Manchester City vs Aston Villa – Top Fantasy Picks On BalleBaazi: Premier League 2021-22

Manchester City vs Aston Villa – Top Fantasy Picks On BalleBaazi: Premier League 2021-22

Manchester City face Aston Villa at the Etihad on the last day of the Premier League season with the title hanging in the balance. Pep Guardiola’s side will have to win the game to win their fourth Premier League title in five years. If they fail to win and Liverpool beat Wolves, Jurgen Klopp’s men will be the champions of England.

With so much at stake, City need to prove to their fans and to Guardiola that they won’t buckle under the pressure and win the title.

Let’s have a look at the top fantasy picks you can select on the BalleBaazi app for this match.


Ederson – 8

Ederson is our pick for the goalkeeping position. He has been a pivotal figure in this Manchester City side since joining the club, and the club will need him to perform to his best against Aston Villa.

Ederson is also joint top in the race for the golden glove. He is tied at 20 with Liverpool’s Alisson. The golden glove race is also set to go to the wire, and both keepers could end up sharing it.


Joao Cancelo – 9

Joao Cancelo has had an excellent season for Manchester City. His creativity from full-back positions is exceptional. Cancelo has 7 assists in the Premier League this season, which is as much as De Bruyne, and only Gabriel Jesus has more.

Cancelo is a threat down the flanks and could be amongst the assists, which is why he’s our pick for this game.

Aymeric Laporte – 9

Another key player in Man City’s defence is Aymeric Laporte. With Ruben Dias out injured, Laporte’s significance has increased in recent weeks.

He is a technically gifted, ball-playing centre half with good speed, which helps City push their backline higher.

Laporte will be a key player for City against Villa to keep a clean sheet in their final game of the season.


Kevin De Bruyne – 10

Kevin De Bruyne is arguably the most straightforward pick in this fantasy team. The Belgian international has had another great season. This time, his assists are not as many, but his goal return is superb. This season, De Bruyne has scored 15 goals in the Premier League and he is City’s top goal scorer.

He will have to step up again on Sunday to create and possibly finish chances for Manchester City. De Bruyne is a must pick for this final game of the season and could boost your points.

Bernardo Silva – 9

Bernardo Silva has arguably been Manchester City’s best player this season. His all-around game is simply excellent. He is a great dribbler, a brilliant passer, and he also works tirelessly without the ball.

The Portuguese schemer has 8 goals and 4 assists in the Premier League this season. Pep has played him in a number of positions this campaign, and he has rarely disappointed his manager. He is another pick you can explore for your fantasy team for the final matchday of the Premier League season.

John McGinn – 9

It’s hard to get picked over Man City’s players in the midfield, but John McGinn is a talented player. Since Villa’s promotion to the top flight, the Scottish international has been one of Steven Gerrard’s most consistent players. 

His intensity is great, and the quality in the final third is also excellent. McGinn’s versatility is another exceptional factor to his game.

He will be a key figure for Steven Gerrard and will aim to make things harder for City in the middle of the park.

Philippe Coutinho – 9

Philippe Coutinho’s return to the Premier League has worked out well so far. In 18 appearances for Aston Villa, he has 4 goals and 3 assists. Steven Gerrard has played the Brazilian in this most suited position, which has helped him contribute more on the pitch.

Aston Villa will try to get Ollie Watkins in behind the City defence on counter-attacks, and Coutinho’s technical ability could be a useful weapon to execute attacks in transition.


Ollie Watkins – 9

Aston Villa are a dangerous team that can hurt City, and Ollie Watkins will be a big player for Steven Gerrard.

Watkins’s movement is excellent, and the timing of his runs is well-complemented by the pace he has. This season, he has scored 11 goals in the Premier League.

City’s defensive weakness is pace, which we saw in the game against West Ham. Watkins has the skillset to cause plenty of trouble to this City backline and get on the scoresheet. 

He could get you valuable points for your fantasy team should Villa cause an upset at the Etihad.
