Aston Villa vs Man City Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Man City are favourites to defend their English League Cup title when they face Aston Villa at Wembley Stadium. City have already thrashed Villa this season and are set for another comfortable victory on Sunday.

Aston Villa Form


The EFL Cup has been a welcome distraction for Aston Villa this season as they are currently battling relegation in the Premier League. They overcame Leicester City 3-2 on aggregate to book their place in the final. 

The Villans have struggled in recent weeks and are currently on a three-match losing run. Dean Smith’s men head into Sunday’s final off the back of a 2-0 Premier League defeat to Southampton in a fixture where they finished with just one attempt on target.

Aston Villa have one of the worst defences in the EPL this season and have already been beaten 6-1 by Man City in a Premier League fixture back in December.

Aston Villa vs Man City Match Up 


Aston Villa’s major problem this season has been an inability to tighten up at the back. They should struggle against Man City’s superior attack. Villa have also found goals hard to come by lately with top scorer Jack Grealish scoring just once in his last eight matches.

Man City’s Sergio Aguero has a superb scoring record against Aston Villa with nine goals in six previous matches. He scored a hat-trick against the Villans earlier in the Premier League season and will be confident of getting on the score sheet on Sunday.
