Manchester City vs Aston Villa Prediction
Manchester City can move to the summit of the Premier League table with a victory against Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium this week, where the defensively robust Citizens look capable of securing another clean sheet along with three points.
Guardiola’s men recorded a 4-0 win the last match-day at home against Crystal Palace. In the meantime, Dean Smith’s men lost 2-1 on the road the past game week, against Manchester United.
Aston Villa’s first team players will have gone 19 days without a game by the time Wednesday’s fixture rolls around, following some COVID-19 led disruption to their calendar, and match rhythm could be difficult to find as a result.
