Aston Villa are only two spots in the table’s relegation zone. They are only one point ahead of Leicester City in the danger zone with a total of 12 points.
Aston Villa needs a victory since Leicester has recently displayed a streak of unblemished play. Despite having the home edge, it is impossible to predict with certainty that they will score a three-pointer on Sunday based on their present performance.
In four of their previous five league contests, they have gone winless. Three of these were losses as well. The key issue is that in two of those three games, they lost to teams that were close to Manchester United in the standings.
They’ve also given up 9 goals in their last four league games, including a 4-0 loss to Newcastle the night before. Also keep in mind that they lost three of their last four games with a clean sheet.
Manchester United, meanwhile, has put on the kind of displays that suggest they’ve found their form again over the past few games. They have not lost in their last eight games.
Despite playing matches against Chelsea and Tottenham in the earlier stages, the Red Devils have not lost. They have a good chance of scoring a three-pointer in this game when they are in such good shape.
Aston Villa vs Manchester United – Betting Analysis
The most recent meeting had ended in a 2-2 tie, and in both of their meetings with United last season, Aston Villa went undefeated. At this stadium, Villa hasn’t defeated United in the Premier League in 20 years.
United has won its last four games with clean sheets in this stadium. Even at home, the Lions are currently playing inconsistently. United, on the other side, has gone undefeated in three straight away games in all competitions.
It seems unlikely that their goal-scoring side has the ability to score against a team like United, despite the recent draw against Manchester City. Additionally, United has won on the road with a clean sheet against opponents that are currently below Villa in the standings.
