Aston Villa vs Man City team news

Aston Villa

Aston Villa twice had to come from behind to rescue a point away at an improving Bournemouth side. Leon Bailey scored Villa's first goal in the 20th minute, and in the 90th minute, Ollie Watkins made it 2-2.

Boubacar Kamara is back from suspension and likely to go straight back into the Aston Villa starting XI on Wednesday night, but Bertrand Traore, Tyrone Mings and Emiliano Buendia will miss the game through injury.

Predicted Lineup: Martínez (GK), Digne, Carlos, Torres, Konsa, McGinn, Kamara, Bailey, Luiz, Ramsey & Watkins

Man City

Pep Guardiola will be disappointed that his side failed to take all three points from their last game against Tottenham. Despite falling behind early on, Man City went in at the break 2-1 up after Son Heung-Min's own goal was followed up by a Phil Foden effort.

Tottenham got back onto level terms before a Jack Grealish goal looked to have won the game for the home side, only for Spurs to equalise in the final minute and the game to end 3-3.

Kevin De Bruyne and Matheus Nunes are the only two injury concerns for the visitors, but Rodri and Jack Grealish both picked up yellow cards against Tottenham and are now suspended for the trip to Villa Park.

Predicted Lineup: Ederson (GK), Walker, Dias, Akanji, Gvardiol, Silva, Stones, Foden, Haaland, Doku & Álvarez

Player to Watch: Bernardo Silva

Bernardo Silva has played more of a De Bruyne role this season following the Belgian midfielder's early injury setback. The experience and creativity of the Portuguese international has made him more than an adequate replacement, with Silva chipping in with three goals and three assists in the Premier League this season.

We're backing Silva to impress once again in what should be a really exciting game for the neutral on Wednesday night as two of the best-performing teams in the league this season go head-to-head.
