Both Kyle Walker and John Stones missed Manchester City’s goalless draw with Arsenal on Sunday afternoon with the former definitely unavailable for this week, whilst the latter has been described as a ‘maybe’.

They are accompanied on the sidelines by goalkeeper Ederson, as well as fellow defender Nathan Ake, who was forced off through injury against the Gunners at the Etihad the other day.

PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Ortega; Lewis, Akanji, Dias, Gvardiol; Rodri, Silva; Foden, De Bruyne, Grealish; Haaland

UNAVAILABLE: Ederson (Injured), Ake (Injured), Walker (Injured)

QUESTIONABLE: Stones (Injured)


The big news from Unai Emery’s pre-match press conference on Tuesday was that England international forward Ollie Watkins will not be fit and available to face Manchester City on Wednesday.

Watkins joins the likes of Tyrone Mings and Emi Buendia on the sidelines for the Villains whilst captain John McGinn is serving the final game of a three-match suspension.

PREDICTED XI (4-4-2): Martinez; Konsa, Carlos, Torres, Digne; Bailey, Douglas Luiz, Tielemans, Rogers; Jhon Duran, Diaby

UNAVAILABLE: Mings (Injured), Cash (Injured), Kamara (Injured), McGinn (Suspended), Buendia (Injured), Watkins (Injured)

QUESTIONABLE: Ramsey (Injured)


In early December, Aston Villa welcomed Manchester City to Villa Park and edged past the defending champions by a goal to nil, igniting their excellent campaign. Manchester City haven't beaten anyone by more than two goals in the Premier League in their last 18 outings. They face an Aston Villa side that are detailed and extremely effective under Unai Emery and so that record should well be extended to 19. City should come out on top but it is unlikely to be an overly convincing victory on Wednesday evening.
