This fixture begins at 4p.m on Sunday, and it will be shown live on Sky Sports. 

Team News/Form

Man City were made to sweat in a 2-2 draw with West Ham at the London Stadium last time out. West Ham’s late own goal earned Pep Guardiola’s side a vital point in the title race. But the loss ended the Citizen’s five-match winning streak in the Premier League. Aston Villa plays their game in hand against relegation-threatened Burnley on Thursday evening. The Villans are hoping to bounce back from a two-match winless run following a 2-1 loss against Liverpool and a 1-1 tie with Crystal Palace. 

On the injury front, City defender Kyle Walker could return from his recent injury. Although, the game comes too soon for John Stones and Ruben Dias, who are ruled out with thigh injuries. For Villa, the pair of, defender Ezri Konsa (knee) and midfielder Kortney Hause (chest) have been ruled out for the rest of the season. 

Match Winner Betting Odds

The pre-match odds for Man City vs Aston Villa show the hosts as clear favourites to secure the three points needed to clinch the title. In contrast, a Villa win appears unlikely as they have failed to beat the Citizens in their last 12 meetings, with one draw. 10Bet currently have the best odds for a Villa upset at 21/1. Even a draw appears unlikely, although, the Villans are unbeaten in four of their last five matches in the Premier League. As a result, VBet are offering 81/10 odds for a tie. But, as City have one hand on the Premier League title, and considering they have won their last four home matches, we are backing the Citizens to win. The best odds for a home victory come from SpreadEx, who are offering 1/5 odds. 

Total Goals Betting

To add more value in the betting markets in the City vs Villa clash, we are tipping plenty of goals to come at the Etihad. Firstly, there is some value on backing over 2.5, considering Villa have seen three or more goals scored in four of their last five away matches. Also, three of the last four meetings between the sides have ended 2-1 in favour of City. Due to this, there is some value in backing Bet365’s 1/ 2 odds for over 2.5 goals. However, our tip is to go higher and go for over 3.5 goals this weekend. City has seen over 3.5 in their last six home matches, and they have been free-scoring, netting 21 goals in this run. SBK have the best value for over 3.5 at 22/19. 

Anytime Goalscorer Bets

In the goalscorer markets for City vs Villa, there are good picks from both sides. Firstly, Villa striker Ollie Watkins has found some late-season form, netting three in his last four matches. Against City, Watkins could be a good outsider option, with Unibet providing 11/2 odds for the strike to score again. But, our anytime goalscorer pick comes from City’s squad. Kevin De Bruyne has been in good scoring form recently, netting four in the 5-1 win over Wolves last week. In addition, the Belgian has three goals in his last six home matches. As a result, we are backing more De Bruyne goals, with SBK offering the best odds at 25/19.
