Aston Villa v Manchester City, Live Sky Sports 1, Monday 8pm
The champions were 5-0 winners earlier this season at the Etihad Stadium and a repeat of that scoreline is 45/1 with Paddy Power.
I’m not so sure they’ll get five but Manchester City are focused and will want to make Manchester United work all the way for the title. United are 15 points ahead now after beating Norwich 4-0 at the weekend so City won’t want to lose another game.
Paul Lambert’s side did beat the Citizens away in the Capital One Cup 4-2 last September but that’s been the high point of their season.
Roberto Mancini side’s biggest victory on their travels was a 3-1 win at Newcastle United last December with Sergio Aguero, Javi Garcia and Yaya Toure again among the goals.
The Citizens to win 3-1 against Villa is 10/1 while City to score three or more goals in Paddy Power’s team goals market is 7/4.
I can see City winning to nil at 6/4 [Tweet this tip] and beating Paul Lambert’s side by a couple of goals. The visitors are 5/6 to keep a clean sheet or 7/2 to win by exactly two goals in Paddy Power’s online betting.
Manchester City are 1/2 favs to record their seventh away win of the campaign and they should do so comfortably.
