MAN CITY TEAM NEWS
Man City won in the Champions league group stage matchday 3 in the midweek but their priority now is on closing up the Liverpool’s six point gap in the league
Manchester City have yet suffered another injury blow as Rodri limped off clutching his hamstring and he’s expected to miss out
Otamendi and Stones both played at the midweek game and one of them will likely come in for the injured Rodri in central defence.
Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Joao Cancelo; Gundogan, David Silva, De Bruyne; Bernardo Silva, Aguero, Sterling
Unavailable: Sane (Injured), Laporte (Injured), Zinchenko (Injured), Rodri (Injured)
Aston Villa will come into this game with confidence after having taken seven points from their last three although this is a big step up in quality.
Boss Dean Smith will be tempted however to name the same starting line-up that has started their last three matches and done so well.
Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Heaton; Guilbert, Engels, Mings, Targett; McGinn, Nakamba, Hourihane; El Ghazi, Wesley, Grealish
Unavailable: Jota (Injured)
Doubtful: Chester (Injured)
Manchester City 4-1 Aston Villa
