Aston Villa vs Man City LIVE: Latest Premier League scores and goals as Erling Haaland scores the opener

Villa will be difficult – Pep

Aston Villa host Manchester City in the Premier League, who are in desperate need of points after losing their last three games. Manager Steven Gerrard remains under heavy pressure after Wednesday’s defeat by Arsenal, in which Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli gave the Gunners a 2-1 win.

The Villans have only one win so far – 2-1 against Everton – and are second to bottom after four losses from five games. New faces could reverse their form if Leander Dendoncker and Jan Bednarek are signed on deadline day to give Gerrard’s side more top-flight experience.

However, they have a thankless task ahead of them when they take on Pep Guardiola’s Man City tonight. The champions are in frenzied form and come into play at the back a 6-0 win over newly promoted Nottingham Forest in midweek. Erling Haland is the division’s best player after scoring hat-tricks in consecutive games and looks set to continue scoring at Villa Park.

City are second in the table and with tops Arsenal taking on a resurgent Manchester United tomorrow they know there’s a chance of ending the weekend at the top of the pile if they pick up three points against Aston Villa tonight .

Follow all the action as Aston Villa meets Manchester City in the Premier League:


Aston Villa 0-1 Manchester City

59 minutes: Brilliant from Ederson! Jacob Ramsey wins the ball for Villa and launches a great counterattack. Ollie Watkins receives the ball and holds it up just enough to put the City defenders in play.

Ramsey runs to the left and Watkins pushes the ball to him. His first touch is hard, allowing Ederson to fly off his line and dive on the ball, but Ramsey is able to shoot.

The ball breaks loose and John Stones works it away.

53 mins: That could be a killer goal for Aston Villa. It was a perfect delivery from De Bruyne and an expert move from Haaland to get into position in the six-yard box.

City are more relaxed when they have an advantage that gives them more freedom to play.

50 minutes: He is inevitable. Bernardo Silva receives the ball on the right wing and puts it down to Kevin De Bruyne, who makes a backspin to the right side of the box.

De Bruyne hoists his cross over Emi Martinez’s outstretched arm to pick out Erling Haaland at the back post, where the striker taps home.

How long will it be before Steven Gerrard considers changing things up?


Second half: Aston Villa 0-0 ManCity

Kick-off: Manchester City resume play. There are no changes on either side at the break. City have scored a string of second-half goals so far this season and will need to do so again if they are to finish the day ahead of Arsenal.

For the Aston Villa part, it’s more the same. Can the home side keep City calm for another 45 minutes?

Before today’s kick-off, Erling Haaland had scored nine Premier League goals from just 105 touches, scoring one goal for every 12 touches.

This is the fewest touches of the ball per goal by a player in a Premier League season (3+ goals) since 2003/04


Halftime: Aston Villa 0-0 Manchester City

45+2 minutes: Goalless at Villa Park. Manchester City wasn’t their smooth, cool and fluid self, but that’s down to Aston Villa’s insistence on keeping them off the ball in the middle of the pitch.

The home side had a few moments of excitement, but mostly they were focused on keeping City calm. So far it works.
