It’s no Joe Hart again for Manchester City as he sits his fourth straight Premier League match when Swansea City comes to town.
The rest of City’s lineup is business as usual, with the in-form attack partnership of Alvaro Negredo and Sergio Aguero paired up, and Samir Nasri gaining his footing as well on the wing in the absence of David Silva.
Laudrup is fearful that main striker Wilfried Bony could be out for significant time after pulling up with a hamstring problem in their Thursday loss to Valencia in the Europa League.
The blow is a massive one, considering attacking stalwort Michu is already out injured.
