Aston Villa vs Manchester City: Match preview

Aston Villa’s form has deteriorated over recent weeks having won just twice in their last nine matches.

Dean Smith’s side have now dropped into the bottom half and currently sit 11th.

Although the Midlands club does have two games in hand over most of the sides above them.

If Villa could win both their games in hand, they could climb as high as 8th.

In their previous outing, they had a point snatched away from them as Trent Alexander-Arnold netted a winner in stoppage time for Liverpool.

A huge week for City

Manchester City have a huge week coming up as they have a League Cup Final and a Champions League semi-final.

Guardiola’s side travel to Wembley on Sunday to take on a Jose Mourinho-less Spurs side.

After the League Cup Final, they go to France to take on Paris Saint-Germain in the first-leg of the Champions League semi-final.

But on Wednesday, they are in league action and could open an 11 point lead at the top with a win.

Manchester United currently trail them by eight points with six games left to play.
