Swansea City welcome Manchester City to the Liberty Stadium this afternoon in their first game of the year.

Michael Laudrup warned his Swansea side they must be clinical in front of goal. The Welsh side lost 3-0 when the teams last met in December.

The game comes on the back of a 1-1 draw at Aston Villa, where the Swans dominated but failed to make the most of their advantage.

Swansea will start 2014 in 11th place in the Premier League table, having also safely negotiated the group stage of the Europa League.

But they are just five points above the relegation zone, whereas Manchester City currently sit just one point behind Premier League leaders Arsenal.
