Manchester City vs Aston Villa Match Preview

Manchester City suffered a shock 2-0 defeat to Wolves in their last Premier League home match, but are not expected to have any such problems when they host their conquerors’ West Midlands rivals Aston Villa.

That loss is probably best attributed to being ‘one of those days’ that happen now and again to the best teams for City still had 76% possession, they just could not break down their opponents and were undone twice in the last 10 minutes on the counter-attack by the rapid Adama Traore.

Aston Villa will travel north with the possible realisation that if this is another of the wide open, entertaining goalfests in which they have been involved over the course of their last five matches, it will not help them to get a positive result.
