There only appears one winner here with these two heading in polar opposite directions at present. Whereas United continue to pile the pressure on Chelsea as they seek a top-four finish, Villa are hurtling back towards the Championship after losing seven of nine winless matches since February.
The hosts are still fighting however and are by no means down yet, while they’ll point towards some tough fixtures of late with their last six featuring encounters with Leicester, Sheffield Utd, Chelsea, Wolves and Liverpool.
That has left Dean Smith’s men with 13 defeats from 14 winless matches against the top eight in the table this season, though they did find the net in 10 of these, as well as in cup clashes with Wolves, Liverpool, Leicester (twice) and Man City.
United have now won 11 of 16 unbeaten matches going back to late January in all competitions. However, whereas they managed clean sheets in nine of the first 11, the subsequent five matches have produced just two shutouts, including concessions to rock-bottom Norwich in the FA Cup and second-from-bottom Bournemouth 5-2 last time out.
Victor Lindelof is also a doubt having been substituted at half time against the Cherries with a back complaint, but within minutes of the second half starting, replacement Eric Bailly had already conceded a penalty.
Man United To Win And Both Teams To Score
Given the hosts have found the net in 17 of 20 matches at Villa Park across all tournaments this season, with all four cup games coming against top-six sides, both teams to score looks like a strong possibility here.
It’s impossible to see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men misfiring at the moment. Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes provide the creative juice, while Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood have 55 goals between them now across all competitions – more than the combined output of much vaunted Liverpool trio Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah.
Bruno Fernandes To Score Anytime
However, Martial’s last six goals have come at Old Trafford and at odds-on we’d rather leave him alone.
Instead, it’s Bruno Fernandes that captures our attention and the Portuguese maestro has seven goals in his last 11 appearances for United, including four from five since the restart, while four of his past five goals for the club have come on the road.
The 12 penalties United have received this season is two more than Man City and five more than anyone else in the division, further increasing his chances of finding the net.
United have won by a minimum two-goal margin in six of their last eight league fixtures now, with the exceptions in stalemates away at Everton and Spurs.
Meanwhile, they’ve led at both half-time and full-time in five of their last six against bottom-half teams, so should have plenty about them to take the spoils.
