Aston Villa would be looking to register their first win under Remi Garde but they face an uphill task in the form of Manchester City.
Aston Villa have found it hard to register wins this season and they are currently at the bottom of the table with just 4 points to their name.
Their poor run of form has led to the sacking of Tim Sherwood and the club has now appointed former France international, Remi Garde.
The Frenchman has admitted that it would be very tough to turn the fortunes around but he is confident of keeping the Villains in the Premier League.
They will however are likely to be without the services of their captain, Gabby Agbonlahor, how was substituted at half time last week.
Aston Villa will welcome Micah Richards, who will be keen to make a statement when he take on his former club.
Manchester City are at the top of the table and are expected to win this game with ease.
They have qualified for the next round of the Champions League with 2 games to spare and their form in front of the goal has been formidable.
However, the Citizens are still without their star players, David Silva and Sergio Aguerro. Pablo Zabaleta and Samir Nasri are also unavailable for the clash and will sit out the match.
Fabian Delph will return to face his former side for the first time but he is expected to only make it to Manchester City bench for the clash against Aston Villa on Sunday.
