Manchester city and Aston Villa face off at the Etihad Stadium on this match of the 43th round of the Premier League.

The “Citizens” are currently the 4th team on the table with 64 points, two behind the 2nd place. On their last match they won against West Ham 2-0.

Villa is currently 15th with 32 points coming from 8 wins, 8 draws and 17 losses. They have won their last match 1-0 against Tottenham.

The head to head history favours Manchester City clearly. On their last 15 matches they have won 11 with 2 draws and 3 losses. 

Analysis of Manchester City

Manchester City normally utilizes a 4-2-3-1 formation. On more accessible matches though, sometimes Pellegrini reverts to a 4-3-3 upping the pressure on the front.

The Citizens are extremely dangerous on the fast break with Navas taking the wheel. The Spaniard is remarkable with his skill to take the ball into the danger zone. He is the responsible for feeding their attacking star, Aguero who has 20 goals already.

Despite the experience and technical ability of their backline, the defence is still their main weakness, being prone to mistakes and presenting some problems recuperating the ball.

Probable Starters: Hart; Zabaleta, Mangala, Demichelis, Kolarov; Fernando, Lampard, Yaya Touré; David Silva, Navas, Agüero.
Coach: Manuel Pellegrini

Confirmed Lineup: J. Hart, M. Demichelis, P. Zabaleta, E. Mangala, A. Kolarov, F. Lampard, Jesús Navas, David Silva, Fernando, Y. Touré, S. Agüero.
Coach: M. Pellegrini.

Analysis of Aston Villa

Against the much more powerful City coach Sherwood will utilize a 4-3-3 formation with Agbonlahor, Benteke and Grealish trying to pierce the opponents defence. They will probably play deep trying to not give the other side any chances.

Villa has some important absences for this match though with Herd, Senderos, Cissokho and Hutton unavailable and Clark and Agbolanhor doubtful.

The main danger of the team will be Benteke, the Belgian striker is force to be reckoned with, having scored 10 times already which makes him Villa’s top scorer.
Probable Starters: Guzan; Bacuna, Vlaar, Baker, Richardson; Westwood, Cleverley, Deph; Grealish, N’Zogbia, Benteke.
Coach: Tim Sherwood

Confirmed Lineup: B. Guzan, R. Vlaar, J. Okore, K. Richardson, L. Bacuna, C. Sánchez, J. Grealish, T. Cleverley, A. Westwood, F. Delph, C. Benteke.
Coach: T. Sherwood.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match is Manchester City to score at least twice. It is expected that the citizens will control the pace of the match creating the best goal scoring opportunities. Aston Villa on the other hand will keep a low block throughout the game trying to delay the opponents goal as long as possible.
