Swansea City 0

Manchester City 4

Manchester City skipper David Silva scored twice to help runaway Barclays Premier League leaders to a comfortable victory against rock bottom Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.

The visitors had too much quality and class for the struggling Swans to cope with, and the score line could even have read a lot worse for Paul Clement's men, but for outstanding goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski pulling off a string of saves on the night.

Manchester City skipper David Silva scored the opener, and Kevin De Bruyne fired in a free kick to give them a 2-0 cushion at half time. Shortly after the break Silva grabbed his second and Sergio Aguero added a fourth to complete the rout.

Paul Clements’ Swansea outfit came into this clash on the back of a 1-0 win against West Bromwich Albion, their first win in eight matches.

However, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City team won 2-1 against derby rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford, impressively picking up their 14th successive victory, and creating an English top-flight record.

They increased that record by picking up their 15th victory at the Liberty, and Guardiola’s City outfit were too strong in every department for their hosts.

Aguero had the visitors’ first early sight at goal, the classy striker pressing forward with some neat footwork before firing his right foot shot into the side netting, and minutes later and Fabianski pulled off a stunning save to deny Fernandinho from his low 18 yard drive.

On the ten minute mark, Swansea threatened as Jodan Ayew struck a stinging low drive that City keeper Ederson did well to stop.

Kevin De Bruyne then uncharacteristically fired a 12 yard volley high and wide.

Swans midfielder Roque Mesa showed neat skill in the middle of the park to set the Swans on a promising attack, but it came to nothing.

But it seemed a matter of time before City struck, as Bernardo Silva made good ground down the right and his cross in the box was met by Aguero - who looped a header just over Fabianski’s crossbar.

City opened the scoring in the 27th when some poor Swans defending led to Bernardo Silva crossing for skipper David Silva to score with an easy far post tap-in. Minutes later and Aguero struck a low shot that Fabianski brilliantly stopped and took a knock to the head in the process.

The visitors doubled the lead in the 34th minute when De Bruyne fired home a low curling free kick which evaded everyone and beat an unsighted Fabianski.

The Swans started the second period brightly, but struggled to find a way past the well organised City defence.

At the other end Aguero fired a low angled shot that Fabianski parried, but in the 52nd minute City added a third, Raheem Sterling intelligently threading a ball to Silva inside the box, and the City skipper delightfully lifted his shot over the advancing Swans keeper.

Then Sterling played a lovely neat one-two with Fernandinho, and the left sided midfielder struck a wicked volley from inside the box that Fabianski superbly saved.

Ederson pulled off an incredible save to deny Rogue Mesa’s pile driver which deflected off Fabian Delph as the Swans were unlucky not to get a consolation goal.

Aguero added a fourth five minutes from full time, the Argentine striker ghosting past Mawson and drilling a low shot into the far corner.
