Live: Swansea 0 Manchester City 0

Full Time. That's it. It ends goalless. A decent game but a lack of cutting edge was the problem with neither team desperate for the points.

90+2
Dzeko heads on goal but Vorm saves down low. The striker could not get the pace on the ball.

90
Swansea pushing for the winner down the right flank but Nastasic clears.

87
Tiendalli on for Dyer.

86
Rodwell on for Silva.

85
Chance! Now the ball breaks for Silva after Dzeko's shot is blocked but the Spaniard misses the target with a sidefooted effort. Should have scored.

84
Chance! Zabaleta does brilliantly to get to the byline and cut the ball back for Dzeko but the Bosnian striker misses the target from close range. Awful miss, really.

82
Silva whips in a free-kick but Swansea clear.

80
Tevez on for Aguero.

78
De Guzman curls the free-kick over the bar. Poor effort.

76
Dyer shows some urgency and wins a free-kick in a good position.

76
Silva with the cross but Vorm claims.

76
Corner to Man City after Davies puts the ball behind.

75
So little incision for either team this could well end goalless.

72
Milner attempts a lofted through-ball to Aguero but the striker is offside.

71
Dzeko curls a long-range effort wide of the post.

70
Moore on for Michu.

69
Hernandez dispossesses former Valencia team-mate Silva inside the Swansea box.

68
Man City really are camped in the Swansea half without enjoying any clear chances.

67
Dyer and Agustien almost play themselves into trouble inside their own area but Chico clears the danger.

65
That switch reflects the fact that, curiously, Man City are dominating the midfield far more following the withdrawal of Toure at the interval.

65
Agustien on for Routledge.

64
Hernandez cuts inside from the left but fires a shot over the bar.

64
Silva with a neat turn before squaring the ball to Milner but the midfielder is dispossessed on the edge of the Swansea area.

62
Penalty appeal! Dzeko skips past his marker inside the area and goes down. Chico with the apparent foul. That surely gets given anywhere else on the field.

61
Man City dominating possession for now without breaching the Swansea back-line.

59
Swansea restricted to playing on the break now.

58
Aguero looks to have fouled Davies but nothing given. Aguero seems frustrated.

56
Aguero tries to dribble his way through the Swansea defence but eventually commits the foul himself.

54
Silva with a sharp cross from the left and Williams puts the ball behind for a corner.

53
Michu gets away and is clear on goal but the flag is up.

53
Better control for the visitors now.

52
Mancini's men taking the sting out of things with some patient build-up.

49
De Guzman takes but Man City clear and break through Silva. He and Dzeko trade passes and then Silva spots Aguero on the overlap but the Argentine forward cannot control and the ball runs out of play for a goal-kick.

48
Brilliant crossfield ball from Dyer to Routledge and Swansea have a corner.

48
But the ball is soon back with Hart.

47
Nastasic with a low diagonal cross and Williams concedes a cheap corner.

46
Man City kick-off.

46
Dzeko on for Toure

Half Time. Chances for both teams with Swansea the brighter of the two but it is goalless at the break.

45
Williams with a challenge from behind on Aguero. Fortunate to avoid a booking.

43
Chance! Aguero with a superb turn before Silva nicks the ball off his toe only to see his shot blocked by Williams. The ball falls to Aguero finally but this time Vorm is off his line well to smother the shot.

41
Silva with an angled cross after good work from Nasri but the ball is flighted over Clichy and out of play for a goal-kick.

39
Penalty claim! Michu collects a diagonal ball and brings it down well but Nastasic blocks him off with a high boot. Clumsy from the City defender and that looked a penalty. The referee waves away the appeals.

38
Better from City and they have several chances to get a shot in before Nasri sees an effort blocked.

35
Chance! Another lovely pass from Barry gets the ball in behind the Swansea defence and Nasri can volley goalwards over his shoulder from close range but only finds Vorm.

35
Barry with a clever ball forward to Aguero but it is all a bit pedestrian from the away side. Very little urgency in their build-up play.

33
More good football from Swansea as Routledge exploits the space to find Hernandez in the left channel. But the winger cuts inside onto his stronger right foot and only finds trouble before being crowded out.

31
Excellent work from Davies gets Swansea on the attack and then a great turn by Dyer appears to have drawn the handball from Nastasic but the referee turns down the appeals.

30
More possession from City now but they aren't getting too near to the Swansea goal.

28
Swansea break through Dyer and the eventual shot comes in from Routledge but the strike is straight at Hart.

27
Toure tries to get City going with a couple of forward passes but the visitors are struggling to get Aguero into the game.

