Manchester City host Aston Villa on Saturday needing a win to keep alive their chances of finishing second in the Premier League. After a poor run of form the Citizens picked up a 2-0 victory against West Ham last weekend to keep up hope that they won’t have to play a Champions League qualifier next season

However, they will be without Vincent Kompany, Gael Clichy, Samir Nasri, and Stevan Jovetic for the encounter. The Sky Blues will also be up against a Villa side which has just beaten Liverpool in the FA Cup semi finals, and is riding high under manager Tim Sherwood. City boss Manuel Pellegrini will be hoping for a win over his counterpart in order to take some of the pressure off himself.

Gabriel Agbonlahor, Carlos Sanchez, Philippe Senderos, and Aly Cissokho all return for the midlands club, and Sherwood will have some big decisions to make over whether to change a winning side. Whoever he plays, the Villains are still likely to be underdogs in the encounter. However, were they to win they could go as many as six points clear of the relegation zone depending on other results.
