Manchester City handed double boost ahead of Aston Villa clash

Pep Guardiola spoke to the media on Friday ahead of Manchester City’s final outing of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign.

Man City will face off with Aston Villa at 4 pm UK time on Sunday at the same time the remaining 18 Premier League sides are in action.

Pep discussed a number of topics ahead of the game, including team news.

Previously both Kyle Walker and John Stones were expected to be out for the remainder of the season. However, when speaking on Friday, Pep said: “They made a partial training. Today again partial and we will see tomorrow but it’s good for us to have them back.”

He added: “We have incredible doctors”

Manchester City vs Aston Villa

Manchester City head into the Villa game knowing they are just 90 minutes away from becoming Premier League champions for a 4th time under Pep Guardiola.

The Sky Blues are top of the Premier League ahead of gameweek 38, but Liverpool are just one point behind them.

And as Liverpool are expected to beat Wolves, Manchester City must secure a win vs Villa to clinch the title.

Should they fail to do so, you could argue that 2021/22 has been a failure for the Sky Blues who, without the league title, would finish the campaign trophyless for the first time since 2016/17.
