The reasons why Jack Grealish and Rodri will not play tonight against Aston Villa for Manchester CityTonight at Villa Park, Manchester City hosts Aston Villa in a Premier League match that is certain to be quite entertaining. However, Pep Guardiola will be without Jack Grealish and Rodri.

Both the England and Spain internationals will be sidelined as the Citizens attempt to snap a three-game losing streak in the Premier League.

 

 

The reasons why Jack Grealish and Rodri will not play against Aston Villa for Manchester City

The Manchester City No. 10 and the Manchester City No. 16 have each received a one-game suspension.

 

Grealish and Rodri each received their fifth yellow card of the 2023/24 season against Tottenham in a 3-3 draw on Sunday.

 

They are thus subject to a one-match suspension.Grealish, specifically, will undoubtedly be extremely irritated with himself, as he cautioned against recklessly kicking away the ball after Simon Hooper blown for a freekick.

 

Additionally, the 28-year-old has been deprived of a start against his former club at Villa Park, as Jeremy Doku’s injury is uncertain.

 

Despite Grealish’s considerable aptitude, we believe Guardiola will be considerably more perturbed by the absence of Rodri.Three games were docked against the Spaniard earlier this season due to a straight red card he received during the 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest during a confrontation with Morgan Gibbs-White.

 

As a consequence, Rodri was unable to participate in matches against Newcastle in the Carabao Cup, Wolves, or Arsenal in the Premier League.

 

The fact that Manchester City unexpectedly lost all three matches at the Etihad Stadium demonstrates the player’s £62.8 million value.

 

Guardiola suggested that Kalvin Phillips, who is considering a move away from Manchester City in January, could earn an unusual start in Rodri’s absence. Mateo Kovacic and Rico Lewis are also candidates to fill in.
