The reigning champions settled for a point in a goalless draw with title rivals Arsenal at the weekend, while Unai Emery’s side were convincing 2-0 winners over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

As was the case in October’s equally cagey affair at the Emirates, just three shots on target were fired in the entirety of the tense tactical battle – only one of which came Man City’s way – and as a result, the Citizens still sit in the bronze medal position in the Premier League standings.

One point seperates Pep Guardiola’s side from second-placed Arsena, who also return to action on Wednesday night – facing it off with Luton Town – but Liverpool have now strode three clear on Man City, who need a five-goal swing in their favour on Wednesday to usurp the Reds for at least 24 hours.

Despite losing their red-hot streak in front of the Etihad nets, Sunday’s draw with Arsenal was Man City’s 23rd game without a defeat across all competitions since December, although there are no prizes on offer for guessing who Guardiola’s side were last condemned to defeat against.

Fresh from his first call-up to the France squad in 12 months, the rejuvenated Moussa Diaby was the catalyst behind Aston Villa’s two-goal beating of West Midlands rivals Wolves on Saturday, opening the scoring in the first half of the Villa Park battle with a thumping left-footed strike.

The former Bayer Leverkusen winger then turned provider for Ezri Konsa, whose mishit cross ended up deceiving Jose Sa and bouncing over the line at the back post to rubber-stamp a routing two-goal victory for the Lions, who therefore remain in control of their top-four fate.

Taking just one point from two matches with West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur opened the door for the latter to upset the Champions League apple cart, but Aston Villa still boast a three-point advantage over the Lilywhites, who do have a game in hand but possess a slightly inferior goal difference.

Man City Team News

Nathan Ake had to be taken off in the first half of Sunday’s draw with Arsenal with an unspecified concern, while neither Ederson nor Kyle Walker recovered from their thigh injuries in time either.

Rico Lewis should replace the stricked Ake for Wednesday’s game, while Jeremy Doku and former Villain Jack Grealish might also come into Guardiola’s thinking out wide given the tight turnaround.

Aston Villa Team News

Aston Villa have been dealt a worrying attacking concern ahead of this contest, as Ollie Watkins succumbed to a hamstring injury in the win over Wolves and had to be replaced by Jhon Duran.

Emery is definitely without Tyrone Mings (knee), Boubacar Kamara (knee), Emiliano Buendia (knee) and Matty Cash (thigh), as well as banned John McGinn.
