While Manchester City are the most likely winners on Saturday lunchtime when they clash with Aston Villa, we find their odds of 1/10 ridiculously skinny.

Team news | League Table | Odds

Pep Guardiola’s side might have embarked on a fourteen-match winning run at the end of last season to keep themselves a nose ahead of Liverpool, although this campaign has been altogether more fraught and the Citizens have currently won just 50% of their games at the Etihad Stadium.

Yes, they might have put Watford to the sword by thrashing the Hornets 8-0, while they put four goals past Brighton at the end of August, although Tottenham left with a 2-2 draw earlier in the campaign and Wolves more recently landed a 2-0 victory.

City are already playing catch-up with Liverpool and trail their title rivals by six points after nine games played, with Aston Villa arriving in a confident mood after registering consecutive wins in the Premier League.

Dean Smith’s stock continues to rise after steering the Villans into the top flight, with the Midlands side currently sitting mid-table and they won’t be heading to the north-west with the aim of keeping things tight.

The visitors served it up against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium and should really have taken advantage of their numerical advantage before losing the game 3-2, although they more recently went to Carrow Road and enjoyed an emphatic 5-1 win.

It might be that the Villa are picked off by a dangerous Manchester City team although this game comes shortly after a Champions League engagement against Atalanta and some key players could get rested.

With this in mind, we’ll take a tentative selection of Aston Villa with a +3 goal advantage, with the visitors having already been to Tottenham this term and they led in that clash for a long part of the game.
