, with Wayne Routledge and Viktor Gyokeres finding the net.
They then eased past fellow Championship side Nottingham Forest in round four. Liam Cullen and Matt Grimes both scored braces, with Oli Cooper also netting in the 5-1 rout.
Pep Guardiola’s side meanwhile have also made it through to this stage with little opposition.
The Premier League club overcame Birmingham 3-0 in round three thanks to Bernardo Silva (2) and Phil Foden. Foden was again on the scoresheet in the 3-1 fourth-round defeat of Cheltenham, with Gabriel Jesus and Ferran Torress also scoring.
Man City’s next three games after the FA Cup tie come against Tottenham, Everton and Arsenal, so boss Guardiola can be expected to make a host of changes for Wednesday’s match. Several youngsters will more than likely be given a chance against the Championship club.
But the visitors remain strong favourites at 1/4 to win the game, regardless of which XI Guardiola opts for. A draw is currently available at 6/1.
The home side are currently 15/1 to cause a major upset and win the tie.
The clubs last met in the FA Cup quarter-final in March 2019, with Man City needing a late Sergio Aguero strike to win the game 3-2.
Guardiola meanwhile has won 18 of his 21 matches in the competition. He will look to improve on that record on Wednesday.
