Phil Foden and Rodri were undoubtedly the two best players in Man City shirts during the match. The Spanish was on target in the 11 minutes to give Pep Guardiola’s men a deserving goal after missing some chances due to the brilliance of Aston Villa goalkeeper Robin Olsen.

The Spanish midfielder was picked by Jeremy Doku inside their opponent’s box and he made no mistakes as brilliantly put the ball in the back of the net before going on to assist one of Phil Foden’s three goals of the match.

It seems to be another difficult night for Man City players after Rodri’s early goal was cancelled out by John Duràn goal in the 20 minutes of the match. However, Phil Foden scored a fantastic free-kick to restore the Cityzens lead in the first half.

The Englishman scored two more goals in the second part of the game to go home with a ball in a season that could be described as the best of his football career.

The reigning Premier League champions could have scored more towards the end of the match. Jack Grealish, Mateo Kovacic, and Julian Alvarez all missed the chance to increase the scoreline.

With the victory, Manchester City are now undefeated in 24 matches across all competitions. The last suffered a defeat in December 2023 against the same opponent. In the Premier League, they are on 15 15-match unbeaten streak and would hope to continue their impressive record to stand a chance of becoming the league champions.

All attention of Pep Guardiola and his men will not shift to the Saturday match against Crystal Palace, while Unfair Emery’s men will face Brentford as they continue to fight for a place among the top four.
