Aston Villa vs Man City predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Premier League fixture tonight

Manchester City head to Aston Villa on Wednesday night seeking to get back to winning ways as they close in on a third Premier League title in four seasons.

Villa have been well out of form of late, winning just one of their last six games, and the ongoing injury absence for Jack Grealish continues to hamper their efforts to find consistent form.

They are 11th in the table and a top-half finish would still represent a successful campaign for them, even if it comes after a significant drop-off from their form in the early stages of the season.

City have lost just once on the road all campaign and will be keen to put an FA Cup semi-final defeat behind them, which ended their hopes of a quadruple this season.
