Pep Guardiola’s side sit 17 points behind league-leaders Liverpool coming into this game and will be hoping they can stop the gap from widening with a win today. They’ve lost just one of their last nine matches in all competitions, winning the other eight, including the last four in a row. After Watford’s win over Bournemouth earlier, Villa have dropped into the relegation zone but can get back out of it if they avoid defeat.
