Man City vs Aston Villa lineups, team news

Guardiola is still without first choice right-back Kyle Walker due to injury and Stefan Ortega could again fill in for Ederson.

Nathan Ake is also absent, after being forced off in the draw with Arsenal, and John Stones could replace him in defence.

Man City predicted XI (4-2-3-1, right to left): Ortega (GK) — Lewis, Dias, Stones, Gvardiol — Rodri, Nunes — Foden, De Bruyne, Doku — Haaland.

Man City subs (9): TBC

John McGinn misses out as he serves the final game of a three-match ban. Matty Cash is sidelined with a thigh problem and Unai Emery will make a late call on the fitness of striker Ollie Watkins.

Aston Villa predicted XI (4-4-2 right to left): Martinez (GK) — Konza, Carlos, Torres, Digne — Bailey, Tielemans, Luiz, Rogers — Diaby, Watkins.

Man City vs Aston Villa prediction

Man City cannot afford to drop any more Premier League points as the title race continues to tighten up with Liverpool and Arsenal.

A full strength Villa side can cause problems for City — as they did with a 1-0 win in the reverse fixture in December — but some key absentees leaves Emery’s visitors lacking some edge.

Prediction: Man City 2-1 Aston Villa
