Man City v Aston Villa on November 17th

These two teams meet for the second time already this season, the first game was a thrilling encounter in the third round of Capital One Cup where Villa eventually came out as surprising 4-2 winners after extra time had been played.

Manchester City haven’t had the best start to the season and don’t look half as dangerous as they did last year, having said that they still find themselves second in the league and yet to be defeated this season showing us an insight into why they were crowned champions last season. With David Silva back fit and playing again City’s main injury worry comes in the form of Micah Richards who is expected to be out for around a month. After a gritty performance against Spurs last weekend which saw City come back from a goal down to win 2-1 City will be looking to build on that and get back to winning ways after several draws in their previous games.

Villa find themselves hovering above the relegation zone and will be angered after missing out on points after letting a two goal lead slip when they lost 3-2 to Man United at the weekend, previous to the defeat against United Villa had managed three wins on the bounce at the expense of Southampton, Sunderland and Swindon in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup. Benteke the youngBelgiumhas been in outstanding form and Villa fans will be hoping he can produce another good performance if they wish to take anything from Saturday’s game. The only injury worry is Striker Darren Bent who has missed the passed few games through an ankle injury.
