Aston Villa vs Manchester City Match Preview

Aston Villa will be hoping this match is a dress rehearsal for the Carabao Cup Final – but either way, they are unlikely to find it serving as a confidence booster ahead of that potential showdown.

Both of these clubs will be largely happy with how their respective League Cup semi-final first-leg matches played out this week, the only disappointment being that they each lost the second half 1-0.

But Manchester City had scored three goals without reply before the break, forcing their neighbours and hosts United into submission before a fightback of sorts, while Villa would have been thrilled to take the lead at Leicester only to concede an equaliser in a 1-1 draw.

Thus a Wembley meeting for the English season’s first piece of major silverware between Sunday’s rivals remains distinctly possible, but firstly City are expected to win at Villa Park and ensure their faint hopes of retaining the Premier League title remain alive.

They should be too good for Villa, who exited the FA Cup away to Championship club Fulham last weekend and, unless a run of league victories is near to hand, know they will be fighting a relegation battle for the rest of the season.

Villa have a poor goalscoring record against City (see stats above) and with time running out before the weekend for them to make a striker signing to cover for long-term injury casualty Wesley, Pep Guardiola’s defence could be in for one of its less arduous afternoons.
