Venue: Etihad Stadium (Manchester)
Manchester City sauntered to victory in their previous game against Crystal Palace, continuing their impressive winning streak. This good form could be rewarded with them going top of the league if they can muster a win when they host the Villa on home turf.

Although Aston Villa’s senior team have not been in action since New Year's Day due to the outbreak of Covid-19 within their squad, they will be looking to pick up from where they left off in that heartbreaking 2-1 loss to Manchester United.

Manchester City vs Aston Villa Team News

Pep Guardiola's men are enjoying a great run of form at the moment, winning five matches on the bounce in the league, scoring ten goals and conceding once in the process. As this run is quite reminiscent of their title-winning seasons, it is quite fair to say the Citizens are back!

City occupy second-place on the league table, and that might not be for too long as they are just two points adrift table-toppers Manchester United, with a crucial game in hand. 

Given the Sky Blues were struggling at the bottom half of the table at some point this season, this emphatic turnaround engineered by their Spanish gaffer deserves some plaudits.

Guardiola will be charging his boys on to continue to keep things sealed and tidy at the back as that seems to be the foundation behind their fantastic performances. This is evident enough as they boast the best defensive record in the league, having conceded a paltry 13 goals in 17 matches.

Aston Villa are also high-flying in the league this season. It is worthy of note that their last victory in the league came on Boxing Day against City's last opponent, Crystal Palace – a routine 3-0 win.

The triumph over Palace marked their only victory in their previous three league outings. That said, they've won thrice, drawn thrice and lost only once in their last six. Villa have never really shy in front of goal this term having mustered the same goal tally as Manchester City, even with two fewer games.

Dean Smith would have preferred a less daunting fixture than this City game, as his players are lacking some match fitness and sharpness, having not featured in a single fixture since New Year’s Day. Aston Villa would need to be in their element to stand a chance against the Citizens.

In what could prove to be more of a tactical contest than a physical one, Aston Villa will not feel hard done by anything that comes up here, given the quality of opposition they are up against. The likes of Grealish and El Ghazi must come to the fore for this side.

Injured or Suspended Players

Man City vs Aston Villa Predictions

So far this season, Aston Villa have been particularly good on the road with five wins from eight away games. And their defensive record in the league is second only to that of their opponent, Manchester City.

Even with these, it is hard to see a cagey affair here as both teams have more than enough quality to hurt each other. But if we factor in match fitness and sharpness, team form and overall quality, Manchester City are huge favorites.
