Manchester City eases past Swansea City 3-0 


Samir Nasri scored two second-half goals to after Alvaro Negredo netted the first gaol as Manchester City stroll past Swansea City 3-0 in an English Premier League match on Sunday night at Etihad Stadium.

The hosts took the lead within eight minutes when Alvaro Negrdo sent in a free-kick from the edge of the Swansea box past Swansea goalkeeper. Joleon Lescott and Martin Demichelis positioned themselves on the end of the Swansea wall and Negredo sent his left-footed strike through the gap left by the defensive pair into the corner of the net with Gerhard Tremmel rooted to the spot.

The visitors then reacted well to going behind with Jonjo Shelvey forcing good saves from Costel Panitlimon after two shots from outside the box within the space of five minutes.

Veteran defender Martin Demichelis came close to doubling City’s advantage when he made a great run to the front post and headed the ball towards goal from a corner but the Argentine watched his effort come back off the crossbar.

Jonathan de Guzman should have levelled in the final minute of the first half after he nutmegged Demichelis on the edge of the box to leave himself with just Pantilimon to beat but the Dutch international fired his shot well over from just eight yards out.

City started the second half brightly and Samir Nasri managed to make it 2-0 when he scored from inside the box after an excellent forward run from Toure. The Ivorian beat two Swansea players in midfield before playing a reverse pass into Nasri’s run and the Frenchman evaded Ashley Williams’ challenge and then sent the ball home.

Nasri added a third to confirm the three points with thirteen minutes left on the clock after a wonderful move from the 2011-2012 Premier League champions. James Milner played in Pablo Zabaleta on the right-hand side and the full-back pulled the ball back to Nasri who charged in to slot in his second of the afternoon.
