Manchester City Match Betting News

The euphoria of winning the Capital One Cup quickly dissipated for Manchester City after they suffered an extremely disappointing 3-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool on Wednesday night and the result was the Citizens’ third consecutive loss in the Premier League.

Such a terrible run of domestic form has seen City’s hopes of claiming the title put into jeopardy and they can now no longer go through such slip ups in order stand a chance of catching up to Leicester City at the top of the table.

Now City prepare to welcome hapless Aston Villa this weekend and anything other than a victory on the day will be construed as a huge disaster for Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

The likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Fabian Delph and Samir Nasri remain ruled out while Yaya Toure has been considered a doubt ahead of the clash.

Aston Villa Match Betting News

Aston Villa suffered a 3-1 home defeat at the hands of Everton last weekend and it is safe to say that Remi Garde’s men can now start preparing for life in the Championship.

While mathematically still not down, Villa now need a miracle to avoid the drop and the last ten games seems no more than a formality for the once proud Premier League club.

Villa prepare to square off against title challenging Manchester City this weekend and if they can avoid a heavy loss from the clash, it will be construed as a positive for the strugglers. Jordan Amavi, Jack Grealish, Libor Kozak, Carlos Sanchez and Adama Traore are out injured for Villa.

Manchester City vs Aston Villa Match Prediction

Aston Villa held Manchester City to a 0-0 draw earlier on in the season but no one expects the Villans to earn anything from the clash on Saturday.

Admittedly, City are on a terrible losing streak but Villa are simply woeful and the home side should be able to claim a comfortable victory from the game.
