Man City will host Aston Villa in match 31 of the EPL at home

EPL giants Man City will host Aston Villa in match 31 of the English Premier League on Wednesday(03rd April 2024) at Etihad Stadium. Pep Guardiola-led Citizens are placed third in the points table standings with 64 points after 29 league matches, on the other hand, Unai Emery-led Villans hold the fourth place in the EPL points table with 59 points in 30 league games. Both sides have been separated by five points from each other in the ongoing EPL campaign, and this is going to be an intriguing fixture where City will be eyeing to grab three clean points against Aston Villa to reduce the gap between them and the table topper Liverpool.

Man City shared a point against Arsenal in one of the most talked-about matches of the EPL in their last league fixture on Sunday(31st March). The Citizens smashed 12 shots against Arsenal but failed to convert any one of them into goal and had to settle with a point against the Gunners. Aston Villa performed brilliantly and secured three clean points against Wolves in their last league match, beating the Visitors by 2-0. Thanks to the goal courtesy of Diaby and Konsa who guided Villa to notched their 18th league win. In the last 5 league matches, the 9-time EPL winner Man City hasn't got the results they were expecting, winning three matches out of 5 matches, their recent two games ended in a stalemate. Aston Villa won their last 3 matches out of the last five matches in which there one match ended in a draw and one in a deadlock.

In their last head-to-head meeting in December 2023, Aston Villa stunned the Citizens at home and won 1-0 against them, with the goal courtesy of Leon Bailey in the 74-minute of the game and bagging three crucial points under their belt. Guardiola’s troops have dominated the home turf with 17 out of 18 match wins against Villa, though their 57 goals consecutive home games streak had been shattered against Arsenal in a deadlock battle. Nonetheless, City is going to be the favourite for this contest and winning this game guarantees them the second spot in the league until Arsenal who will face Luton Town on the same match day, have a negative result against them. 

Both sides Man City and Aston Villa have played 47 matches since 1995. In those played matches, City won 32 games and Villa just won 8 matches and their remaining fixtures ended in a deadlock.
