Here are five football tips that Jack Green thinks you should consider for Aston Villa v Manchester City in Sunday’s final at Wembley.

Man City (-1) {ODDS:529808709:2/5}

Man City thrashed Watford 6-0 in their last cup final at Wembley and should ease to another comfortable victory on Sunday.

Aston Villa are on a run of three consecutive defeats and lost their two Premier League games against City this season 3-0 and 6-1.

Over 3.5 goals {ODDS:529807432:1/1}

Given that City have scored nine goals against Villa this season, they could easily pass this mark on their own.

Villa look likely to find the net too, as they’ve scored in nine of their last 10 matches and will be taking on a City defence missing Aymeric Laporte through injury.

Raheem Sterling to score {ODDS:541650948:19/20}

Sterling returned from a hamstring injury against Real Madrid in midweek and looked dangerous off the bench.

He should start this final and looks a good bet to add to his tally of 24 goals for club and country this season, one of which came against Villa in the Premier League.

Aston Villa to have the most cards {ODDS:529807754:13/10}

Villa have the Premier League’s fifth-worst disciplinary record this season, while City rank 13th.

Pep Guardiola’s side have picked up just one booking across their last three matches in all competitions, while Villa had four players carded against Southampton last weekend.

Jack Grealish to be carded

Grealish was booked in Villa’s 2-0 defeat to Southampton, taking his tally for the season to seven.

The playmaker was carded in both of Villa’s Premier League meetings with City this term and can make it three out of three on Sunday.
