Manchester City vs Aston Villa: Kick-off time, H2H & Lineups

Manchester City haven’t performed at their best in matches against title contenders recently. Before the international break, they faced Liverpool and could only manage a 1-1 draw. Just a few days ago, they played against Arsenal and despite having more shots and possession, they ended up with a goalless draw. Currently, City trails Liverpool by three points in the table, and they are determined to reduce this gap.

On the contrary, Aston Villa currently occupies a top-four position in the Premier League. However, their quest for the title has been out of reach for some time now. The club’s primary objective is to secure their place in the top four and avoid slipping to fifth position. Currently, the gap between Aston Villa and Tottenham, who still have a game in hand, is just three points. Aston Villa suffered a significant defeat against Tottenham, losing 0-4 not long ago. They also failed to secure points against West Ham in a 1-1 draw. However, they managed to defeat Ajax in the Conference League with an impressive aggregate score of 4-0 after a goalless draw in the first leg.

Indeed, Aston Villa has been performing well this season, consistently maintaining their position in the top four. However, their recent performance over the past few months has not been exceptional. On the other hand, Manchester City has recently dropped points on two occasions. As they are still in the championship race, they cannot afford to falter again.
