Aston Villa vs. Manchester City: Open match thread and lineups

Jan Kruger

Can Villa rebound from an ugly midweek loss in today's match against Manchester City? Stranger things have happened.

Aston Villa have a tough task ahead of them if they're to get any points out of Manchester City, as the team that crushed Manchester United last week makes their trip to Villa Park for the season. Paul Lambert is again running out a lineup that shows the scars of numerous injuries, which makes the task at hand even more difficult. But it's certainly not impossible, and we'll be here all the way. You can find Aaron's preview of the match here, and don't forget to follow us on Twitter.
