 Aston Villa vs Manchester City

Manchester City will attempt to defend their title and win a remarkable fourth title in a row this year. Pep Guardiola’s all-conquering City, who also won the Champions League and FA Cup last season, will have to beat Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, and the rest of the competition to win an incredible sixth league title in seven years.

Meanwhile, Luton Town are making their Premier League debut after rising from non-league in an astonishing decade of success. They joined Championship champions Burnley and second-placed Sheffield United in gaining promotion to the Premier League.

Aston Villa have rarely been happier, even as they travel back in time to the Great Depression. Unai Emery made club history by achieving a late first in his career. Emery finally beat Pep Guardiola at the 14th time of asking as Villa equaled a club record of 14 straight home league wins, previously established in 1930-31. In the process, they dropped the treble winners to fourth place, with Villa leapfrogging them. Emery may attempt to disregard discussion of the Champions League, but no Villa team in the twenty-first century has looked as capable of finishing in the top four. If things continue like they are, this one could push for the championship.

But these are weird and troubling circumstances for Guardiola and City. The Catalan stated he believes they will retain the crown, although it is difficult for a team on its longest winless streak in six and a half years, or for one that was outplayed by the upstart contenders from the Midlands. Villa had 22 shots compared to City’s two, indicating a remarkable level of domination against the champs. A fourth match without a win ended a run of three draws and saw City reeling: they had survived wave after wave of Villa attack, but just when it appeared Emery’s statement of intent might still result in a stalemate, the electric Leon Bailey delivered the goal his excellence and ebullience deserved.

Aston Villa vs Manchester City: Villa’s home winning streak continues with a 1-0 triumph over City. Emery’s man had a superb performance from start to finish, leaving City stunned. Villa had 13 shots in the first half alone, the most against a Guardiola club in Europe’s big five divisions, and Ederson had to make great saves to keep his side in the game. Martinez also made a great double save to deny Haaland on City’s only chance of the game. The deadlock was broken in the 74th minute, when Bailey’s deflected strike caught Ederson off guard. Late in the game, Luiz also hit the post with a long-range strike. The Villans’ triumph moves them over City into third place, and they have another vital game at home against Arsenal on Saturday. City has now gone four games without a win in the league, leaving them six points behind leaders Arsenal. On weekends, they travel to Luton Town.
