Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney previews tonight’s massive Premier League match between Manchester City and Aston Villa in the video below. The football is coming thick and fast at the moment, and another big game awaits the world champions at the Etihad tonight.

Fresh off Sunday’s nil-all draw with Arsenal Pep Guardiola’s side face off against high flying Aston Villa tonight. Unai Emery’s side beat the world champions 1-nil at Villa Park earlier this season. Manchester City will be keen to make amends for that result tonight. But Aston Villa will be no pushover. Despite the fact they’ll be missing top scorer Ollie Watkins and suspended midfielder, John McGinn Villa will provide a tough test for City tonight.

The champions will come into tonight’s match with key absentees of their own. Kyle Walker, Ederson, and Nathan Ake will all miss tonight’s game due to injury. Despite their absence, it is a must win game for Manchester City. The trio’s absence gives players such as Rico Lewis, Stefan Ortega, and Manuel Akanji the opportunity to shine. With tonight’s game being a must win game, they must seize the moment to keep City’s title charge alive.

Steven Mcinerney previews tonight’s game in the video below. He looks at all of the above and gives his predicted Manchester City starting eleven and more ahead of what promises to be a big night at the Etihad Stadium.
