Fourth place battle: Man City vs Villa
The battle for fourth place continues in round 37 of the English Premiership with Manchester City battling it out against Aston Villa.
This is a direct battle between two teams vying for fourth place and winner will get a big boost in securing that place depending also on other results.
City go into this match having failed to score in their previous two matches against a Villa side that has maintained clean sheets in its last two matches.
Their previous match earlier in the season ended in a one all draw and this time a draw may not be a favourable result for either team.
The home team are currently a point behind their visitors and a win here will see them jump over their opponents into fourth or fifth position dependent on the Spurs/Bolton result.
A win for Villa could also see them in fourth place if Spurs fail to get a result in their match.
