Watch Live: Swansea City vs Manchester City (Lineups and Live Stream)

Something must give as Swansea City and Manchester City, a pair of teams on winning streaks, meet at the Liberty Stadium Sunday live on NBCSN at 8:30am ET or live online at NBC Sports Live Extra.

The visitors have made a late charge and are in control of the battle for second place with just two matches to go. A win would take Manchester City six points clear of Arsenal for second, confirming their second place finish.

Manuel Pellegrini is missing just Samir Nasri due to a groin injury, but otherwise has no other injury concerns. Wishing not to change the team thanks to four wins in a row, Vincent Kompany has been brought back from his thigh injury but only earns a place on the bench, with Martin Demichelis and Eliaquim Mangala remaining the starting central defenders. Yaya Toure also returns to the starting lineup, replacing Fernando.

Meanwhile, Swansea City misses defender Angel Rangel, who picked up a groin problem in the win over Arsenal last weekend. Jazz Richards replaces him, fresh off his loan spell at Championship side Fulham. That win featured a winner from Bafetimbi Gomis, who came on as a late substitute and grabbed a goal that needed goal line technology to confirm the score. Today, Gomis earned a start for the first time in a month, moving Gylfi Sigurdsson back into the attacking midfield.
