Aston Villa – Manchester City
Aston Villa will have their sternest test under Steven Gerrard in the Premier League when they get to host Manchester City in their next game. The hosts go to this game placed 13th with 16 points and face a City side on 29 points, in second place. Villa have two straight wins since the appointment of Gerrard; their most recent coming at Crystal Palace. Now that the winning run is in and the confidence is definitely back, they will have the defence to work on.
Manchester City are coming from a fifth straight win after their 2-1 win over West Ham United at home. That was their third straight game, and win, at home but they haven’t struggled a lot away from home either. In their last five matches across all competitions, City have two clean sheets and both sides have scored in three.
Manchester City and Aston Villa have done well in their recent matches and two very confident sides will be facing off. Villa have the momentum under Steven Gerrard and City are motivated by the prospect of going top with a win here. With confidence high, and their recent runs in consideration, back both teams to score.
