Pep Guardiola's men travel to Villa Park on Wednesday 1 December, with kick-off scheduled for 20:15 (UK).
After claiming five wins from five matches across November, City will be keen to maintain our rich vein of form as the hectic winter period approaches.
We currently sit just one point off the Premier League summit after Chelsea were held to a 1-1 draw by Manchester United at the weekend.
Nonetheless, another three points is far from a foregone conclusion against a resurgent Villa side who, under new boss Steven Gerrard, have claimed two wins from his two matches at the helm so far.
It leaves FPL managers with plenty to ponder ahead of Tuesday's 18:00 deadline.
As always, the Scout is on hand to provide you with one City player, one opponent and another Premier League star expected to pick up the points across Gameweek 14.
Find out who features in this week's FPL Scout Report below...
The form of Bernardo Silva (£7.3m) could prove decisive as Manchester City visit Aston Villa in Gameweek 14 of Fantasy Premier League.
The Portuguese grabbed one goal and an assist in his first six outings, but has since produced a further three goals and an assist in his subsequent six appearances.
Strikes against Burnley, Manchester United and Everton in that recent run have taken the midfielder to 59 points, second only to the 80 of Joao Cancelo (£6.7m) for City.
His 10 chances created were joint-top with Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m), while his nine shots in the box and five shots on target both ranked among the top three.
Opponent to watch
Ollie Watkins (£7.4m) is the main danger for Villa, having scored in each of their last two home matches.
Top two: Only Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez picked up more FPL points than Watkins' 168 across the 2020/21 campaign.
Premier League pick
Elsewhere, managers in search of a captain should consider Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) and Reece James (£6.3m).
Liverpool’s Salah visits derby rivals Everton having averaged 12.3 points per away match this season.
Chelsea wing-back James has 33 points in his last two road trips ahead of a clash with Watford.
Man in form: Reece James is only 36 points shy of his FPL tally for the whole of last season (112).
