Pep Guardiola will make four substitutions, and the £47 million maestro will start: Man City lineup prediction against Aston VillaIn anticipation of Wednesday night’s matchup between Manchester City and Aston Villa, we have endeavored to forecast their starting lineup.

Following their 3-3 stalemate with Tottenham Hotspur, Pep Guardiola may make as many as four substitutions for the Villa Park match.Predicted Manchester City lineup against Aston Villa

Although Ederson Moraes was responsible for Son Heung-min’s opening goal on Sunday, it is difficult to imagine anyone other than Manchester City starting in goal against Aston Villa, as predicted by our formation.

 

Despite a varied performance this season, Kyle Walker appears to be among the first names on City’s team roster, particularly when travelling away from home to face one of the Premier League’s most impressive opponents.In light of Pep Guardiola’s confirmation on Tuesday that Manchester City defender John Stones is “ready” to start against Aston Villa, Manuel Akanji could be replaced in our predicted lineup by Stones, who is valued at £47.5 million (Sky Sports).Additionally, Ruben Dias, whose play for Tony Cascarino has been characterized as “average” this season, appears determined to maintain his starting position against Unai Emery’s squad.

 

Although Nathan Ake was exposed at the back for Dejan Kulusevski’s last-ditch equalizer in the loss to Tottenham, his experience may prove advantageous in the match against the Villains in comparison to Josko Gvardiol.

 

Given Rodri’s impending suspension, Mateo Kovacic may start against Aston Villa as a makeshift No. 6 in our predicted formation for Manchester City.

 

Although Pep Guardiola acknowledged that Kalvin Phillips could potentially start, he may choose to utilize the Croatian international at the midfield’s deepest position, as he did against Wolves earlier this season.Rico Lewis, who entered the game as a substitute but delivered a lively performance against Spurs, could be rewarded with a starting position against Villa as one of his team’s advanced midfielders.

 

Consequently, Jeremy Doku, who was substituted against Tottenham due to an injury, may be benched. According to HLN, the treble-winning club are “hoping” that he will not be incapacitated for weeks due to the December fixture juggernaut.

 

Julian Alvarez, who has emerged as a favorite of Pep Guardiola this season, is likely to maintain his position at No. 10 for his side.

 

It is probable that Bernardo Silva will make another start on the right flank.Given the potential unavailability of Jeremy Doku and the suspension of Jack Grealish for the match, similar to Rodri, Phil Foden appears to be the sole feasible alternative at left wing.

 

Erling Haaland will be looking to make amends for Tottenham following a wasteful performance in front of the net.

 

Predicted Manchester City lineup against Aston Villa: Ederson, Walker, Stones, Dias, Ake, Kovacic, Lewis, Alvarez, Haaland, Bernardo Silva, Foden
