Aston Villa News and Form – Can Villa avoid defeat against Man City?

The Villains have won two of their last three league games (L1). Those were one-goal margin successes over Norwich and Burnley. To take a look at the other side of things, Villa have lost five of their last seven and have won only two of their last eight top-flight games. The home record of the Villains is W4 D2 L4 this season, where they have scored an average of 1.3 goals per game. A positive for Aston Villa is that they have scored in each of their last seven Premier League home fixtures.

Ladbrokes

In each of Aston Villa’s last 16 league games, 13 of them have gone over 2.5 goals. Considering that they are facing Manchester City, that’s not a good thing for the Villains. The defence of Villa is an issue for them. Heading into the weekend, only Southampton and Norwich had conceded more goals than Villa this season. Each of the three wins that Villa have secured at home have been against sides who finished New Years’ Day in the bottom half of the table. Villa have hosted the top two of Liverpool this season and lost both.

Manchester City News and Form – Can City win at Aston Villa?

The Citizens have taken back to back wins, victories against Sheffield United and Everton on home soil. The away record of Man City this season is W6 D1 L3 and they did lose their most recent road fixture. They went down 3-2 at Wolves with 10-men. Manchester City have averaged 2.7 goals per away game in the top flight this season, with 80% of their road games making above the 3.5 goal line. City have struck at least two goals in each of their last five Premier League fixtures.

They are on a thirteen match scoring streak as well in the division and have found the back of the net in all away games played. The Citizens have been leading at the halftime break in six of their road games and City have scored at least 2 goals in 10 of their last 11 away matches in the Premier League. Pep Guardiola’s men have opened the scoring in 8 of their 10 road fixtures. They have scored in both halves in 70% of the away games and given the amount of possession that they are likely to get, they could make it a very long afternoon for Villa.

Aston Villa vs Manchester City Predictions

Man City to win: It’s hard to see the weak defence of Aston Villa holding out for too long against Manchester City. Villa had midweek work a day later than the Citizens did, so that’s working against them as well. It should be a comfortable road win for Man City.
