Man City meets familiar trio with trip to Villa


Manchester City will find at least three highly motivated players in its way Sunday when it tries to improve upon its flagging away form with a Premier League match at Aston Villa.

Only four clubs have won fewer home games this season than Villa but Richard Dunne, Stephen Ireland and Shay Given all have extra incentive to improve that record because they used to play for City.

The latter pair were even sold by current City manager Roberto Mancini, who says ``this is Manchester City against Aston Villa, not Dunne, Ireland and Given.''

Mancini says he isn't worried by a run of only one win from six away matches, but City now leads Manchester United at the top of the table by just two points.
