Both sides struggled to create chances in the opening half an hour, but Swansea thought that they had the opener after 36 minutes through Michu, but his effort was ruled out for offside.
The visitors had a great chance to take a shock lead five minutes before the break when Michu found himself one on one with Joe Hart, but the City keeper produced a fine save to deny the Spaniard.
Neither side could create another chance in the closing stages of the half as they entered the break at 0-0.
