Aston Villa Preview – Another bad defeat for the Villans?

Big things were expected of Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa before a ball was kicked this season, but the Midlands club have made a bad start to their 2022-23 Premier League campaign. Villa have taken three points from a possible 15 and are in the bottom three.

Aston Villa bounced back from an opening weekend defeat to Bournemouth with a 2-1 win over Frank Lampard’s Everton on matchday two. However, they have gone on to lose three in a row in the league, with Crystal Palace, West Ham United and Arsenal getting the better of them.

Our betting prediction:
Man City to win -1

Facing the champions is never an easy task, and Man City have been rampant in front of goal of late to make matters worse. Still, can Gerrard’s troops cause a big upset on home soil?

Manchester City Preview – Citizens to ease to victory in the Midlands?

Despite not being at their scintillating best, Manchester City have chalked up 13 points from a possible 15 and have scored a staggering 19 so far. New signing Erling Haaland has played a huge part in their early success, scoring nine of those 19 goals.

After a thrilling 3-3 draw with Newcastle United, Man City have won two in a row at home, scoring ten times. Last time out, Haaland scored his second hat-trick in as many matches as City thumped Steve Cooper’s Nottingham Forest at the Etihad Stadium.
