As one of the most engaging seasons in the recent history of the Premier League nears it’s end, Manchester City will be hosting Aston Villa on Sunday, for a virtual finale of the tournament.
Pep Guardiola would not have wanted the title race to drag on till the final match day of the season. However, a draw against West Ham meant that the Citizens dropped 2 important points, and are now just 1 point ahead of a Red hot Liverpool.
While being exceptional in its efforts to defend the Premier League title, Manchester City fans will be disappointed with the results their team has achieved in other competitions. The Citizens bowed out of the EFL Cup, FA Cup, and more recently, out of the Champions League despite enjoying a first leg advantage over Real Madrid.
The Premier League is the only piece of silverware they can now win this season. And that dream too was nearly shattered in its outing against West Ham last weekend, when it was trailing the hosts 2-0 at half-time. However, a goal early in the second half by Grealish, and an own goal by Coufal saved Manchester the disappointment, and kept its hopes of a top finish alive.
Most football betting sites are predicting a much more one-sided contest this time around, in favor of the hosts.
Much was expected of Steven Gerrard when he was appointed as the head coach of Aston Villa late last year. And despite putting up some good performances, he has been unable to bring a sea change in the fortunes of the club.
They are currently 14th on the points table, and can still aim for a top 10 finish, as it trails 10th placed Brighton by 4 points, with an extra match in hand.
For its latest fixture, Aston Villa hosted Crystal Palace last Sunday, and ended up sharing points with them with a 1-1 draw. With a fixture against relegation threatened Burnley yet to come, the fans will surely be expecting them to move up atleast a couple of notches on the table.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Manchester City F. C. vs Aston Villa F. C. Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the City of Manchester Stadium, Manchester, on 22nd May 2022.
After failing to make an impact in the Champions League, Manchester City will definitely want to end the season in a high by winning the domestic league. A draw in this match will seal the deal for them, whereas if they drop three points, they will be at the mercy of the outcome of Liverpool’s final fixture against the Wolves.
Both the teams have fully fit squads to choose from, with no fresh injury concerns, and that should enable both Guardiola and Gerrard to put their best men on the field.
We expect this to be an electric contest, with the hosts definitely holding an edge
Bet on a Draw.
Manchester City are known for their attacking style of play, and we will definitely see more of the same. 7 of the last 8 matches between both the teams across competitions have produced more than 2.5 goals. The Citizens have netted 21 goals in their last 5 Premier League games, and we are likely to see another goal fest on Sunday.
4 of the last 5 matches between the two clubs across competitions have seen goals at both the ends. Manchester City has conceded in 3 of it’s last 5 top flight games, while Aston Villa has scored in each of it’s last 4, suggesting a high possibility of a similar outcome.
