Man City vs Aston Villa injury and team news as five out and six doubts

Manchester City haven't had much time to recover from Sunday's draw against Arsenal.

Manchester City will continue their push for a fourth straight Premier League title when they host Aston Villa at the Etihad on Wednesday. Pep Guardiola's side are now three points off league leaders Liverpool after drawing 0-0 at home to Arsenal on Sunday.

It's a tight turnaround through the Easter weekend and City's players have barely had a chance to catch breath before turning focus onto Villa. It also means that those who missed Sunday's draw face a tight race to be available, while Nathan Ake's injury on the day puts him in doubt.

Villa will enjoy the extra day's recovery, having beaten Wolves 2-0 on Saturday, but did not get through their last fixture without issues and top-scorer Ollie Watkins could be absent. He and a few others from both sides will be assessed late on and ManchesterWorld has rounded up the latest injury news ahead of the clash.
