LIVE: Aston Villa vs Manchester City – Pep Guardiola’s men look to put European Super League debacle behind them and strengthen their grip on top spot against Dean Smith’s European hopefuls

Aston Villa welcome Manchester City to Villa Park for tonight’s second instalment of Premier League football.
