Swansea have little to play for, having secured their Premier League status last month, but have beaten Liverpool and West Ham in their last two games scoring seven goals in the process. The Welsh team have lost their last five games against City.

It will be the final game in charge of City for manager Manuel Pellegrini, who has won three trophies in three years at the club. Critics say that is the bare minimum City should have won considering the money spent and the strength of the squad.

"I always think we can do better," Pellegrini said Thursday, "but the important thing to compare with the other teams if we make the sum of the three seasons that I was in charge here, we were the team that won most points."

Mathematically, sixth-place West Ham could still also finish fourth but it is highly unlikely, given the team are three points behind City and have an inferior goal difference of 15.
