Man City vs Aston Villa match stats
Man City have won nine of their last 10 Premier League games against Aston Villa, including the last six in a row. Their last defeat to the Villans came at Villa Park in September 2013 (2-3). City have only lost their final league game in one of the last 13 campaigns (10 wins and two draws), going down 3-2 at home to Norwich in 2012/13. Victory for Manchester City will secure them their eighth top-flight title, the outright fifth-most in history since its inception in 1888. It would be their sixth Premier League title (outright second-most after Manchester United’s 13), and their fourth in the last five seasons. City have lost just one of their last 27 Premier League games (which includes 22 wins and four draws), and are unbeaten in 11 since losing 3-2 at home to Spurs in February. Man City have won all five of their final league games of the season under Pep Guardiola – it’s the best such 100% record for a manager in the competition’s history.
Aston Villa have lost 15 of their last 16 away league games against Man City, losing each of the last 11 in a row since a 2-0 win in April 2007.

Aston Villa have won just one of their 21 Premier League away games against the league leaders, beating Leeds United 2-1 in January 2000. The Villans are winless in their last 16 such games (two draws and 14 losses), losing the last seven by an aggregate score of 21-1. Aston Villa beat Chelsea 2-1 on matchday 38 last season – they’ve not won their final league game in consecutive campaigns since 1996/97 and 1997/98, with the second victory back then coming against that season’s champions (1-0 vs Arsenal).
