Manchester City has started pressing down on Chelsea at the top of the Premier League 2021-22 standings and could very well take the top spot after the matches in the mid-week pan out. City has nine wins from 13 matches and a total of 29 points to its name. That is just one point adrift of where Chelsea is at the moment. This next match against Aston Villa is anything but straightforward, though.
Aston Villa has won its first two matches under Steven Gerrard and is experiencing the 'new manager bounce'. This test against Manchester City is going to be more severe than anything that Gerrard has faced so far and it will take something truly remarkable for Villa to walk away from this with anything at all. The football betting sites are favoring Manchester City very heavily to win this match.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Aston Villa vs Manchester City Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Villa Park, Birmingham on the 1st of December 2021.
Manchester City is in terrific form and has now won its previous five matches across competitions. This time around the mid-season is when Manchester City really starts to put its foot down and distance itself from all other challengers. With a place in the next stage of the UEFA Champions League locked up, its focus is now on the Premier League and we don't see it slowing down against Aston Villa. You should know that Villas has been quite at home (three wins so far) and is experiencing some solid results under Gerrard. A tough fight from the home team is likely but we don't see it being able to pick up a point against the superior City team.
Bet on Manchester City to win.
Aston Villa has scored in every home game that it has played this season and Gerrard has stated his ambition of making Villa Park an absolute fortress. This indicates his team will be playing some attacking football in this match against Manchester City as well. City, of course, has a great attack and is not going to be kept quiet for any significant duration of time. We think there is a great chance that both teams will end up scoring in this match.
