Aston Villa vs. Manchester City Match Analysis and Prediction

Only 11 points stand between Manchester City and lifting their third league title in the last four seasons when they play host to Aston Villa. The match schedules for Wednesday at Villa Park, with kickoff at 10:15 pm.

A positive result from the hosts could see them climb to the top half of the league standings after coming to a 2-1 loss to Liverpool. On the other hand, City comes from a disappointing 1-0 defeat in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Picking a quadruple was a mission for Pep Guardiola, who embarked on a domestic and continental glory mission. However, a 1-0 defeat to Chelsea courtesy of Hakim Ziyech denied the Citizens a spot in the FA Cup finals.

Rumors reveal that Manchester City is planning to withdraw from the European Super League, same with Chelsea and Atletico Madrid. It seems the pressure is bound to put a halt to the idea that divided many in the football world.

The side has another chance of their first trophy this season when they host ‘Mourinho-less Tottenham’ in the Carabao Cup final. Besides, they have second-placed Manchester United chasing closely with an eight-point gap.

On the other hand, Dean Smith’s blistering start to the new season is depreciating, especially in the recent weeks. Despite their last loss to Liverpool, Smith can cherish that the side can compete with the ‘Big Six.’
