Manchester City clash with Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon at the Etihad Stadium looking to pick up all three points in this home encounter. The Sky Blues recorded a narrow 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, so they will be eager to return to winning ways. On the other hand, the Villans come into the match on the back of a disappointing 4-2 defeat at the hands of Leicester City, so they will be looking to put up a strong fight this time around.

Manchester City Vs Aston Villa: Talking Tactics

Pep Guardiola should opt for the 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make a few changes to the starting XI. Jack Grealish will play as the left-sided wide player while Kevin De Bruyne plays from the start in the central areas.

Unai Emery will opt for the 4-4-2 formation and is expected to keep the changes to a minimum. Leon Bailey and Ollie Watkins will continue as a two-man strike team to lead the line against Man City while Emiliano Martinez operates in between the sticks.
