BET YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE

ASTON VILLA TO BEAT

MANCHESTER CITY 5/1

West Brom were 10/1 to beat Manchester United but, even for this column, that would be a difficult bet to justify.

Aston Villa, on the other hand, were facing a team whose two previous away games in the Premier League consisted of a loss to Cardiff City and a 0-0 draw against Stoke City.

Manchester City have also won just three times in their last 11 away games and also face Bayern Munich at home in the Champions League on Wednesday, so there was a chance of them taking their eye off the ball, making Villa's price of 5/1 well worth a punt.
