  • GOAAALLLLL - ASTON VILLA 0-1 MAN CITY - Dias fires City into the lead, and it is no less than the away side deserves. Sterling's pass was perfectly timed for Dias, who ran onto the ball and whipped a left-footed shot into the bottom corner. Dias does not score many, so he has every right to celebrate that strike!

  • OOOO MYYY WORRRDDDDD - ASTON VILLA 0-2 MANCHESTER CITY - Bernardo Silva that is outrageous. Guardiola's men managed to snatch the ball back on the edge of their own box before then charging down the right wing on the counter-attack. Jesus broke free, and Villa's defence were at sixes and sevens, allowing Silva to break free at the far post. Jesus' floating pass picked him out, and Silva did the rest as he smashed his volley past Martinez.

  • GOAAAALLLL - ASTON VILLA 1-2 MANCHESTER CITY - Watkins gives Villa hope as he steers his shot into the bottom corner past Ederson. The Villa striker broke free from his marker at the near post, and he drove Douglas Luiz's corner into the back of the net. GAME ON!
