Aston Villa Preview – Can Aston Villa win back-to-back?

Sunday’s hosts, Aston Villa, head into this important Sunday clash against Manchester City having won 2 of their last 3 matches overall in the Premier League having registered vital wins against Norwich City 1-0 and a 2-1 win away from home at Burnley last time out.

These recent and much-needed wins have just about helped Villa keep their heads above water in terms of avoiding being sucked down into the bottom three and the relegation zone, but they’ll face a tough task of containing this visiting Manchester City side here on Sunday despite holding home advantage.

4 of Aston Villa’s total of 6 league wins to date this season have been collected at Villa Park though and this’ll give the hosts belief that they can perhaps upset the odds and grab a crucial three points in their bid to escape the drop.

However, recent wins against Newcastle United and Norwich City are one thing but having lost each of their last three meetings against Manchester City, this recent history doesn’t bode well ahead of this upcoming fixture against the current title holders.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Manchester City Preview – Can Man City overhaul Leicester?

Recent form suggests that Manchester City could make life extremely difficult for their Sunday’s hosts, Aston Villa, prior to their trip to the west midlands as City have grabbed 4 wins out of their last 5 matches overall in the Premier League.

With Liverpool now seemingly out of sight with The Reds holding a commanding and most likely unassailable 14-point margin over Pep Guardiola’s side, it looks like City will have to make do with the runners-up spot at best.

Recent wins against Arsenal 3-0, Leicester City 3-1, Sheffield United 2-0 and a 2-1 win against Everton have kept the visitors firmly in the hunt for a 2nd place finish and they’ll no doubt be looking to take advantage of a nervous and under-pressure Aston Villa outfit on Sunday.

Results away from home though have been disappointing where City are concerned as, by their standards, they’ve slipped up in games where they shouldn’t have; a heavy 3-1 loss at Liverpool was bad enough, but their 3-2 loss at Wolves was even worse. City will no doubt be looking for better luck in this second trip on the trot to the west midlands this Sunday.
