Aston Villa vs. Manchester City Preview & Tips

Posted on by editor

Life doesn’t get any easier of Aston Villa this weekend as they host league leaders, Manchester City, at Villa Park.

Aston Villa vs. Manchester City Trends Analysis

Man City have won six of their last ten matches against Aston Villa, two wins have gone the way of Villa and two matches ended in draws.

Aston Villa last beat City at Villa Park in last season’s Premier League, and drew their previous encounter at Villa Park. In fact one has to go back to November 2006 to find the last time that Man City emerged from Villa Park with a win.

After a brief, solid run, that saw Aston Villa beat Chelsea, the club is back in the doldrums with two defeats, two draws and a single win to show for their last five games. The club has proven itself unable to continue to challenge top teams, losing to both Arsenal and Newcastle in recent weeks.

The club’s strikers have been doing well enough, scoring 9 goals in five matches. Defence has been all over the place, letting in 10 goals during this time, and effectively cancelling out the strong showing by the forwards.

Man City aren’t having things all go their way either, with three wins, a draw and a single defeat from their last five games. These included a defeat to Everton, and a draw against a fast-improving Liverpool in the League Cup.

Man City have been scoring at a brisk rate, with 9 goals put away in five matches, and have hardly missed the injured Mario Balotelli. Defence could be doing better, with 5 goals conceded in these games.

Aston Villa vs. Manchester City Betting Tips

Aston Villa have something of a psychological edge coming into this game. City know that their hosts have what it takes to knock over top clubs, having beaten Chelsea, and they haven’t lost to City at Villa Park in half a decade.

Meanwhile Manchester City must be feeling fairly confident after cleaning up Fulham 3-0 on the weekend.

This is the part of the season where City will have to prove that they have the ruthless efficiency needed to win the Premier League title. Our betting tip is to cash in a free £25 bet from William Hill and back City for the win.
