Manchester City resume their Premier League fixtures this week following the humiliating self-destruction of the Super League proposals this week.


City will be determined to get fans back on side in the coming weeks after becoming one of the first teams to withdraw from proposals that collapsed on Tuesday evening.

Boss Pep Guardiola came out staunchly against the proposals and will now hope to refocus his players on the task at hand ahead of an important clash with Aston Villa.

City need four wins from their remaining six games to absolutely guarantee the Premier League title regardless of Manchester United's results in their final run-in.

However, anybody expecting a walkover at Villa Park may need to think again. Villa sit 11th in the table but with two games in hand that could lift them as high as seventh and into the race for European football next season. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Aston Villa v Man City on TV and online.

Our prediction: Aston Villa v Man City

You could argue the Villa players will be more up for this one than their City counterparts. City are cruising towards the title and have been for some time and, while they haven't wrapped up the league, the risk of complacency is real.

Villa's squad could be galvanised following the last few days of intense Super League drama and will be determined to strike a victory for neutral fans across the country.

Saying all of that, it's hard to bet against City on paper. Their squad may be missing a couple of jewels, but they have deep reserves to call upon and should get the job done, albeit uncomfortably.

Our prediction: Aston Villa 1-2 Man City (8/1 at bet365)
