Footymad preview History of the Manchester City v Aston Villa fixture

Manchester City prepare to entertain Aston Villa at City of Manchester Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Sky Blues are clearly on top, having won 45 and lost only 16 of the 77 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at City of Manchester Stadium was less than a year ago, in March 2011, with Manchester City running out comfortable 3-0 winners in a F.A. Cup match.
