Team News
With this being Man City's final match before the two-week international break, and having come unstuck away at lower-league opposition in Wigan Athletic last term, Guardiola will not want to rotate too heavily at the Liberty Stadium.

Kevin De Bruyne and Fernandinho remain the Citizens' two big-name absentees, though both should be back in time for the trip to Fulham at the end of the month.
Back-up goalkeeper Claudio Bravo is also out, but Fabian Delph is back involved and in line for his first start since January.

Guardiola has favoured the Nicolas Otamendi-John Stones partnership in this competition, though Vincent Kompany could return after being left out entirely against Schalke.
Gabriel Jesus has been involved in 10 goals in six domestic cup starts this season for Man City (seven goals, three assists), and he has scored three goals in two previous appearances against Swansea.

The home side may have to make do without Oliver McBurnie, meanwhile, as the striker did not recover from injury in time to face West Brom in midweek.

James, the star man against Brentford, is therefore in contention to start through the middle, as he did at The Hawthorns when used alongside Nathan Dyer, Celina and Wayne Routledge.

Celina will not be allowed to play any part this weekend, however, as per the terms of his loan agreement from parent club Man City, so George Byers - also on target in the last round - could take over in that position, with Jay Fulton alongside him.

Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Danilo, Kompany, Otamendi, Delph; Foden, Gundogan, D.Silva; Mahrez, Jesus, Sane

Swansea City possible starting lineup:
Nordfeldt; Roberts, Van der Hoorn, Carter-Vickers, Naughton; Fulton, Grimes, Byers; Dyer, James, Routledge

Head To Head
This will be the first ever FA Cup meeting between Swansea and Man City. However, the Swans are winless in 13 previous matches in all competitions, losing all but two of those.

The sides most recently faced off in last season's Premier League, with the Citizens claiming a 4-0 win at the Liberty Stadium in December 2017 and following that up with a 5-0 triumph on home soil four months later.

Swansea have been eliminated in six of their last seven FA Cup ties against Premier League opponents, winning the other in January 2014 away at Man United.
