Aston Villa vs. Manchester City: 5 Key Battles for Villians Against Citizens

Manchester City take on another unbeaten team this weekend when Aston Villa comes to town.

Aston, the previous home of current Citizens James Milner and Gareth Barry, has been through multiple changes in the last six months, but Alex McLeish has them playing solid football.

The former Birmingham City boss has managed to keep Villa in the top of the table despite many feeling his side would be left wanting after the loss of both Stewart Downing to Liverpool and Ashley Young to Manchester United.

Roberto Mancini is finally showing how good of a squad he has assembled at Eastland's with the Citizens sitting at the top of the table with Manchester United. So far, David Silva has been his biggest star, as people are already looking at Silva as a possible PFA Player of the Year.

This battle of unbeaten sides will be a great matchup. Manchester City looks to be the better side by far, but if Villa can manage to win some of the personal battles in the match, they might have a decent chance of chasing a draw.
