Premiership – Aston Villa vs Manchester City Betting Preview

Aston Villa started their league campaign with a 1-0 win over newly-promoted Bournemouth but since then they have taken just one point from ten matches. Villa have conceded 11 goals in their last five matches which does not bode well as they face the top scorers in the league who have put 14 past their opponents in the last 5 matches.

Manchester City have resumed their stunning form in which they started the season with seven wins in eight now but it will be a worry for them that they have managed to keep just one clean sheet in those eight matches. That shouldn’t prove a problem in this game as even if Villa manage to grab a goal, City are more than capable of putting at least two past this Villa side but it is something they will need to improve upon when facing better opposition.

Manchester City are top of table by goal difference heading into this match and they will want to secure the win here so that they head into the international break remaining top of table and as Arsenal face Tottenham, it could prove to be a chance to create a slight lead over them in terms of points.

Aston Villa vs Manchester City Head to Head Statistics

25/04/15 BPL Manchester City vs Aston Villa 3 : 2
04/10/14 BPL Aston Villa vs Manchester City 0 : 2
07/05/14 BPL Manchester City vs Aston Villa 4 : 0
28/09/13 BPL Aston Villa vs Manchester City 3 : 2
04/03/13 BPL Aston Villa vs Manchester City 0 : 1

These two sides have faced each other on 158 different occasions over the years and Manchester City have came out with the better record with 66 wins to Aston Villa’s 53.

But in the 78 meetings that have been hosted by Villa, they have somewhat dominated Manchester City with 36 victories whilst losing just 18.

Using the entire head to head record between these two teams, it would suggest that Aston Villa have the slight edge going into this game but if we take a look at more recent meetings we can see that City are in the driving seat. Villa have beaten City just twice in their last 13 meetings in the league.

Aston Villa Recent Form

02/11/15 BPL Tottenham vs Aston Villa 3 : 1
28/10/15 CAP Southampton vs Aston Villa 2 : 1
24/10/15 BPL Aston Villa vs Swansea 1 : 2
17/10/15 BPL Chelsea vs Aston Villa 2 : 0
03/10/15 BPL Aston Villa vs Stoke 0 : 1

Aston Villa head into this game on a six game losing streak which includes home losses against Swansea and Stoke which is very worrying heading into a game against much stronger opponents. They have conceded at least two goals in each of their last four games and they have a huge task on their hands here to not make that five.

Manchester City Recent Form

03/11/15 CHA Sevilla vs Manchester City 1 : 3
31/10/15 BPL Manchester City vs Norwich 2 : 1
28/10/15 CAP Manchester City vs Crystal Palace 5 : 1
25/10/15 BPL Manchester United vs Manchester City 0 : 0
21/10/15 CHA Manchester City vs Sevilla 2 : 1

Manchester City are flying at the minute as they come into this one after winning four of their previous five matches with the remaining game resulting in a draw away to rivals Manchester United which is also a decent result.

Aston Villa Team News:

This will be Remi Garde’s first game in charge will could mean that there will be a few changes to the side. Micah Richards is likely to return to the starting line-up after serving his one-match suspension whilst Gabriel Agbonlahor will face a late fitness test after suffering a calf problem against Tottenham.

Manchester City Team News:

The big news for City fans is that Pellegrini has revealed that David Silva could return for this match but it would most probably be as a substitute if he does feature in this game. Manchester City will still be without Sergio Aguero, Samir Nasri and Pablo Zabaleta for this game but both Delph and Clichy have returned to training this week.

Aston Villa vs Manchester City Average Goals Per Game Statistics

And in the 78 meetings that have taken place in which Villa have been the home side, there has been 219 goals scored meaning that there has been an average goals per game of 2.81.

Both sets of data suggest that the game on Sunday afternoon will see a minimum of two goals and it is likely that there will be three.

Aston Villa vs Manchester City Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

I think that this game has only got one outcome and that is a comfortable win for Manchester City. Aston Villa may come out stronger than in recent weeks as a new manager usually has an impact when they join a club but I don’t see it being significant enough to stop a Manchester City side that have beaten much more difficult opponents recently. And this is why my banker even though it is low odds is just for Manchester City to win this game, there are other bets you could take for better odds such as City to score in both halves or City -1 handicap but I am adopting a lower risk strategy in recent weeks for my bankers.

And as for my saver, there are also a few options you can take but I am avoiding the first goalscorer in this match as Manchester City have several players capable of scoring. I have decided to go for Manchester Cit with a -2 Handicap meaning that have to win by three or more goals because I can see City devastating Villa in this match especially if we see the return of David Silva. Other bets you could look at are City to win both halves or over 1.5 second half goals.
