Manchester City vs. Aston Villa Preview

Manchester City

City is battling Arsenal and Liverpool in the title race, and the slightest detail could determine whether they defend the title or leave it to the Gunners or the Reds.

Coming into last weekend, they hadn’t lost 22 games, and the last team to defeat the champs was Villa, back on December 10 in Birmingham. Ever since, the Citizens were more or less pretty ruthless. Guardiola’s side was impressive at home before their Arsenal contest, having ten wins and four draws with 34 goals scored and 12 allowed. 

Apart from the title race, the hosts’ additional motive here would be their loss in Birmingham earlier this season. It’s one of three Premiership failures they’ve endured.

Aston Villa

The Villains hit the road after meeting Wolves last weekend. Their opponents couldn’t be tougher, with the Treble champions hosting them at the Etihad. Villa holds the fourth spot in the Premiership standings, having three points more than Tottenham but also having a game more than their rivals from London. 

Aston Villa has a solid record away from home, with them winning seven of 15 Premiership outings, having four ties and losses with a goal difference of 25 scored and 23 conceded goals.

As you can see, their away matches are efficient. Five of the past seven were with at least three goals involved. By the way, counting all the competitions, that is including the Europa Conference League and the FA Cup, Villa has one loss in the last ten meetings, with five victories and four ties.

Manchester City vs. Aston Villa Predictions

The tradition is clearly on City’s side, and with the home-court edge, their quality, and the current situation, this is enough for us to pick them to win this one. We respect Aston Villa, Unai Emery and the squad, but here, we back the hosts to take three points. 

Our verdict: Manchester City wins
