    Swansea City may be taking on the top team in the land right now, but that does not stop Steve Cooper making five changes to the side which beat Norwich last time out.

    Pep Guardiola makes seven changes following Manchester City's weekend win at Liverpool, with Ederson, Ruben Dias and Phil Foden among those dropping out.

    The whole back four is new, while there are also starts for the likes of Ferran Torres and Gabriel Jesus as Raheem Sterling captains the visitors.

  2. Councils will have to 'comply' with government

    The leader of Manchester City Council has said political leaders would have no choice but to comply if ministers decided to impose the most stringent tier three restrictions.

    Sir Richard Leese

    Sir Richard Leese told BBC2's Newsnight:

    Quote Message: I am hoping that we will be able to sit down again with ministers and come to an agreement which will serve the best interests of the people of Manchester.
    Quote Message: Clearly if government imposes tier three - and I hope that won't happen - we will clearly need to comply with that.

    There was anger among some of those involved in the negotiations at what they said was the use of "selective statistics" by the government to raise concern about the public health situation in the region.
