Aston Villa, who will climb out of the relegation zone with a win or a draw, are going for it against the defending champions at home. The hosts are fielding a relatively attacking lineup spearheaded by Andreas Weimann and Christian Benteke in an attempt to imidate Southampton's impressive feat against Manchester City. It's probably not going to happen, but they can dream, right?
City will be using the same team that beat Chelsea 2-0 last weekend with the notable exception of Sergio Aguero, who picked up a knee injury in training, leaving Carlos Tevez in his stead. Captain Vincent Kompany is still missing, so it'll be Matija Nastasic and Kolo Toure going up against Benteke in the centre.
Aston Villa starting lineup (4-4-2): Brad Guzan; Joe Bennet, Nathan Baker, Ciaran Clark, Matthew Lowton; Gabby Agbonlahor, Ashley Westwood, Fabian Delph, Charles N'Zogbia; Andreas Weimann, Christian Benteke.
