Villa and City played out a goalless draw at Villa Park in the Premier League.
Former City forward Marsh was following the game, and this is what he made of the performances of the two teams.
Poor football match, nothing to choose yet between top & bottom HT 0-0— Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) November 8, 2015
De Bruyne never a center forward, Pelligrini might need to change that again...bring on Kelechi— Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) November 8, 2015
Big two points dropped by City. Pelligrini at fault. Poor decisions after Bony injured— Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) November 8, 2015
>No, playing at home didn't even have a single shot on target!! Missed chances by City nothing to do with Villa! https://t.co/WJG9wD4oPd— Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) November 8, 2015

Over the course the 90 minutes at Villa Park, the Villans had 41% of the possession, took three shots of which none was on target, and earned three corners.
Manuel Pellegrini’s visiting side had 59% of the possession, took 13 shots of which just three were on target, and earned eight corners.
The Citizens were arguably the better team and certainly made most of the attacking moves, but one must acknowledge the defensive performance of Villa.
Villa manager Remi Garde will have been pleased with the point his side picked up against arguably the strongest team in the Premier League.
