Life in south Wales is starting to become nervy for Italian boss Francesco Guidolin in light of the rumours suggesting a potential managerial change at the Liberty Stadium, a less than ideal condition to be found in when hosting rampant league leaders Manchester City.

Of course, Saturday’s showdown against Pep Guardiola’s men could prove to be the idyllic turnaround for the ex-Udinese boss, but with just four points gained from a possible 15 this season, coupled with the reported unrest of his own players, the odds are firmly stacked against the Swans.

If Man City’s squad selection in this week’s league cup clash against Swansea is anything to go by, the in-form Kelechi Iheanacho could make way for the previously suspended Sergio Agüero after featuring on Wednesday night, which spells danger for the hosts’ slim hopes.

Despite failing to score in each of his last four visits to the Liberty Stadium, the Argentine striker has a ratio of a goal a game in the league this season, whereas his last outing saw him hit a hat-trick against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the Champions League, his second treble already this season.
