Manchester City travel to Villa Park tomorrow night as Jack Grealish could potentially face his childhood club for the first time.
The Citizens have narrowed the gap on Chelsea in the Premier League table to just one point and will want to take top spot with an away win.
BETFAIR – CASH REFUND UP TO £ 50*
Villa has been boosted by new boss Steven Gerrard but does not have a good record against opponents who have lost 12 of their last 14 league games.
In those previous meetings, there have been 39 goals, or just under three goals per game.
In January 2020, City beat Villa 6-1 away as Riyad Mahrez scored a brace in the first 25 minutes, before Gabriel Jesus scored between a hat-trick from Sergio Aguero.
Dean Smith was still in charge and Grealish was also important in the game, receiving a yellow card and crossing the ball which helped create the penalty for Villa and then led to the consolation goal in extra time.
We back over 2.5 goals, Jack Grealish to score and assist against his former club at 6.41 / 1.
