Aston Villa v Manchester City Match Preview & Trends

Can City bounce back after Leeds defeat and bring Champions League form to the Premiership?

After making it through to the Champions League semi-finals at the expense of Borussia Dortmund this week, Pep Guardiola will no doubt rotate his multi-million pound squad for the trip to Villa Park as his City side embark on a gruelling end of season fixture list. Manchester neighbours United closed the gap to just 8 points at the top of the league by beating Burnley 3-1 at Old Trafford so City will need to respond to keep the pressure off themselves at this crucial time of the season.

If Aston Villa win, they would reduce the gap with Manchester City to a 27-point difference in the league table, and it would be the end of a 9-match winning streak away for Manchester City. Villa have won just one of their last 5 Premier League games and haven’t won their last 10 matches in a row against Man City including their last 5 home matches in a row against The Cityzens. Dean Smiths men will once again be without club captain Jack Grealish but will seek inspiration of top scorer Ollie Watkins who recently became an England International and scored on his debut.

Manchester City have won 73% of their away matches, have not conceded any goal in 53% of their away games and scored in 87% of their fixtures on the road. 65% of City’s conceded goals were conceded at home and they have been leading at halftime in 56% of their matches. The Cityzens have scored the opening goal in 81% of their matches and at least 1 first half goal has been scored in 84% of Man City’s Premier League games this season. Manchester City have been undefeated in their last 10 away matches, winning 9 and drawing 1. They have scored in each of their last 9 away matches and Guardiola’s side have not conceded any goal in their last 3 away matches.

Key trends

Manchester City have won 72% of their matches

Aston Villa have picked up an average of 1.43 Points Per Game in their 14 matches played at home

Manchester City’s average Points Per Game in their 15 away games is 2.4.
