Manchester City v Aston Villa: what the stats say

Manchester City have won 17 of their last 18 Premier League home games against Aston Villa (L1), winning the last 13 in a row since a 2-0 loss in April 2007.

Following their 1-0 win at Villa Park in December, Aston Villa are looking to secure their first league double over Manchester City since the 1962-63 campaign.

Aston Villa have won just one of their last 30 away league games against reigning top-flight champions (D6 L23), beating Manchester United 1-0 in December 2009. The Villans have lost their last nine such games by an aggregate score of 29-7.

Manchester City have won 27 of their last 29 Premier League games played on a Wednesday (D1 L1), with their sole defeat in that run coming against Aston Villa in the reverse fixture. At home, they’ve won their last 19 Wednesday league games, and are unbeaten in 30 (W26 D4) since a 1-0 loss to Tottenham in May 2010.

Manchester City have won 19 of their last 21 Premier League games in April (D1 L1), and are unbeaten in 11 since a 2-1 home loss to Leeds United in 2021.

Aston Villa are unbeaten in their last five Premier League away games (W3 D2), though their last defeat on the road was in Manchester (2-3 v Man Utd in December). The Villans last had a longer unbeaten run away from home in the competition between November 2008 and February 2009 (7).

 

Aston Villa’s shot conversion rate is 14.4 per cent this season, their highest on record (since 1997-98) in a single Premier League campaign. In the same timeframe, their record of 14.4 shots-per-game is their third highest in a season, after 2002-03 (16.2) and 2001-02 (14.7).

Leon Bailey scored Aston Villa’s winner against Manchester City in the reverse fixture – the last Villa player to score home and away league goals against the Citizens in the same campaign was Juan Pablo Angel in 2003-04.

Moussa Diaby has been involved in four goals in his last four Premier League appearances for Aston Villa (1 goal, 3 assist), despite starting just one of these games.

Ollie Watkins has scored nine goals away from home in the Premier League this season – the last Aston Villa player to net double figures on the road in a single top-flight campaign was Tony Hateley in 1965-66 (16).
