Sergio's stunners boost City
Manchester City take on Aston Villa in the late afternoon match on Sunday. Mancini will be hoping that City can improve on their alarming league form. They have only won just one of their last six league away games (W1,D2,L3).
In that six game run, City have only scored three goals. They were finding the net for fun earlier in the season but they have struggled since the Christmas period. Under 2.5 goals is 4/5 but Villa have a weak defence and they have not won at home since a 3-2 victory over Norwich on Bonfire night last year.
I would not be backing Aston Villa to keep a clean sheet at 7/2, against City.
A Claret and Blue home win is 9/2, the draw is 23/10 and an away win is 8/11. If Villa don't win this match, it will be their longest run of home games without a win in Premier League history (7).
If you fancy backing Villa, you can take advantage of 11/4 for Aston Villa draw no bet and Villa or the draw is 23/20.
There have been rumors of a protest against Mcleish by the home fans, many of them showed dissent when he arrived from their arch rivals Birmingham City.
There have been reports of player unrest at Villa, N'Zogbia has not been doing his talking on the pitch but he has been venting his frustrations on Twitter. He is 11/2 to score anytime and there is no doubting that the player has many qualities but he is temperamental.
Darren Bent has scored seven goals in twelve Premier League games against Man City. He is 13/2 to score the first goal and he is a classic goal poacher. He is not a pretty footballer, but he never has a problem finding the back of the net.
Aguero helped inspire City to a 3-0 victory (12/1) against Fulham. He is one of the best talents in the Premier League. He often takes the spot-kicks and he is 4/1 to open the scoring. This time last season, it was Carlos Tevez doing the talking on the pitch, now he is in exile and the club are relying upon Aguero's goals.
Seventy-nine percent of the goals Man City have conceded have been in the second half, a league high proportion. You can back Man City at 11/1 to lead at half time and not win, they have been poor away from home and Villa have something to prove of late.
Man City have the players to take Villa apart. City -2 goals can be backed at 12/1. Silva is the playmaker for Mancini. He has more Premier League assists than any other player in the league and he is 6/1 to score first.
Man City have an abundance of attacking talent and for the Match Winner, we have enhanced the price of three or more City players to score from 5/1!
