I can't believe this. Gundogan has a shot that is blocked and from the corner, he just has to tap it in but he kicks thin air. It actually goes through his legs after his header was saved.

What a miss from Gundogan. Jesus flicks the ball back to him at the penalty spot and he hits it wide. It was almost like he slipped.

It's pouring down here at the Etihad.

Traoré does well to get into the box but he can't get a shot away.

Almost 1-0. The corner comes in from De Bruyne, Rodri heads it to the front post and Martínez saves from Bernardo. It's cleared over the bar.

City just passing the ball about.
1'
And we're off.
Prev.
Genio_339323 thinks that City will win 4-1. Let's see what we have in store.
Prev.
City have been impressive in their last few matches. I wouldn't be surprised if they manage some goals tonight.
Prev.
City haven't lost to Villa since 2013. They last lost at home to them in 2012 while they last lost at home to them in the league in 2007. Villa have won 4 of the last 30 Premier League games between these two.
Prev.
A win will take City top of the league, even if it's temporarily. Villa will move 8th if they win. The Premier League is so tight at the top.
Prev.
Aston Villa XI: Martinez, Cash, Konsa, Mings, Targett, Douglas Luiz, Barkley, Traore, Grealish, McGinn, Watkins.
Prev.
Man City XI: Ederson, Walker, Stones, Dias, Joao Cancelo, De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan, Bernardo Silva, Sterling, Foden.
Prev.
Hello and welcome to the Etihad for this Premier League match. Team news to come.
