Aston Villa vs Manchester City 01.12.2021
Having won his first two games in charge, Steven Gerrard will be in the hunt for all three points when Aston Villa host City on Wednesday.
Expectedly, Man City have bossed past clashes between these sides with 7 wins in the last 7 meetings. However, Villa’s 6 points in the last 2 games will be a strong motivation here as they look to earn their first PL point against City since 2015.
As we approach the festive season, League fixtures will come in thick and fast, this means teams with ambitions need to avoid slip-ups during this period. With this at the back of their mind, Pep’s men will be gunning for a win to put pressure on leaders Chelsea.
Looking at how much things have changed in such a short time, we expect Villa to put up a good fight here. Based on this, we are predicting a keenly contested match with the second half producing the most goals.
