City drop their first two points of the season after a very even game at Villa Park. City dominated the first half an hour but an injury to captain Vincent Kompany in the 34th minute seemed to give Villa confidence and they grew into the game from that point. Kompany’s injury won’t lead to him missing any games for City, as an international break will give him time to recover.
Final Score – Aston Villa 0 Manchester City 0
