Pep Guardiola’s side move to third in the EPL table but remain 10 points adrift of leaders Chelsea.
Nigeria forward Kelechi Iheanacho did not make the match day squad for Pep Guardiola’s side. It was the fourth consecutive game Iheanacho has missed since the arrival of Jesus from Palmerias in January.
Gylfi Sigurdsson’s 81st minute goal for the Welsh side looked to have secured a point nine minutes from time after it cancelled out Jesus’ 11th minute opener for the Citizens during the encounter.

But Jesus scored an easy tap after Swansea goalkeeper Lucas Fabianski failed to hold on his header off a cross from David Silva.
Guardiola’s men started the encounter mounting pressure on the visitors with Leroy Sane, Jesus and David Silva all coming close to scoring.
City had ten attempts on goal going into the break and were the dominant side at the restart.
With nine minutes left to play Swansea equalised. Sigurdsson fired in a low left foot strike after receiving a pass at the edge of the box.
