Comments:

League position: 1st Manchester City had now won 14 of their last 16 Premier League home games (lost two). Wilfried Bony had now scored five goals in the last four Premier League meetings between these teams (three for Swansea City and two for Manchester City). City had now kept just two clean sheets in their last 11 Premier League games. Kelechi Iheanacho deflected a Yaya Toure shot into the net in the second minute of added time at the end of the game for the winning goal.

Comments:

League position: 16th Alan Curtis was in caretaker charge for this game following the sacking of manager Garry Monk earlier in the week. Swansea City had now lost five of their last six Premier League games and won just one of their last nine Premier League away games (lost six). They had now not kept a clean sheet in their last ten Premier League games; the worst such current run in the division. Bafetimbi Gomis scored in the final minute of normal time to equalise and end his run of 836 minutes in all competitions without a goal for the Swans.
