Bet Live on The Premier League: Aston Villa vs. Manchester CityPublished October 4, 2014 by Amir G
The Premier League table top heats up as Aston Villa host Manchester City (5:30pm UK time).
Top Premier League teams Aston Villa and Manchester City meet today at Villa Park for an important match for the table's top (5:30pm UK time).
Aston Villa Expects Benteke
Aston Villa is currently positioned sixth in the Premier League table, sitting on 10 points composed of 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses. Their two losses came in their two last games against Arsenal and Chelsea; Villa lost 3-0 to both. Villa is yet again pitted against a giant today in the shape of reigning champion Manchester City.
Villa still remembers the 4-0 thrashing they received at the Etihad Stadium last season which further cemented City's road to the title, and they'll be looking for revenge. Striker Christian Benteke might fully return from his ruptured Achilles injury.
Manchester City Defense Flaws
Manchester City will be very keen on improving after the lackluster display against AS Roma in the Champions League. Currently positioned third in the Premier League table with 11 points (3w, 2d, 1l), City is 5 point away from Chelsea and must keep up to defend the title.
Boss Manuel Pellegrini criticized his players after the game, talking about the break in City's defense which let Roma's Totti score the equaliser. With the possible return of Christian Benteke for Villa, Pellegrini must tend to the slips in his defense. If Villa plays its cards right it can take the three points here.
