Aston Villa host Manchester City in today’s evening kick-off, with both teams short on form. Villa are coming off the back of consecutive 3-0 defeats, and face a tough challenge again today.
The champions have won just three of their six league matches so far, while they have also dropped points in their first two Champions League games. They did however win their last domestic outing, beating Hull City 4-2.
The major team news is that Christian Benteke returns to the Aston Villa squad after a six-month absence because of a ruptured Achilles.
However, his fellow striker Libor Kozak has had another operation on his broken leg and is definitely out, while captain Ron Vlaar is still sidelined with a calf injury.
Manchester City midfielder Fernando is available, having missed the last six games with a groin injury, while Joe Hart could play his 300th league game after being recalled for Tuesday’s Champions League draw with Roma.
