The Champions host Villa at the Etihad in this intriguing Premier League matchup!

The matchup between Manchester City and Aston Villa pairs City’s powerful attack with the likes of Foden, Haaland, De Bruyne and many more against Villa’s sturdy defence. This Premier League match is made more intriguing by Villa’s capacity to withstand pressure and take advantage of counterattacking opportunities.

It will be a battle of tactical brilliance between Guardiola and Emery. Despite the fact City may have a home advantage and their stronger team, Villa have it all that takes to cause an upset.
