Gary Neville: Man City must avoid complacency against Aston Villa

Gary Neville says Manchester City can't afford to be complacent against an Aston Villa side capable of producing "daft" results.


Manchester City's win at Everton on Saturday, coupled with Liverpool and Chelsea dropping points, has seen them emerge as overwhelming favourites to win the Premier League for the second time. But speaking before Liverpool's draw, fellow Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher said he had seen signs that City could slip up again. He said: "You can't say you see it or expect it. The thing with Manchester City with the squad that they've got and the team they've got, they should have romped away with the league. "But they have complacency in them and I saw that at the weekend as well. It's too easy at times for them. When they get to 3-1 you'd expect them to go to 4-1 or 5-1 with the quality they've got. "They let teams get back into the game. I remember the Villa game at Villa Park this season. They lost 3-2. "You'd expect at home they would win the game, but I've seen Villa at Anfield this season and they sometimes do put in a performance every few months that takes you totally by surprise. "That's what Liverpool supporters will be hoping for and Manchester City fans and players will be fearing."
