It was a frustrating evening for the Blues in the West Midlands as we went down 1-0 to the in-form Villans.
Villa Park has been a true fortress for Unai Emery’s men so far in this 2023/24 season as they clocked up 13 wins in succession on home soil heading into this contest.
They made it a record-equalling 14th victory courtesy of a Leon Bailey 74th minute deflected strike in front of the Holte End.
City had done a good job of keeping the hosts at bay despite pressure in both halves but the Jamaican won the contest and consigned City to a first defeat in two months when his effort flicked off Ruben Dias and past Ederson.
The visitors best chances both came in the opening period, Erling Haaland denied twice by Emiliano Martinez in the claret and blue goal.
