Just as Aston Villa were celebrating the fact that they have escaped the Premier League relegation zone, Dean Smith has been dealt a double blow with the news that Tom Heaton and Wesley are both out for the season.

Team news | League Table | Odds

Heaton has been an impressive stopper for the Villans this campaign, while Wesley has led the attacking line throughout the past few months and perhaps it will fall to the Midlands side to strengthen accordingly.

It looks a tall order for the home side to get anything from a match against a Manchester City team who have won six of their ten games on the road this term, with Pep Guardiola’s side having claimed victory in six of the past seven outings.

The manager now has Sergio Aguero back from injury and he will be combined with Gabriel Jesus, while Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez and Kevin De Bruyne are all excellent attacking options when it comes to playing on the road.

City haven’t been watertight from a defensive point-of-view this season, conceding fourteen goals in ten away games and it’s clear that the absence of the injured Aymeric Laporte and the departed Vincent Kompany has left Guardiola scrambling for options in that position.

Guardiola knows that his team are unlikely to be champions of England for a third successive occasion and he will have one eye on the impending Champions League knockout stage which has now become the holy grail.

Manchester City have regularly outscored opposition teams throughout the campaign and we think you can avoid the skinny odds about the visitors winning the game and alternatively back them to win a high-scoring encounter.

On the correct score market, a 3-1 or 3-2 win could be permed to good effect, with the visitors wanting to make sure they re-qualify for the Champions League before concentrating on winning the competition.
