Who's Playing

  • Manchester United @ Aston Villa
  • Current Records: Manchester United 9-6-4; Aston Villa 7-11-1

What to Know

Aston Villa took care of business against Manchester United on the road in the teams' previous meeting last September and will be looking to do the same thing back at Villa Park. The Lions will take on Man United at 12:30 p.m. ET on Saturday after a week off. Both clubs are out to turn their luck around after having lost tight contests in their previous games.

It was all tied up 1-1 at halftime, but Villa was not quite Brentford's equal in the second half when they met last week. Villa lost 2-1 to Brentford.

Speaking of close games: Man United fell a goal short of Wolverhampton last Monday, losing 1-0.

The Lions won by a goal, slipping past the Red Devils 1-0. Will Villa repeat their success, or does Man United have a better game plan this time around? We'll find out soon enough.
