Betting Tips

The weekend saw the defending champions settle for a point in a goalless draw with title contender Arsenal, while Unai Emery’s team easily defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0.

Manchester City vs Aston Villa

One of the biggest anticlimaxes of the season occurred on Sunday during the team’s top-of-the-table matchup with Arsenal. A dull draw broke many other coupons, leaving one of Slips Tips’ bets wrecked. Neither keeper was truly disturbed.

With just nine Premier League games remaining, Liverpool emerged victorious, moving two points clear of the Gunners and three ahead of champions City. The fact that Pep Guardiola’s club has yet to defeat a team ranked in the top five this season is among the more astounding statistics to emerge from the weekend.  

If Manchester City wants to resume their title defense, that will need to change in this game, but it won’t be simple against an Aston Villa team that easily upset them in the Midlands back in December.

A few observers believed Villa’s chances of qualifying for the Champions League would diminish following a dismal run of results at the beginning of 2024, despite the team’s incredible start to the season. They are still in fourth place, though, with Manchester United and Spurs after them. They have only lost once in their last eight games.

Since moving to Villa Park, Unai Emery has done amazing things, He can once again outsmart Guardiola, and Aston Villa should be in a strong position to compete at the top level of Europe the following season.

Verdict

If Manchester City makes a mistake against Aston Villa, they will be eliminated from the competitive title battle. The Villains will be looking to secure their Champions League qualifying spot, so they hope for a favorable outcome. The bad news for Aston Villa is that Pep’s team faces significant obstacles.

Another major boost for Manchester City has come from Kevin De Bruyne’s return. However, any loss could be quite narrow. Just 12 goals have been scored in Manchester City’s last seven Premier League games, and six of those games have had fewer than three goals. Since Aston Villa’s last two games have all finished under 2.5 goals, it seems like a great deal to back under 2.5 goals at long odds.

It will be intriguing to watch whether the Villa manager chooses such a cautious position or sticks with his hazardous high line, which Guardiola’s team may exploit. Emery’s former employers, Arsenal, greatly frustrated Man City with their defensive posture.

The Lions have proven to be incredibly resilient when playing away from home, but with Watkins becoming a major doubt and their hosts having the ability to adjust their offensive lineup, we can only imagine Man City winning 14 straight at home against the visitors to resume their title defense.
