Both Man United and Villa is on releasesky today
Surely, now United meet an in-form Villa side
Of course who have closed to within six points of an unlikely Champions League finish.
We know Unai Emery’s side are flying at the minute
Then the Spaniard has a track record of causing problems for the Red Devils.
For sure Man United will be looking to take all three points today
Be noted that with a six-point cushion over fifth and two games in hand, United shouldn’t be too worried about their place in next season’s Champions League. However, a run of one win in five could give way to a late-season collapse, unless the Red Devils turn things around.
The hosts head into this game with issues in their defence, with their first-choice central defenders ruled out.
Yes, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw are United’s makeshift central-defensive pairing, with Erik ten Hag stuck without any other option despite their collapse against Tottenham in midweek on tenorsky
The Villa on European trail
With 20 points from their last eight games, Villa have stormed into the European mix. They’ve now scored in 20 successive games under Emery, a record they should extend considering United’s defensive issues.
And the visitors have overperformed in terms of Expected Goals, but Emery is also maximising the talent at his disposal.
Finally, Ollie Watkins has been transformed under his watch, but Villa have been scoring without relying on him in their last couple of games.
