Al Ittihad Stadium opens its doors to host Manchester City vs Aston Villa in the framework of the tenth round of the Premier League 2019-20.

Last season’s Premier League champions Blue Azure managed to destroy the rivals’ defenses. In the previous round, they won 2-0 at Crystal Palace, rising to 19 points, six behind leaders Liverpool, before beating Atalanta in the round. Third place in the Champions League with five goals against one goal, leading Group C with 9 points.

On the other hand, Aston Villa are 12th with 11 points, including 7 points in the last three rounds, where they drew with Burnley in the seventh round (2-2), before they beat wonderfully against Norwich City with five full goals against A goal, and then defeated Brighton in the last round two to one goal.

 Manchester City are missing Leroy Sani, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Rudy and Emerick Laporte due to injury, and the team will not miss any other player because of the suspension.

Pep Guardiola is expected to kick off the match with his usual 4-3-3 style in order to win and continue catching Liverpool in the Premier League 2019-20 so far.

Formation 4.3.3

There are no absentees at Aston Villa before the Manchester City match but Jose Ignacio Bellitero, who misses the injury, while there are no absences due to suspension.

Coach Denise Smith will not change his way of playing, and will rely on between Tyrone Mings and Bjorn Angels in the center of the defense, and will push Wesley to lead the team attack alongside Anwar Ghazi and Jack Greelish, who made a great match against Brighton.
