  • Venue: Villa Park

Tremendously high scorers and champions of the land, Manchester City travel to Villa Park to add to their 19-goal tally already in 5 games played. Their hosts have not been in their real spirits, despite boasting a talented squad at their disposal. Aston Villa are sitting 19th in the relegation zone with 4 losses from 5 games played, in addition to a negative goal difference of 5 goals. Their home form is slightly better than their away form though. Villa have won their only game of the season at this venue. On the other hand, Manchester City dropped points when they played away from home last time around. A fantastic and inspiring performance from Newcastle United almost sank them, just for the game to end in a 2-2 draw after ninety minutes.

Aston Villa vs Manchester City Betting Tips

City have consistently put more than 3 goals past almost every opponent that they have faced this season. Against Villa, they have shown the same pattern in the head-to-head clashes. Moreover, Saturday's home side has also forced the Citizens to outscore them as Villa have netted against City in 5 of the last 6 meetings. We are predicting that Aston Villa will score in this game too, despite City dominance, but still will be overwhelmed by the plenty of talent that the champions bring to the table. Our prediction will be a 2-1 Manchester City win with betting advice to go for an ACCA of an Away win and Over 2.5 goals being scored.

Aston Villa Team News

Aston Villa are missing both the key players that they transferred in this summer window. Diego Carlos from Sevilla and Leander Dendoncker will both miss this game due to respective leg injuries, while Dendoncker is still tipped to make it to the bench by a late decision. After having a disappointing first season at Villa, Ollie Watkins has now scored thrice in 5 games to bring some positivity to the camp, which is falling apart due to the current league position. He is heavily supported defensively as well as offensively by the two full-backs - Lucas Digne and Matty Cash. The duo combines for over 4 interceptions every game on average, which is one of the best-combined rates in the league.

Erling Haaland has taken the league by storm as the Norwegian has already scored 9 goals in the space of 5 games. By this rate, the ex-Borussia Dortmund striker will break all the attacking records of the Premier League, that too by a mile. But, Villa might be spared the agony of facing this young explosive striker as Pep Guardiola will consider resting him for avoiding the risk of an injury. The absence of Jack Grealish also means that Julian Alvarez will finally get the nod as the number nine on Saturday. Aymeric Laporte will miss the game through injury too, and so does Nathan Ake, so any injury or suspension for John Stones or Ruben Dias might prove fatal. Julian Alvarez will be our player to watch, considering that he is filling the boots of Haaland in this game.
