Prediction of Manchester City vs Aston Villa, The Citizens Prepare to Hold a Champion's Title Party!

Manchester City vs Aston Villa Prediction. Manchester City will have the opportunity to stage their title party in front of their own public when they host Aston Villa at the Etihad stadium on the last weekend of the Premier League on Sunday (22/5) night WIB.

Crazy Ball – Manchester City only drew 2-2 against West Ham United last weekend as they came back from two goals down to hit back with two goals of their own in the second half and secure a point from the London stadium.

The result leaves Pep Guardiola’s men still a point ahead of Liverpool, so the fate of their title is in their own hands and a win over Aston Villa could ensure they win a fourth Premier League title in five seasons.

But two Anfield legends are in the Aston Villa squad at the moment with Steven Gerrard acting as interim manager Philippe Coutinho set to lead his team-mates on the pitch to bury the reigning champions’ dream of defending their title.

Aston Villa will unfortunately go into this match on a low note as they are without a win in their last three matches, following up a 1–2 loss to Liverpool to draw 1-1 against Crystal Palace and Burnley at home.

Meeting Record

There is a long history of meeting these two teams, with Manchester City still far ahead after securing 78 wins, while Aston Villa have excelled on 57 occasions, with 41 other meetings ending in draws. The Citizens won 11 of the last 12 meetings against Villa, drew once.

Team News

Ruben Dias is the only injury problem for Manchester City, with duo John Stones and Kyle Walker likely to return.

Villa will remain without three players due to injury namely Leon Bailey, Kortney Hause and Ezri Konsa.

Player Estimate

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson Moraes; Joao Cancelo, John Stones, Aymeric Laporte, Oleksandr Zinchenko; Bernardo Silva, Rodri, Kevin de Bruyne; Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, Phil Foden

Aston Villa XI (4-3-1-2): Emilinao Martinez; Matty Cash, Calum Chambers, Tyrone Mings, Lucas Digne; John McGinn, Douglas Luiz, Jacob Ramsey; Philippe Coutinho; Ollie Watkins, Danny Ings.


Steven Gerrard will be expected to help Liverpool, but Aston Villa’s record is very poor against Manchester City as they are winless in their last 12 meetings, losing 11 times.

Manchester City have also won 11 of their last 13 home games in the Premier League. Against Aston Villa who have failed to win in their last three outings, Pep Guardiola’s motivated side should be running smoothly for the win they need here.

Score Prediction: Manchester City 4-1 Aston Villa
