Manchester City will look to extend their winning run when they take on Aston Villa in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Pep Guardiola’s team haven’t lost a match since their 2-0 defeat by Crystal Palace in October, which has meant they entered this gameweek just a point behind leaders Chelsea in the table.

It’s likely England defender John Stones will line up for City after missing their win over West Ham at the weekend due to illness.

Explaining Stones’ absence, Guardiola said: “We need a guy with a left foot. John was not quite well the last two days, a bit sick, a fever after PSG, a change for the other guys.”

Here’s all you need to know about Villa vs Man City.

When is it?

The match will kick-off at 8.15pm on Wednesday 1 December at Villa Park.
