Man. City prepare to entertain Aston Villa at City of Manchester Stadium on Tuesday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Sky Blues are clearly on top, having won 43 and lost only 16 of the 75 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at City of Manchester Stadium was less than a year ago, in May 2010, with Man. City running out comfortable 3-1 winners in a Premier League match.

FootyMad's prediction ...
The current home form displayed by Man. City is obviously none too clever, but, with the current standing of Aston Villa, I firmly believe this match can only produce a victory for the Sky Blues. Home Win
|Man. City||4 games since last home draw.|
|Aston Villa||Lost each of the previous 3 away matches.|
Not won in previous 6 away matches.
Last drawn game 7 outings ago.
