thumbnail Hello,

Manuel Pellegrini's men smashed six past Tottenham Hotspur last weekend and our tipster is backing the hosts to win a goal-laden encounter against the Swans on Sunday afternoon

Manchester City will look to maintain their sensational form on home soil when they welcome Michael Laudrup’s Swansea City to Etihad Stadium.

Manuel Pellegrini’s men have scored an astonishing 25 goals in their last five home matches and it is little wonder that the home side are chalked up at just 3/10 (1.30) with Coral to bag all three points against the Swans this weekend.

The visitors have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last five matches on the road and their defensive deficiencies will be a major concern for manager Michael Laudrup ahead of Sunday’s clash.

The Swans slipped to a disappointing 1-0 defeat at the hands of Valencia in midweek and are available at a chunky 9/1 (10.0) with Coral to bounce back by seeing off City here.

The draw is rated as a 4/1 (5.0) chance with the same firm.

Given City’s sensational scoring form, it is somewhat unsurprising that the home side (-1) can be backed at just 3/4 (1.75) in Coral’s handicap market while the same firm offer just 8/13 (1.62) on them to net at least three times on Sunday.

Wednesday’s hard-fought 4-2 Champions League victory over Viktoria Plzen revealed that while Manuel Pellegrini’s men are irresistible in attack, they remain vulnerable at the back, having conceded in nine of their last 12 matches in all competitions.

With that in mind, the juicy 2/1 (3.0) quote from Coral for City to win and both teams to score on Sunday looks to represent outstanding value and should be snapped up accordingly here.

Argentina international Sergio Aguero has been in tremendous form for club and country of late, scoring an astonishing 13 goals in his last 10 matches and the in-form front man can be trusted to deliver again this weekend.

Therefore, those seeking to back bigger prices should snap up Coral’s tempting 3/1 (4.0) quote for the 25-year-old to set the ball rolling for City this weekend by breaking the deadlock against the Swans on Sunday.

Both teams to score and Manchester City to win at 2/1 (3.0) 2pts stake with Coral  Sergio Aguero to score first at 3/1 (4.0) 1pt stake with Coral
