Aston Villa plays better outside!
With 44 points in his assets, Aston Villa have no worries about his survival. A ranking for Europe is unlikely.
Birmingham perform better as a guest than as a host. They have won 24 points abroad so far and 20 at home.
The hosts will again be without their key player Jack Grillish. Trezeguet is also injured.
Manchester City is the best guest!
Manchester City's dream of 4 titles this season evaporated on Saturday when they lost the FA Cup semi-final to Chelsea 0-1.
In the match in question, the goal positions were 5-11 in favor of the Citizens.
A week ago, Man City suffered another loss - 1: 2 from Leeds to the Premier League.
But the deserved result according to xG data should have been 2.56-0.09 in favor of the Sky Blues.
In the end, it turns out that the two defeats of Manchester, which interrupted their long series of victories, were undeserved.
They are also the best guest in the Premier League. And they have conceded only 8 goals in their 15 visits so far. Great achievement!
And they are in a series of 16 victories as a guest in all tournaments! Writing 5 clean nets in the last 6 of them.
Aguero and De Bruyne are injured.
Forecast for Aston Villa - Man City
Among other things, tradition dictates a seamless victory for Manchester City in this match.
The Citizens are in a series of 6 consecutive victories against Birmingham in all tournaments with a total goal difference of 21-2.
And after the shoot last week, Man City are unlikely to want to give new hopes for the title to their fellow United.
And the guests will look for the victory to keep their leadership at the top of the Premier League.
However, they will also have one thing in mind for the upcoming League Cup final next weekend.
And lately, both teams have been selected in terms of performance.
Like Manchester City, they are in a series of 7 games in which they have not scored more than 2 goals.
Success for the guests in a tight match is the logical prediction here. Ie victory in the championship!
