Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen has predicted on Colossusbets.com that Manchester City will win against Aston Villa this weekend.
City will take on Villa away from home at Villa Park in the Premier League on Sunday, and Owen believes that the visitors will pick up all three points.
“Villa fans will be hoping that new manager Remi Garde can work some magic, and quickly, when they host Man City at the weekend because their prospects look pretty bleak otherwise,” the former England international wrote on Colossusbets.com.
“City have coped remarkably well with injuries to key men Aguero and Silva, and impressed again in a 3-1 win at Sevilla on Tuesday night, while Villa are rock bottom, their only league win coming on the opening day of the season at Bournemouth.
“I take City to win by two clear goals, whether 2-0 or 3-1, and I have to have Any Other Away (AOA) on my side, too.”
Hosts Aston Villa will head into Sunday’s encounter on the back of a 3-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur away from home at White Hart Lane in the Premier League.
The Villans are at the foot of the league table at the moment with just four points from 11 matches, four points behind 17th-place Bournemouth.
The match against City will be new manager Remi Garde’s first in charge of Villa, and it will be interesting to see how his team play.
City will be firm favourites to win against Villa and maintain their march towards the Premier League title.
The Citizens are currently at the top of the league table with 25 points from 11 matches.
