Confirmed - Manchester City line-up v Aston Villa

Here is how Manchester City line up for the Premier League clash at Villa Park this afternoon, kick-off at 15:00.

Starting Team: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Nastasic, Kolarov, Nasri, Fernandinho, Toure, Milner, Negredo, Dzeko

Subs: Pantilimon, Richards, Lescott, Clichy, Garcia, Navas, Jovetic

City know that three points against Aston villa will push them closer to the top of the table, increasing the momentum they have built up following a superb performance in the Manchester derby.

City don’t have great stats on the road this season taking just one point from a possible six with two goals scored and three conceded but they are playing a side that have lost both of their home matches so far this season.

Aston Villa have over double the number of wins at Villa Park in meetings between these sides but city have secured back-to-back victories in this league fixture over the last two seasons.
