Swansea City’s Liberty Stadium hosts the first of a double header between the Swans and Manchester City this evening. First up is an EFL Cup third round tie, ahead of the weekend clash in the Premier League.
Both teams have rotated their squad tonight with an eye on Saturday’s match in the same stadium. Vincent Kompany makes his long awaited return at the heart of the defence, while there are also starts for Leroy Sané and Aleix Garcia. Spanish wonderkid Brahim Diaz is on the bench.
Tonight’s referee is Keith Stroud and here are the starting lineups for City and hosts Swansea:
Swansea XI: Nordfeldt, Naughton, Rangel, Amat, van der Hoorn, Taylor, Fulton, Britton, Cork, Routledge, Baston
City XI: Caballero, Zabaleta, Kompany, Stones, Clichy, Fernando, Garcia, Navas, Angelino, Sané, Iheanacho
