City Return to Winning Ways

Manchester City had to settle for a draw when they faced Arsenal at the weekend. The game didn’t live up to its billing as it finished 0-0. Pep Guardiola’s side dominated possession and created better chances against the Gunners. Hence, they have the quality to get the better of Aston Villa. Therefore, we are backing the home side to win the match.

Emery’s men were superb when they beat City earlier in the season. They shut down Pep’s attack, but repeating that feat at the Etihad seems unlikely. Manchester City have won 27 of their 34 home games in the league since the start of last season. The Villains have lost their last 10 league matches at this ground.

Villa’s Visits to the Etihad See Goals

For the second of our Manchester City vs Aston Villa, we are backing both teams to score over 2.5 goals at odds of 1.79 with bet9ja’s GG and over 2.5 combined market. This bet has won in four of the last six head-to-heads between these sides. The stats show those matches have seen an average of three goals, with Manchester City scoring 1.83 and Aston Villa 1.17.

City had scored in 57 consecutive home matches before the 0-0 draw with Arsenal. Pep commented on Arsenal’s low defensive block in the post-match press conference. As Aston Villa favour playing with a high defensive line, we should see a more open game.

Emery’s side have been averaging 2.07 goals per Premier League game in this campaign, which makes them the 5th highest-scoring side in the division. They have found the net in eight of their last nine league matches on the road.

Bet 2: GG & over 2.5 goals @ 1.79 Bet9ja

Corner Count Set to Soar

The third of our tips for this Premier League match is over 10.5 corners in the match. Manchester City have won the most corners in England’s top flight with an average of 7.79 per game. This climbs to 8.27 when playing in front of their fans. While they rank second lowest in corners conceded, Villa are capable of contributing to the overall match tally.

Aston Villa won six corners when they beat City earlier in the season. There have been 11 corners or more on the last four occasions that Villa have visited the Etihad. Those matches have seen an average of 16 corners per game.

Bet 3: Over 10.5 corners in the match @ 1.87 Bet9ja

Foden Finding the Finishing Touch

The last of our picks for this match is for Phil Foden to score at odds of 2.85. Erling Haaland is City’s main goal threat, but Foden has gone up a level this season. His ability to find pockets of space make him difficult for the opposition to pin down.

Foden has already scored 11 Premier League goals this season, making him the club’s second-top scorer. His non-penalty xG of 0.34 per 90 minutes played means he ranks in the 89th percentile when compared with all other attacking midfielders and wingers across Europe’s top five leagues. He also ranks in the top 10% for touches in the opposition box, with an average of 6.22.

Bet 4: Foden to score @ 2.85 Bet9ja
