Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has accused Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini of being disrespectful to his side as they prepare to face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Mancini last week said United could beat Swansea 10-0, and followed that up this week by re-iterating that the fixture is an "easy" game for the reigning champions as he seeks to take some of the pressure off his squad.

"He came here when we won the game 1-0 and we were clearly the better side and that was after Roberto spending about £235million on a team," Rodgers said. "So I think he knows as well as anyone it won't be an easy game."
