All the best odds from Paddy Power ahead of Wednesday night's Premier League clash...
Manchester City are within touching distance of their second league title in three years and can take another massive step forward if they beat Aston Villa on Wednesday night (7.45pm).
The Citizens are long odds on at 1/7 to beat Paul Lambert's side for the seventh time on the trot at the Etihad in the Premier League, as they look to go back to the top of the table with the season's climax to come on Sunday against West Ham (3pm).
With 19 goals scored and just two conceded against the Villains in their last six home meetings, City fans will be hoping for a repeat of last season's 5-0 win to calm their frayed nerves.
Paddy Power make the home side 14/1 to win 5-0. With four clean sheets in their last six home victories against Villa, it’s 5/6 that Joe Hart keeps another clean sheet, while City are 10/11 to win to nil.
City's hard-fought 3-2 win at Goodison Park last Saturday marked the blue half of Manchester’s 150th goal of the season and underlined the firepower they have up front.
Manager Manuel Pellegrini was pleased with his side's resilience as they came back to win after being a goal down, stating: "We managed the game very well, we scored three and had other chances to score. All of the players played well and all of the team deserve their merits."
The Citizens are now the highest-scoring English team in history and have the chance to finish with the best home record in the Premier League this season.
If they win their next two games they’ll have secured 52 points from their 19 home games.
Yaya Toure is the Citizens' top scorer in the division and is chasing his 20th league goal this season. The Ivorian is 7/2 to get the first goal of the game against the Villains or 11/4 to score first for his side.
City have scored one goal in 94 per cent of their home games and are evens to win both halves with Paddy Power against the Midlanders.
Bosnian international Edin Dzeko scored twice to give City all three points against Everton to bring his league tally to 14 goals. Dzeko can be backed at 11/5 to get the first goal of the game or 17/10 to score first for his team as they look to go back to the summit of the Premier League.
