A team that has suffered seven straight defeats, should be a walk in the park for City, but Aston Villa held the league leaders to a goalless draw.
Aston Villa could not register a single shot on target under their new manager, Remi Garde, but put up a defensive display and kept out City’s attack.
Aleksandr Kolarov hit the post in the first half, while Sterling was visibly frustrated when he didn’t get a penalty after Clark brought him down in the box.
City continued to waste chances, as both Sterling and De Bruyne missed golden chances in the second half and Fernando hit the crossbar in injury time. Marking the second away match in which City didn’t register a goal.
