Newly-crowned Premier League champions Manchester City will host relegation-candidates Swansea City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
Since City have already wrapped up the title, it will be interesting to see what sort of approach Pep Guardiola takes with his team selection in the remaining games.
The Citizens come into this game following an impressive 3-1 win at Tottenham. They have lost only once at home in the league this season, and that defeat came against local rivals United in their last home game.
Irrespective of the team-selection, the Citizens should easily defeat the Swans, who have been terrible on the road.
The Welsh club have looked a decent side under Carlos Carvalhal, but they are not totally safe yet. Swansea sit in the 17th spot with 33 points, meaning they have a four-point cushion on Southampton and a game in hand.
Swansea are without a win in their last four games, and they have drawn their last two. Last weekend, they played a 1-1 draw with Everton at the Liberty Stadium.
For now, the Swans look safe in the relegation battle, but things can change quickly. Their last two games of the season are against Southampton and Stoke City, and they would prefer to have secured their survival by then.
Earlier in the season, City thrashed their opponents 4-0 at the Liberty Stadium. David Silva got a brace, and Kevin de Bryune and Sergio Aguero scored one goal each.
