Pep Guardiola's side went into the match full of confidence having won four of our first five league matches this season, with the 3-3 draw at Newcastle United the only blemish on our record to this point.
On the other hand, Villa had just three points having won one and lost four of their opening five fixtures.
This was City's first visit to Villa Park since the Bernardo Silva wonder goal that sealed a 2-1 victory in 2021/22.
How would this match play out?
We are keeping the game's final result quiet in order to give fans who want to watch the full game without knowing the score in advance the chance to enjoy the re-run.
