Aston Villa

Aston Villa is just a point above the relegation zone so they are motivated to at least get a point against Manchester City. Winners of two out of the last five league games, the Lions are capable of pulling the upset. They can get their inspiration from Norwich City, the last-placed club at the table currently, who defeated Manchester City back in September.

Aston Villa will be powered by their fans and their homegrown midfielder Jack Grealish, who is having a great season wherein he is on pace to score double-digit goals for the first time in his career.  

Players to Watch:

Jack Grealish (6 goals, 5 assists), Wesley Moraes (5 G, 1 A), Anwar El Ghazi (3 G, 4 A), John McGinn (3 G, 2 A), Tom Heaton (4 clean sheets).  

Manchester City

On paper, Manchester City is the most talented team in the English Premier League. However, they are having a down season as they currently just sit third in the table behind Liverpool and Leicester City.

Pep Guardiola’s men already have five defeats in the league this term compared to just four total loses last season. Even with their current form, Manchester City is loaded with talent and they can field a strong starting lineup despite playing their third game in eight days.

Players to Watch:

Raheem Sterling (11 G, 1 A), Sergio Aguero (10 G, 2 A), Gabriel Jesus (8 G, 2 A), Kevin De Bruyne (7 G, 12 A), Riyad Mahrez (5 G, 6 A), Bernardo Silva (5 G, 4 A), Ederson (6 CS).