26
Ball comes out to Britton but his touch is poor and he commits the foul when stretching.

25
Hart gets a touch under pressure. Another corner.

25
Corner to Swansea.

24
City enjoying a little more possession now. They've hardly got started.

23
Space opens up for Routledge in a central position but he runs into trouble.

22
Foul on Hernandez by Nastasic. Delay for treatment.

21
Yaya Toure shot blocked by Williams.

20
Chance! Dyer dinks the ball towards Michu and the striker just needs to sidefoot volley it home from six-yards out but it skews wide. Great opportunity.

20
Corner comes to nothing although Swansea retain possession.

19
Routledge plays a neat one-two with Michu and is in behind the City defence but cannot control the return pass. Corner.

18
Chance! Rangel sucks in Clichy before playing the ball into Dyer in the space behind. The winger cuts the cross back to Hernandez but he lofts a weak shot over the bar.

16
Clichy and Milner combine but the low cross from the latter is blocked.

15
Hernandez skins Zabaleta but spoons the cross out of play on his weaker left foot.

15
Britton with a rare long pass to Michu and the striker beats Kompany in the air. If he'd stayed on his feet, the loose ball was there for him but the big Spaniard fell to the floor.

14
Both sides looking capable of causing problems but no chances just yet.

13
Routledge has the chance to play in Dyer but tries to loop the pass when a drilled ball would've found the target.

12
Bright work from Aguero but the one-two with Nasri is intercepted.

11
Routledge with a poor cross from the right that curls out of play.

10
Swansea have the chance to break but it comes to nothing.

9
City afforded far too much space in the Swansea box and are allowed to pass the ball between the defenders before Barry sees a tame shot blocked.

8
Milner with a high challenge on De Guzman but gets away without a booking.

7
Nasri gets in a shot from the edge of the box as a result of that corner but it's over the bar.

6
Another good run from Barry finds Milner and Chico is forced to concede a corner, almost putting the ball past his goalkeeper in the process.

6
Barry finds Silva but he is dispossessed quickly enough.

5
Michu has the chance to stretch his legs with a run down the left channel but he is well tracked and ushered away from goal.

5
Confident start from the home team and there's a good tempo to the game.

4
Dyer with a purposeful run down the right but his cut-back is behind Routledge.

3
The ball is soon back with Vorm as the home side elect to retain possession.

2
Swansea break through Hernandez and good link-up play between Routledge and Davies wins a throw-in.

2
Foul on Zabaleta and first attack for City.

1
Swansea open with some trademark possession football before Davies drives down the left only to see his cross intercepted.

1
Swansea kick-off and we are underway.

Thanks for your feedback. The players are in the tunnel and will be out on the pitch shortly.

Ian says: "Greetings from Mallorca. This one is gonna be a tough one for my beloved Blues, I think they will edge this one 1-2 with goals from Yaya & Milner."

Swansea defender Ashley Williams has been linked with a move in the summer and it's easy to see why. Williams has made the most clearances (362) and the most blocks (47) in the Premier League this term.

In contrast, Michu has scored a higher percentage of his team's goals than any other player in the top-flight this term (39%).

City are one of only two teams (with Arsenal) to have three players in double figures for PL goals this season (Aguero, Dzeko, Tevez).

The goals have been shared around for City this season with Samir Nasri coming to the fore of late. Nasri has made four assists in his last five league games while he has either scored or assisted four goals in his last four games (in all competitions).

Swansea have a reputation for the short-passing game but Man City have played the highest percentage of short passes in the top-flight this season (92%).

"Hi everyone, I feel if Swansea sit back then they will be hammered but with a bit of bravery I honestly see them winning 2-0, maybe even 3-0... from Ceasor all the way from Botswana."

But Michael Laudrup's men have won only one of their seven league games since winning the Capital One Cup (D2 L4).

Indeed, the Swans have won four and lost just one of their last six home league meetings with the Citizens.

A good omen for Swansea. All three Premier League meetings between Swansea and Man City have seen the home side win whilst keeping a clean sheet.

Swansea: Vorm, Rangel, Chico, Williams (c), Davies, Britton, de Guzman, Routledge, Dyer, Hernandez, Michu. Subs: Tremmel, Tiendalli, Monk, Taylor, Agustien, Shechter, Moore.

Man City: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany (c), Clichy, Nastasic, Toure, Milner, Nasri, Barry, Silva, Aguero. Subs: Pantilimon, Toure, Kolarov, Garcia, Rodwell, Tevez, Dzeko.

Mail Box

Do City Really Need To Expand Their Stadium?

That's the question posed by one Man United fan in the mailbox after seeing the empty seats at the Etihad last night. Sadly, there isn't a single mail from a City supporter...

We have the last of these as well as mails on Liverpool, Wayne Rooney, QPR, Arsenal's injuries and more. It's a mailbox that's Alonso rather than Rafael, if you will...
