Tip: Aston Villa +1.5, +2.0
Units: 3/5

Aston Villa have not had a meaningful game of football since New Year’s Day when they were narrowly beaten by Manchester United, with COVID-19 cases sweeping through the camp and they had to play a youth team in their FA Cup third round clash against Liverpool.

However, the Villans will be back in action on 20 January when they head to the Etihad Stadium and our prediction is that the Midlands side can give the Premier League title favourites a decent game in this encounter.

Aston Villa Huge Betting Odds to Beat Man City

Aston Villa are the big betting outsiders to win this game although they will be well rested and our tip is for the visitors to run Manchester City close, especially as the home team will be feeling the pinch of playing their third game in the space of a week.

Jack Grealish has been one of the stand out performers in the Premier League this season, although the bottom line is that the Villans have won five and drawn one of their eight away games this season, with recent results offering plenty of encouragement.

Before losing at Old Trafford, there was an unbeaten run of five games including a 1-1 draw at Chelsea, while Villa also made short work of West Brom and Crystal Palace.

City Looking For Any Kind of Premier League Win

Manchester City are Premier League title favourites and have Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling back to offer some cutting-edge in attack, although they might have to settle for a close margin of victory against fresh opponents.

Pep Guardiola is likely to rotate the team for this clash and that could mean Kevin de Bruyne is given the night off, while it will be interesting to see whether the manager continues with three at the back, pushing Joao Cancelo further forward.
