Playing against Manchester City is difficult. Playing against Manchester City is even more difficult when you hand over their first goal on a silver platter with just three minutes gone. To gift them two more, well, that's criminal and almost impossible to overcome. Aston Villa did just that at the Not At All Sponsoring Themselves Stadium on Saturday and the manner of the 3-2 defeat leaves supporters with both positives and negatives to chew over.
In this week's show Chris and Steve assess the performance, discuss Villa's character and vulnerability, and revisit the major incidents from what became a dramatic and frustrating afternoon, including two penalty shouts and the mighty Villa comeback that never was. We also look ahead to the next fixture in the Premier League, which sees Everton visit Villa Park on the back of a 3-0 victory over Manchester United. Hold on to your hats, folks, we ain't safe yet.
