Aston Villa’s dominant win over Manchester City analysed | Where is it going wrong for Pep’s side?

Pep Guardiola admitted Manchester City are currently “struggling” after their 1-0 loss at Aston Villa on Wednesday night left the Premier League champions winless in their last four league matches, down in fourth place and six points off the pace of leaders Arsenal.

Leon Bailey’s deflected strike earned Villa a deserved 1-0 win over City, while also maintaining their perfect home record this season, and Guardiola said the credit belonged to Unai Emery’s team on the night, but admitted he had much to think about to get their title defence back on track.

  1. too much hullabaloos.I just laugh even fans that are not villa fans are happy because city lost to villa. that shows how much most football fans are bitter about city success in recent years. The season isn’t over yet stop over celebrating because city is struggling, why you guys don’t focus on the team you supporting but more concern about city? if city winning games most of these so called football fans are mute, as soon city starts to drop points or lost games, then you see them all over bla bla bla. for sure even city don’t win the league this season fair enough, city already dominate the league back to back for the past 3 seasons, so stop acting like city has been struggling for the past seasons. what about you guys that your clubs have been struggling to win trophies, why don’t you focus on the team you support ? I wonder why these folks cares too much about city yet they are not city fans. This shows clearly city has been a torn in their flesh in this recent years and they are finding a way to get rid of city dominance, chill up guys, the league is not over yet, City will still fight for it if not this season we shall come back stronger next season.

  2. As a Villa fan it was a brilliant night but for us to win the league is highly unlikely, we're too inconsistent away from home recently losing to Forest and drawing with Bournemouth respectively.
    A top 4 challenge is definitely on the cards and that is quite a miracle considering we were in the championship a few seasons back and just about stayed up the season after….just over a year or so back we couldn't win a game until Emri arrived….be tough against Arsenal Saturday… hopefully we continue this run and not come back down to earth with a bang…UTV

  3. Aston Villa proved that the hardest battle against City is a mental one. I can’t remember a spell of play where it looked like they lost their composure. Unreal performance

  4. I don't think it's going wrong for pep I think city player are starting to be like Man United players they think since the club has won the treble and is dominating the league all the other teams will bow down to them and they are finding out just like United have teams in the EPL don't bow down the go all out to try and win. City players just think they are untouchable and they aren't. Actually I like seeing city struggle and see other teams other teams win the league.

  5. It didn't go wrong for ManC, it just went right for VIlla. Villa's rise up the table is portrayed as a fortuitous result of other teams underperforming which is evident of the media agenda of bias. Stats are propaganda……strategy, performances & consistency are the critical factors in league position. Villa were 100/1 to win the league just a few weeks ago, now they are 25/1 & 11/12 to finish top 4.
