Man City v Aston Villa (20:15 BST)

I thought some of the criticism of Manchester City striker Erling Haaland after Sunday’s draw with Arsenal was well over the top.

It is not Haaland’s fault City did not create enough opportunities for him – it is down to players such as Kevin de Bruyne, Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva to make those chances.

To compare Haaland to a League Two player, which is how Roy Keane described him on Sky, is just ridiculous.

It doesn’t matter who gets the goals against Aston Villa, but City cannot allow the gap to leaders Liverpool to get any bigger than three points.

Villa will make it tough for them and carry plenty of attacking threat themselves, but this is a must-win for Pep Guardiola’s side… and I think they will win.

Sutton’s prediction: 2-1.

Jimmy’s prediction: Nothing doing for Villa here! City will go 2-0 up, Villa will pull one back and push for an equaliser but then City will wrap it up with a third late on when Villa leave themselves wide open. 3-1.
