  • No Watkins no chance

  • Since around Christmas, Villa have been a bit Jekyll and Hyde, but for a game like this, they should be fired up. I do think City will win, but an early away goal or a late equalizer after being 1-0 could spell panic for City who really cannot afford to drop any more points.
