Match Preview

Manchester City will travel to Villa Park as they take on Aston Villa this Wednesday.

After Chelsea dropped points at home against Manchester United, the Blues are now ahead of Manchester City by just 1 point. City needs to keep winning to stay in what looks like a 3 horse race for the title, after 2 seasons of one club running away with the title.

Aston Villa on the other hand will go into the match with back to back wins under the management of Steven Gerrard, who would love to guide his team to a third straight win. Read our Preview, Predictions, and Betting Tips with Analysis here.

Aston Villa vs Manchester City Head-to-head

  • The Lions have not got the better of this foe in the last 11 meetings.
  • 3 or more goals were scored in 6 of the last 7 h2h matches.
  • The Citizens have registered wins in 7 consecutive games over this side.
  • They are undefeated at this venue in their last 6 trips.


Steven Gerrard got the better of Patrick Vieira in Villa’s previous match against Crystal Palace in a 1-2 score line away from home while City got their revenge on West Ham for knocking them out of the League Cup with a 2-1 win at home.

The Lions after significant changes in the squad started off the season poorly losing on 7 occasions while managing just 3 wins before Gerrard took over as manager who has steered the team out of a relegation scare as the club is currently 13th in the league, 7 points clear of relegation.

Apart from the losses against London clubs Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspurs and the stalemate against Southampton, Guardiola’s men have looked comfortable in the league. They currently occupy the 2nd position in the league with 29 points. Their convincing 2-1 win against PSG at home has taken them top of Group A of the Champions League, 3 points ahead of the Parisians. 

Aston Villa vs Manchester City Prediction

After a string of wins against Club Brugge, Manchester United, Everton, PSG, and West Ham United I do not see the hosts dropping points in the fixture. They have kept 7 clean sheets in the league this season and have conceded just 7 goals all season and are expected to register their 8th clean sheet in this fixture.

The Sky Blues have scored an average of 2.60 goals in their last 5 fixtures across all competitions and will go against a club that have conceded 21 goals already this season. The match should witness over 2.5 goals.  

Score Prediction

MAN CITY  [ 2 ] - [ 1 ] ASTON VILLA
