Manchester City welcome Aston Villa to the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday evening with Pep Guardiola’s men knowing that a win will see them overtake rivals Manchester United at the top of the Premier League table.

The Citizens have won each of their last eight matches in all competitions and are clear favourites to extend that successful run against Dean Smith’s men.

The hosts are still missing defenders Aymeric Laporte, Nathan Ake and Eric Garcia, while Sergio Aguero will also be missing on Wednesday night.

Manchester City vs Aston Villa Preview

Villa head to the Etihad Stadium hoping to keep up their record of scoring in every away game they have played this season, with trips to Man United, Chelsea, Leicester City and Arsenal particularly standing out.

City’s defensive record in their own stadium remains formidable, keeping clean sheets in six of their nine home league games this term, but there should be some interest in backing the visitors to net on Wednesday night.

Indeed, Guardiola’s men have conceded against the likes of West Brom, West Ham, Leeds, and Wolves, meaning that Villa will fancy themselves to be able to at least get on the scoresheet.
