Michael Laudrup: Looking to return to some form

League Cup winners Swansea will look to hit some form before the end of the season as they host Manchester City.

Since winning the Capital One Cup - the Swans have won just one match, and they are without a win in their last six appearances.

Despite their poor run of form, they still sit in ninth and do have a chance of finishing eighth - but they are now looking over their shoulders as they are just three points above Southampton in 13th.

Manchester City have the FA Cup final in their sights next weekend and some of their players may be forgiven for having the Wembley arch on their mind.

But Roberto Mancini's side are still to confirm second place and he will be looking to finish the league campaign on a high after seeing rivals Manchester United take the title from them.

Mancini will also be looking to taste success at the Liberty Stadium, as last year they went down 1-0 on their first ever visit to Swansea in the Premier League era.

Swansea  Badge Swansea

Chico Flores is an injury doubt for Swansea's clash with Manchester City.

The Spanish defender suffered bruising to his arm in training earlier this week, but Michael Laudrup is hopeful of having his first-choice centre-half available.

Winger Roland Lamah has been ruled out with a hamstring injury.

Man City Badge Man City

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart has been passed fit for the trip to Swansea.

The England international suffered a back injury in last Saturday's victory over West Ham and with Romanian Costel Pantilimon set to play in the cup final next week - he will be hoping to play this weekend.

City otherwise have no new injury worries or suspensions with striker Sergio Aguero and midfielders David Silva and James Milner having returned from hamstring problems against the Hammers.

It remains to be seen whether Mancini will play some of his squad players with one eye on next week's FA Cup final.
