Sergio Aguero: Manchester City striker in good run of form

Swansea City can achieve a Premier League first since 1994 when they host Manchester City at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.

Team news

Swansea will rest all four of their Euro 2016 representatives in the final game of the season.

Ashley Williams, Neil Taylor and Gylfi Sigurdsson all missed last weekend’s 4-1 win at West Ham, and Poland goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski joins them in getting a breather ahead of this summer’s European Championship in France.

Sweden goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt will make his Premier League debut in a Swansea side also set to be without Jefferson Montero and Alberto Paloschi (both hamstrings) again.

Manchester City left-back Aleksandar Kolarov faces a fitness test ahead of the game after missing last weekend’s draw with Arsenal with a muscular injury.

Vincent Kompany (thigh), David Silva (hamstring) and Pablo Zabaleta (calf) are all definitely missing, but Samir Nasri is back in contention after recovering from the illness which prevented him playing a full part in training last week.
