Manchester City vs Aston Villa Betting Tips

It´s hard to know what to expect from Aston Villa in this match with the Midlands club forced to cancel recent PL matches because of a COVID outbreak at the club´s training ground.

Villa revealed the coronavirus outbreak on January 7th, just one day before they faced Liverpool in the FA Cup. While that fixture would be fulfilled using a squad comprising entirely of youth players, their subsequent Premier League fixtures with Tottenham last Wednesday and Everton this past weekend were postponed.

While the club has indicated that this fixture should be completed, it´s impossible to tell at this stage how strong or weak Villa will be in terms of player availability. Still, either way, it´s hard to imagine Villa getting any positive result here, particularly given the recent form of their hosts.

Much depends on team-news, so it makes sense to hold-fire on this fixture until Villa´s squad is revealed. Still, even if they can call on key men such as McGinn, Grealish and Al-Ghazi, it´s unlikely to match much of a difference against a City side that has won each of their last 7 matches, keeping clean sheets in 5 of those victories. (Written before their home match against Palace on Sunday).

Man City have also won each of their last 5 matches against Villa while they have kept clean sheets in 4 of their last 6 matches against Dean Smith´s side.

As such, I expect another home win here with BTTS - NO looking like a solid pick with Villa likely to be under-strength against a City side that seems to be getting back to it´s imperious best.

Manchester City vs Aston Villa Correct Score Prediction

It´s hard to make a conclusive prediction without the benefit of knowing what players will be available for the visitors but all things considered, a comfortable 3:0 win for Pep´s re-energised side looks a decent shout.
