29/1 – Aston Villa v Manchester City Bet Builder Tip & Stats

Aston Villa betting tips

Manchester City continue the defence of their Premier League title at a rejuvenated Aston Villa on Wednesday 1 December.

We have gone through the stats to pick out a bet builder tip for this match, which kicks-off at 8.15pm.

Since Steven Gerrard replaced Dean Smith as the Villa boss a fortnight ago, they have won two games on the bounce having previously suffered five defeats in a row. That has lifted the Villains up to thirteenth place and seven points clear of the relegation zone.

Manchester City were surprisingly beaten 2-0 at home by Crystal Palace at the end of October but have since won three straight Premier League games to sit just one point behind leaders, Chelsea.

Here is what we are going for to make up our Bet Builder:

Aston Villa v Manchester City Bet Builder Tip

  • Ollie Watkins – to have 2 or more shots

ODDS – 29/1 with Paddy Power


Over 2.5 goals

With both sides coming into the game off the back of weekend wins, it should make for a fascinating game at Villa Park. We predict goals, especially with the firepower City possess and it will be a real test for Steven Gerrard and his managerial credentials.


Riyad Mahrez – anytime goalscorer

Riyad Mahrez has only found the net for City twice in the league this season but is blessed with huge ability. With Jack Grealish and Phil Foden both doubts for this game, it might be the time for the Algerian to shine with a goal.


Ilkay Gundogan – to have 1 or more shots on target

Ilkay Gundogan scored his third goal of the campaign on Sunday at West Ham and proves a constant threat when City are in form. He can trouble Martinez in the Villa goal.


John McGinn – to have 1 or more shots on target  

Since Steven Gerrard joined Aston Villa, John McGinn has been in terrific form and scored their late winner at Crystal Palace at the weekend. He enjoys getting forward and tries his luck from anywhere around the box.


Ollie Watkins – to have 2 or more shots

The hard-working Ollie Watkins will prove a thorn in the City defences side, especially from set-pieces. He is tough to mark at corners and crosses and should have a couple of efforts at least.
