Manchester City has a chance to regain the top spot in the Premier League today when they travel to Villa Park to take on Alex McLeish’s side. The Scot’s job is rumored to be on a razor’s edge as is the jobs of the two managers involved in the Black Country derby played earlier in the day — Mick McCarthy’s Wolves against Roy Hodgson’s West Bromwich Albion. Depending on what happens today, it could be a stressful 24 hours for one of the managers in the Birmingham area.
Aston Villa are hopeful Mark Albrighton, Gabby Agbonlajor and James Collins recover from injuries in time to face Manchester City, while Vincent Kompany returns for Manchester City against Aston Villa. Samir Nasri could also be back after a groin injury, and Mario Balotelli’s four-match suspension is over.
