Manchester City fans react on Twitter to Martin Demichelis performance v Swansea

Supporters of the Premier League champions were delighted with the Argentine's display during their 2-1 win over Garry Monk's men.

Manchester City got back to winning ways on Saturday and it was in no small part down to a strong defensive showing from centre-back Martin Demichelis.

Many City fans picked the defender as their man of the match as Manuel Pellegrini's side beat Swansea City 2-1 in the Premier League after he kept Wilfried Bony relatively quiet throughout the game.

The Swans striker did give the visitors the lead but Demichelis stopped him from doing further damage and goals from Stevan Jovetic and Yaya Toure secured victory at the Etihad Stadium.

Before the game, Pellegrini said his side could not afford to lose again this calendar year, having dropped points at Queens Park Rangers in their last league fixture.

After the match, meanwhile, he told BBC Sport: "I am very happy because we won the game. We played very well and had a lot of chances to score the third goal and we defended well.

"It was a difficult start because they scored with their only chance in the first half. We are absolutely confident in the way we play and sure we are going to win the game.

"If we scored the third goal we could play well and not so tight. We had the chances but didn't score. We have to play seven games more before the end of December and we have to fight for all of them."
