Villa host the Citizens at their home to fight for the top spot in the Premier League

Aston Villa and Manchester City‘s upcoming match promises to be an exciting one. Despite setbacks due to injuries, Aston Villa could use home advantage to threaten City’s superiority. Manchester City who are in close contention with Arsenal for first place, will be hoping to make use of their attacking capabilities.

They have a team full of excellent players and are in good form. We can hope to have a fierce struggle as City will undoubtedly want to dominate, but Aston Villa is working great under Emery and may provide problems. The game is set up to be an exciting exhibition of ability and strategy between two strong teams.

Location: Villa Park

Form

Aston Villa (in all competitions): L-W-W-W-W

Manchester City (in all competitions): W-W-D-D-W

Players to watch for

Ollie Watkins – Aston Villa

Ollie Watkins is an important striker for Aston Villa who is known for his quickness and ability to create chances. He is a vital member of Emery’s attacking line, displaying both playmaking and finishing abilities. He has been key for the team by scoring seven goals and five assists already!

Erling Haaland – Manchester City

Manchester City’s Haaland is incredibly strong, quick, and skilled at his position. Because of his ability to identify gaps in defences and his track record of scoring goals, Haaland poses a serious threat to City’s attacking tactics. The Villa defence line will have to be really vigilant of the Norwegian striker.

Match facts

  • Out of Aston Villa’s 56 Premier League meetings with the defending champions, only four have been won.
  • In 17 of their previous 18 Premier League encounters with Aston Villa, Manchester City have scored at least one goal.
  • Since 2013, Aston Villa have failed to win any of their 13 Premier League matches against Manchester City. In their last 26 Wednesday Premier League games, Manchester City have won 25 of them.

Injury and team news

Aston Villa‘s injury difficulties continue as Buendia is out until February 2024 due to a knee injury. Alongside him, there are other uncertainties due to Traoré and Mings’ doubtful knee recovery. On the Manchester City side, the midfield qualities are affected by De Bruyne’s absence until January 14, 2024. Both teams face significant challenges as a result of these disappointments, forcing them to change their tactics and squad for next game at Villa Park.

It can be difficult to predict the result of a game, particularly when teams like Manchester City and Aston Villa are involved. Manchester City are second in the Premier League table and are still the favourites thanks to their formidable lineup. But despite their good play problems, Aston Villa is persistent and could use home advantage to present a threat. Though Manchester City’s recent performance may give them a small advantage, we can expect a fierce battle between both the teams fighting for top spot in Premier League.
