Aston Villa vs Manchester City: saturday 4/10/2014 match preview
Aston Villa vs Manchester City
Aston Villa’s momentum has been checked by consecutive 3-0 defeats by Arsenal and Chelsea but they may feel this is a good time to play Manchester City. Paul Lambert’s side won this fixture last season and they will hope that the champions are feeling sore after the disappointment of their 1-1 draw with Roma in the Champions League on Tuesday. But Manuel Pellegrini will back his forwards to produce the goods. Jacob Steinberg
