The Guardiola protected had to accept the first goal during the week in the premier class. The Champions League debutant from Italy, Atalanta Bergamo, was even able to take the lead with a foul penalty. Finally, thanks to a brace from Sergio Agüero and a flawless hat-trick by Raheem Sterling (within eleven minutes), the big favorite beat 5: 1.
In the clear victory Guardiola acted without a trained center-back in the starting lineup. Aymeric Laporte is injured for a long time due to a knee injury. Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones found themselves only on the bench again, the two trained six Fernandinho and Rodri took the place in central defense.
19 points from nine games are a very strong value, but given the results in recent years, perfectionist Pep Guardiola can not be completely satisfied with the recent performances in the English Premier League. Only two of the four previous home games have been victorious.
Against the Tottenham Hotspurs there was despite impressive superiority, a 2: 2, the last home game against the Wolves ended even with a 0-2 defeat. After winning 18 out of 19 home games last year, Manchester City will not be able to reach that 2019/20 mark.

Nonetheless, Manchester City and Aston Villa odds on the three-way market are not recommended.

Roy Hodgson defeated the Skyblues in December 2018.
