Manchester City Prediction – Can Man City reduce deficit?

The hosts certainly have a reasonable chance of reducing Liverpool’s lead at the top, albeit overnight on Saturday, if they take all three points at home against Aston Villa in this lunchtime kick-off, while Liverpool have a potentially tricky match against Tottenham on Sunday.

Back to Manchester City though, and Pep Guardiola’s side recorded an emphatic 5-1 home win over Italian side, Atalanta, in the Champions League during the week which came on the back of last weekend’s 2-0 win away at Crystal Palace with the defeat to Wolves now seeming a distant memory.

City’s 3-2 defeat away at Norwich City will probably be remembered for longer, but form at home will need to continue if they’re to keep the pressure upon Liverpool at the top of the Premier League. They have a great opportunity to just that against a poor travelling Aston Villa outfit though this Saturday.

With Leicester City now emerging as possible contenders again for the title following their 9-0 rout of Southampton on Friday night, Manchester City will be eager to assert their authority at the top of the table here, and Villa may well be bracing themselves ahead of this clash!

Aston Villa Prediction – Can Aston Villa win three on the trot?

If they’re to do so, they’ll have to equal what their west midlands counterparts, Wolves, did a couple of weeks ago when they registered a 2-0 win at the Etihad Stadium, but as Villa have lost 3 of their 4 away matches so far this season, this feat looks beyond them on Saturday.

Nevertheless, against the mere mortals of the Premier League recently, Aston Villa have recorded back-to-back wins against Norwich City 5-1 away from home and a 2-1 home win against Brighton to hand the west midlands club a very useful 6-point haul, and they’re now unbeaten in their last 3 matches heading into Saturday’s trip to Manchester.

Villa earned a point in an earlier 2-2 draw at home with Burnley, but while the visitors have suffered just 1 defeat from their first 5 matches on home turf at Villa Park so far this term, their results away from home have left a lot to be desired.

An away record of 1-0-3 8/8 includes defeats at Tottenham, Crystal Palace and Arsenal, with their one highlight being their resounding 5-1 win at Norwich City. They possess a poor record against Manchester City though in recent times and could find themselves on the end of a rather heavy defeat here.

Betting Tips Verdict
