The Astonishing Reality of a Pep Guardiola Team

Robbie Savage has tipped Manchester City to get back to winning ways by beating in a must-win game for Pep Guardiola’s side against Aston Villa on Wednesday (December 6). The reigning Premier League champions head into tomorrow’s game at Villa Park following a frustrating 3-3 draw against Tottenham Hotspur. Manchester City are third in the league, three points behind leaders Arsenal. They face a Villa side that have made a remarkable start to the campaign, sitting fourth and just a point behind the Cityzens. Savage touched on City’s defensive vulnerabilities that have seen them concede 10 goals in their last four outings. He told PlanetSport: “It’s a big game for Manchester City. Obviously now they’re chasing Arsenal at the top of the Premier League. They’ve conceded 10 goals in their last four games which is not like Manchester City at all.” Villa earned a point with a last-gasp equalizer in a 2-2 draw with Bournemouth last time out. Savage expects there to be a ton of goals and stressed how Guardiola’s men need to win: “Aston Villa with that draw against Bournemouth. But on this occasion, I think City need to win and that’s quite unbelievable to say about a Pep Guardiola side. On that basis, I think there will be goals. I’m going for 3-2 Man City.” The Cityzens haven’t lost to Villa in any competition since 2013. But, they were held to a 1-1 draw at Villa Park last season and Unai Emery’s Villains could be tricky opposition for the visitors tomorrow.
