THE TEAM NEWS

ASTON VILLA

  • Aston Villa made it two wins from three Premier League matches as they defeated Burnley to back-up their victory over Norwich.
  • Villa boss Dean Smith has moved to bring in Danny Drinkwater on loan from Chelsea and more signings are expected to follow.
  • With the season-ending injury to Wesley, Villa are short of options up front and may be forced to play a makeshift striker in this game.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Nyland; Konsa, Mings, Hause; Guilbert, Nakamba, Douglas Luiz, Taylor; Trezeguet, El Ghazi, Grealish

Unavailable: Steer (Injured), McGinn (Injured), Davis (Injured), Heaton (Injured), Wesley (Injured)

Doubtful: Kodjia (Illness), Targett (Injured)

MAN CITY

  • Manchester City made it four wins in a row in all competitions as they overcame Manchester United in the League Cup in midweek.
  • The first half performance in that game will be something Pep Guardiola wants to build on but he could make several changes to that team.
  • Guardiola played Raheem Sterling up front during the week but Sergio Aguero is likely to get the nod to lead the line in this contest.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Mendy; De Bruyne, Gundogan, David Silva; Bernardo Silva, Aguero, Sterling

Unavailable: Sane (Injured), Laporte (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Aston Villa will be desperate to bring in some new players this month after suffering a couple of major injury blows. They could face Manchester City without a recognised striker and if they pose little threat up front, the visitors should be able to take full advantage to claim a comfortable win.
