Manchester City vs Aston Villa Match Preview And Prediction

Manchester City vs Aston Villa:  In their prior 12 meetings with the Lions, Manchester City had 10 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss. With three points separating the Citizens from Liverpool atop the Premier League rankings, they cannot afford a mistake. Ollie Watkins will probably be sidelined on Wednesday due to an injury he sustained during the 2-0 victory over Wolves at the weekend.

Aston Villa’s 2-0 victory over Wolves on Saturday afternoon maintained their three-point lead over Spurs in the race for the top-four finish. Moussa Diaby was the star of the weekend, as his goal and assist propelled the side to crucial victory at home.

Unfortunately, Ollie Watkins, Villa’s outstanding player, was pulled off the field due to injury at halftime. Although we do not yet know his state, we are not optimistic about a start given the short turnaround time. On Wednesday night, Unai Emery’s team will encounter the most formidable opponents. They make their way to Etihad Stadium for one of the most thrilling Matchday No. 31 matchups as they take on the defending champions, Manchester City.

Before this match, Manchester City was likewise in severe need of points. On Sunday afternoon, they only drew 0-0 with their immediate rivals, Arsenal. Now, Pep Guardiola’s team trails Liverpool by three points at the top of the league standings. Can the Citizens recover from back-to-back draws?

Manchester City vs Aston Villa: Betting Analysis

In recent weeks, Manchester City has struggled to generate forward momentum. In five of the last six Premier League games, they have scored one goal or fewer. On Sunday, Guardiola’s team did not play particularly offensively against Arsenal.

That being said, Manchester City is still on our minds. They are still one of the greatest teams in the world at the moment, having taken the globe by storm the previous year. This season, the Citizens are undefeated at Etihad Stadium. They will have a great deal of motivation to bounce back from future league draws.

Despite keeping a clean sheet against an injury-plagued Wolves over the weekend, Aston Villa’s defense is everything from dependable. More significantly, Ollie Watkins, the Lions’ lucky charm, is probably going to be out of the lineup on Wednesday.

In numerous recent games, Phil Foden has emerged as the team’s hero while Erling Haaland has battled to reach his best form. In the hour of the derby against Arsenal this past weekend, Foden was substituted out.

We wouldn’t be shocked to see the Belgian on the bench and Foden given the go-ahead to play in the central attacking midfield position given that Kevin De Bruyne played the entire ninety minutes on Sunday. So far this season, Phil has scored 11 goals. We like the 2.87 odds that are available for him to score on Wednesday at any time.
