Prediction: Aston Villa vs Manchester City

Prediction: Manchester City to win 2-1

Best Odds: 13/2

Bookmaker: Betfair

Aston Villa and Manchester City will face each other in the Premier League this week. The game is slated to kick off at 8:15pm on Wednesday and promises to be an exciting game of football.

Aston Villa

Villa are 11th in the Premier League table at the moment with 44 points from 30 matches. Dean Smith’s side are unlikely to finish in the Champions League places, but they could still claim a Europa League spot.

The Villans will head into the match against City on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Liverpool away from home at Anfield in the Premier League. It followed a 3-1 victory over Fulham at Villa Park in the league.

Team News:

England international attacking midfielder Jack Grealish is out because of injury.

Manchester City

Manchester City are pretty much guaranteed of winning the Premier League title this season. The Citizens are at the top of the standings at the moment with 74 points from 32 matches, as many as eight points clear of second-placed and city rivals Manchester United. Of course, there is still a chance that the Red Devils could catch them, but it is unlikely.

City will head into the match against Villa on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Chelsea in the semi-finals of the FA Cup. It followed 2-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League that saw them progress to the semi-finals of Europe’s premier club competition.

Team News:

Kevin de Bruyne will miss the match against Villa due to an injury to his right foot.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Manchester City have scored 67 goals in 32 Premier League games this season.
  • Aston Villa have scored 43 gaols in 30 Premier League games this season.
  • Manchester City have conceded 23 goals in 32 Premier League matches this campaign.
  • Aston Villa have conceded 33 goals in 30 Premier League matches this campaign.
  • Manchester City beat Aston Villa 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium in January 2021.

Conclusion

Villa are not an easy side to win against, although without attacking midfielder Grealish, they are not the same team. City have arguably the best squad in the Premier League, and they should win the game with ease.
