Manchester City – Aston Villa
Manchester City will play for the Premier League title when they host Aston Villa on Sunday. Pep Guardiola’s team is aware that a win against the Villans would make them champions. Let’s preview it in our best soccer bets.
The situation in the Premier League is pretty simple right now. Man City lead the table with 90 points while Liverpool are second with 89. It’s a terrific opportunity for the Cityzens to win their 8th title so far.
It won’t be an easy one for Manchester City, though. Aston Villa are not a weak team and Guardiola’s boys are going to be nervous in this one. They will be aware that most likely they will lose the title if they make a mistake. That’s something which could cause them to be incredibly insecure in this last game.
In their last match Man City missed a great chance to move much closer to the title. The Cityzens only won a point after a 2-2 draw against West Ham in London. That’s why Guardiola could make some changes in his starting eleven. Ruben Dias missed the last game because of injury, but John Stones and Kyle Walker could be back in the squad for Villa. Meanwhile Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling could be back in the line-up after not playing a single minute against the Hammers.
Aston Villa has the chance to win the title for Liverpool here. The team is managed by the Reds’ legend Steven Gerrard and for him it’s a great motivation to win a point or three at the Etihad. The Villans could even move up in the table if they shockingly win on Sunday. Right now Aston Villa are 14th in the standings with 44 points.
That’s the best soccer bets for the Premier League fixture between Manchester City and Aston Villa. Will City become champions again? They need to win this one if they want to do it.
