Manchester City would like to continue its hunt for four trophies with a draw in the fifth round of the FA Cup in Swansea

City beat Birmingham and Cheltenham to get to this stage Swansea, the pursuer of championship promotion, has had its toughest test yet Swansea had two seasons ago against City in the Cup It took the men of Pep Guardiola a late comeback to advance at Liberty Stadium

Pep Guardiola will be without Sergio Aguero, Nathan Ake and Kevin De Bruyne again and he will likely make some changes to the team that won last Liverpool but he will be wary of Swansea’s threats and yet Build a team strong enough to make progress

Then City will face Tottenham, Everton, Arsenal, Borussia Mönchengladbach, West Ham and Manchester United The continuation of her 14-game winning streak will send her into the next month with full confidence

Swansea reminded them of their threat when they attacked after kick-off and sent a header just over the bar

Kyle Walker crosses in search of Ferran Torres, who may or may not get a touch, and the ball is in the back of the City Tour net

Screams from the town’s offside bank as Swansea comes forward Tonight there is no VAR, so each bank must do what it can to sway the officials

Ferran Torres is doing everything right, but Swansea keeper Freddie Woodman is up to his commitment. Great savings

All of those mentions that City is on track tonight to break the record by posting a 15-game winning streak across all competitions are a little off the beaten track

The Blues already hold this special record when they won the league cup 20 straight away in 2017 on the way to Pep Guardiola’s first league title win

The fact that they beat Wolves on penalties in this run bothers some, but both international lawmaker Ifab and the National Association of Football Statisticians have confirmed that a penalty shoot-out counts as a victory

City capitalizes on a loose ball from Swansea and it comes down to Ferran Torres, but the volley is not good

Aymeric Laporte sends a header back over the goal at the back post, but there is no one there. If it was a shot, it wasn’t there, if it was a pass, no one was there

Benjamin Mendy drills a low cross in the direction of Gabriel Jesus, who makes an effort unhappy

Swansea steps up behind Eric Garcia and the retreat towards Yan Dhanda is interrupted by Rodri. Good coverage

Raheem Sterling, so broad in Anfield, keeps walking in for those first few minutes and whenever he doesn’t, Guardiola yells to remind him

This gives Mendy the full flank to run down – an example of how the team adapts to different players and different opponents

Gabriel Jesus shoots at the goal from the edge of the field and forces the goalkeeper to hit it away He falls down after he seems to have twisted his ankle slightly in the process

I’m not saying it’s cold, but the City substitutes have hot water bottles to keep them warm on the bench! Hopefully they make their way to the press box

We could see an open game as Steve Cooper says his Swansea side will stick to their usual, expansive approach

They sense this would suit City, but it can also be a problem to some extent when the home team is ready to join the city’s defense

“Everyone deserves to play We have a lot of games so we’re starting with the best team we think can beat

“Swansea is always a Premier League team, has always had good managers, good players, plays well The championship is a tough league, we know anything can happen in a game We have prepared and tried as seriously as possible to win the game

“The important thing is to win the game We’ll see that we focus on winning the game We have to do that”The reality is the present and the present is good because we won a lot of games, but what we do and what we should do is important to win the game!

Pep Guardiola turns 200 tonight Earn victory as City Boss when City defeats Swansea

The manager is proud of the milestone moments and 200 wins in less than five seasons are extremely successful

The team has set a 100 percent record in this stadium under Guardiola after winning once in the league, the league cup and the FA cup

Guardiola was told yesterday how well Swansea is doing, and lower division teams that aren’t used to losing have always been a thorn in the side of City – even if their trophy record doesn’t necessarily suggest it

This is probably a more difficult game than a Premier League midfield team – mostly because it’s away – as the championship team is in a form that is simply not the case for the majority of the top teams

Another strong Guardiola team in the cup, even though Spurs are only three days away

In a way, the manager had his hand forced through injuries to Fernandinho and Kevin De Bruyne, but he could have played Tommy Doyle in place of Ilkay Gundogan who is so valuable to the blues these days

The fact that he’s played eleven frontliners and stacked the bench with teenagers suggests the idea that he has the prospect of repeating the domestic highs from two years ago – and maybe going a step further and land the unprecedented four times as much!

The last time these two teams met in the FA Cup was just two years ago when Berant Celina scored a dream goal for the Swans against his old club to create what looked like a surprise

Celina’s dip attempt brought it 2-0, but the arrival of Sergio Aguero as a substitute in the second half turned the game upside down and the Argentine ace deployed a late winner to send the Blues 3-2

Celina’s talent for possible headlines didn’t last either – he signed for the French relegation fighter Dijon

this season

Interesting to see how Claudio Gomes performed again on the City-Bank after the trip to Burnley last week This was his first in nearly three years after signing for PSG’s Blues at the age of 18

He played ONE SECOND for City, possibly the shortest appearance in the club’s history, when he played as a sub at the end of the Community Shield win over Chelsea in 2018 Since then, he’s only had four minutes to win the Cup against Fulham a month later

His transfer caused a stir in French football as he was a star in youth, but he played for the PSV youth team last season when he was on loan there

We said so in Cheltenham, but a big chance for Benjamin Mendy tonight, who has not started one of the last 10 league games – basically the entire City winning run

Laporte played well there in Burnley and Zinchenko was in great shape, so Mendy has to keep up with the competition
