Aston Villa host Manchester City in this Premier League match at the Villa Park. While Aston Villa presently occupy the 11th position with 44 points, Manchester City are the table-toppers. They have a 8 point lead over second-placed Manchester United and have logged 23 wins so far in the Premier League.
Jack Grealish and Trezeguet will be missing out on this game due to injuries. There is a cloud of uncertainty over the availability of Morgan Sanson.
Kevin De Bruyne is injured and will be missing out on this game. Sergio Aguero is also likely to miss out.
Aston Villa have been quite impressive in this season and they have produced some remarkable performances. However, they are coming on the back off a 1-2 defeat to Liverpool and will be scratching their heads ahead of this humongous game against Manchester City. Ollie Watkins had scored for Villa in their previous game and has been a star player for the side.
Manchester City have been a juggernaut in this season and have been a huge force for the other teams to deal with. However, they crashed out of the FA Cup semi-finals after a defeat at the hands of Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea. This pushed their quadruple dream, down the drain. They still have a chance of winning the treble and they would be eyeing for it. A Premier League victory is guaranteed for the Cityzens, provided there are no hiccups on the way. Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez had scored for them in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg, against Borussia Dortmund.
