Posted on by editor

Manchester United faces a tricky trip to Aston Villa this weekend in the Premier League. The Red Devils will be looking to keep the pressure on Man City at the top of the table by taking full points in this fixture.

Aston Villa vs. Manchester United Trends Analysis

Manchester United has won seven of its last ten matches against Aston Villa, with three of these matches scored away. Villa has won just one of its last ten games against United, at Old Trafford in 2009, while the remaining two matches ended in draws at Villa Park.

Man United’s last trip to Villa Park ended in a draw, with the sides finishing the match level at 2-2.

Aston Villa is losing its grip on the top half of the table, with just one win from its last five matches, and the remaining four matches split between victories and losses. Villa has not been very strong at home this season, winning just two of its last five home games.

Aston Villa has scored 6 goals in its last five games, failing to score in two of these. Defence has been struggling to contain opposition attacks, with 8 goals conceded in the same time period.

Man United hasn’t been having a great time of things either, but seems to be building some momentum with a loss to Crystal Palace in the League Cup followed by two draws and then two wins.

Man United’s strike force is surprisingly flat, with just 6 goals scored in five games. Defence is doing just enough to stay ahead of the game, letting in 5 goals during the same period.

Aston Villa vs. Manchester United Betting Tips

Aston Villa needs to watch out for a Manchester United that looks to have woken up after its loss to Crystal Palace. United know that they’ll need to seize the season by the scruff of the neck now, or risk being played out of the title chase.

Aston Villa’s weak defence is the perfect target for United’s strikers, and it looks like Villa doesn’t have the skills up front it needs to break through a United defence that won’t be giving anything away on Saturday.

Based on United’s pedigree you’d have to back them in this fixture, and our Aston Villa vs Manchester United betting tip is to back United at the best odds you can find.
