MCI vs AVL Live: Match Preview
There is nervousness, there is anxiety but there is hope that the Citizens can again defend their Premier League title. Manchester City fans would have hoped that Riyad Mahrez buried that penalty against West Ham when the scores were 2-2. However, all they need is a victory to secure the title.
But it is easier said than done. Steven Gerrard, the former Liverpool captain must have charged up his troops for this one. Even if they are able to get a point and the Reds get the point at home at Wolves, the title will go to Anfield.
While for the Villains the match is not of much significance in terms of their position on the table. Before Gerrard’s arrival, there were fears that they might be in a relegation scuffle. However, they have secured their Premier League spot.

Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)
The Belgian has been the talisman for the Citizens under Pep Guardiola. It is the biggest of the season for the home side as well. He will be expected to deliver in such a big game for his side.
Emiliano Martinez (Aston Villa)
It is possible that the Villains will look to get a draw in this game. They will be playing in lower blocks than usual. Thus it could turn into a Martinez vs Manchester City game.
