Manchester City v Aston Villa: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time and how to watch the Premier League clash on BT Sport

Champions Manchester City face Premier League new boys Aston Villa for the first time since 2016. Can Pep Guardiola’s men close the gap at the top of the table before Liverpool play on Sunday?

After gaining ground on table-toppers Liverpool last weekend, Manchester City return to Premier League action intent on piling more pressure on the Reds ahead of their meeting with Tottenham on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola’s Premier League champions bounced back from a shock home defeat to Wolves with a comfortable win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park last time out and they will be desperate to continue their momentum against Dean Smith’s men.

Will in-form Villa cause a monumental upset in Manchester? Or will City kick on after a stuttering start to their title defence?
