Manchester City vs. Aston Villa Match Analysis and Prediction

Manchester City has a chance to move to the top of the Premier League table for the first time since August 2019 when they play host to Aton Villa. The match schedules for Wednesday with kickoff at 9 pm.

Pep Guardiola’s side is slowly reinstating themselves as worthy contenders for the Premier League title race after a horrid start to the new season. They come up against a Villa side that has had no action in top-flight for almost three weeks.

Manchester City showed how a little bit of consistency this season can go a long way in reinstating one’s season in the league. It is impossible to believe that Guardiolas’ side was once 15th on the table and currently occupy a top four-seat

The side easily passed through Crystal Palace in a 4-0 win, with John Stone netting a brace. The side became the first team this season to string five wins in top-flight together this season. The Citizens enjoyed the dramatic 0-0 draw against rivals Manchester United and Liverpool. Their unbeaten streak currently runs at 15 matches.

Villa’s first outing was a trip to Manchester as they fell for a 2-1 defeat at Manchester United’s hands. The side has not picked up a victory since their last one against Crystal Palace on Boxing Day. Their head to head record against City is another worry for Dean Smith.

Manchester City Team News

After coming in contact with some who tested positive for coronavirus, Sergio Aguero remains out of contention after a period of self-isolation after coming in contact. After Gabriel Jesus failed to score in their last outing, we expect a shuffle to the starting XI.

Aston Villa Team News

It is hard to predict the starting XI for the side given the rising cases of positive coronavirus in the camp. Trezeguet is a confirmed case and could miss out. Wesley continues to be a long-term absentee for the side.

Prediction and Odds

We do not expect a goal-fest given the solid defensive records for both sides in conceding goals this season.

City Win

Goals Under 2.5
