Aston Villa is facing personnel setbacks ahead of tomorrow's match against Manchester City.

The head coach of the Birmingham-based team, Unai Emery, confirmed that leading forward Ollie Watkins, as well as midfielder Jacob Ramsey, will be unavailable for the match.

"We've had a lot of unfortunate situations with injured players, but we always strive to remain positive. The players in the team are present because we believe in them and in our ability to respond to challenges," commented Emery on the situation.

In the current season, Watkins has scored 22 goals and provided 10 assists in 42 matches for Villa in all competitions. Ramsey, 22, has scored one goal and provided two assists in 22 games.

Additionally, Villa's injury list still includes midfielder Boubacar Kamara, center-back Tyrone Mings, right-back Matty Cash, and winger Emiliano Buendia.
