Manchester City travel to Liberty Park to take on an in-form Swansea City side who guaranteed their safety after impressive run of results in recent weeks. With League title and relegation spots already been decided, top-4 battle is all what is left to play for.
Ahead of the game at Liberty Park, we take a look at three key questions which ought to be answered when Manchester City take on Swansea City.
Will Swansea field a weakened side?
Francesco Guidolin was an unknown quantity before arriving at Swansea, however, in a short span of time he has made a reputation for himself and board are responding to his decisions. One such decision could be to field a weakened team against Man City after securing their safety for the season.
Guidolin would not want any injured players on last day of the season and his decision would make sense for the Welsh side. Manchester City would not mind that, but I wonder if Manchester United will be alright with this decision as United need City to lose their game in order to qualify for the Champions League.
Will Pellegrini bow out on a high?
The send-off Manuel Pellegrini got after his last game at the Etihad was nothing short of appalling. Fans left within minutes of the final whistle, and the manager did his lap of honor in front of a half empty stadium.
This Sunday, we will see Pellegrini in charge of his final Man City game and given the work he has done with the club, he deserves to go out on a high then be it from the result point of view or a warm send-off from the fans.
The final top-4 standings
Whatever happens at the Liberty Park, we for sure will know the final top-4 standing as the season is coming to a close this Sunday. City just need a draw to ensure their top-4 status regardless of Manchester United’s result.
City would be clear of United even in case of a draw on virtue of goal difference. Incoming manager Pep Guardiola would be keen on the result as it will have a huge impact on his first year in charge at The Etihad.
