Sinclair is delighted to be facing FA Cup holders City first up. But the clash he is looking forward to more than any other is Swansea's trip to Chelsea on September 24.
England Under-21 star Sinclair, 22, spent three years at Stamford Bridge before moving to the Liberty Stadium last year.
He said: "It's good to get a big team at the start of the season but the one I can't wait for is Chelsea away.
"It'll be great to go back to the Bridge and face a few friends."
