Man City To Face Swansea As EPL Champions

Collins Ndlovu:

Johannesburg: Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola is likely to rotate his squad after winning the English Premier League for 2017/2018.

Pep Guardiola may look to rotate his side in the final five games of the Premier League season, now Manchester City has been confirmed as champions, but he may well field a strong side for Sunday’s game against Swansea City.

Several players still need to make a handful appearance to be classed as part of the title-winning team.

Meanwhile, Guardiola will be determined to give City fans something to celebrate when they welcome back their heroes to the Etihad Stadium.

Sergio Aguero is likely to miss the rest of the season with a knee injury, while Benjamin Mendy is still working towards full match fitness following his long lay-off.

It is expected that Yaya Toure could be handed a start in midfield given that Fernandinho is suspended but it makes more sense to start Ilkay Gundogan and bring Toure off the bench later on, for sentimental reasons, even if the title is already won.

The game will be played on Sunday  22 April 2018 at Etihad Stadium, 17:30 CAT
