Preview: Manchester United vs Aston Villa LIVE in Premier League
The Premier League business will resume at the weekend with Manchester United taking on Aston Villa. The Red Devils will be looking to move from their midweek exit from the Carabao Cup. While Aston Villa will take some inspiration from their 1-1 draw in the Carabao Cup against Chelsea.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will keen extremely keen that his side manages to win this one. A bad result would mean more talks about the credentials of Manchester United. While Dean Smith would want his side to believe that can get a point from Old Trafford.
With the Red Devils being the home side they expected to dominate possession. Aston Villa will try to use their energy to put quick pressure on them and create a low block. Under Solskjear Manchester United has struggled to open up a low block. However, the Old Trafford pitch is huge and they will try to use it to stretch Aston Villa’s defence.

Head to Head: Manchester United vs Aston Villa
The two teams have faced each other 190 times. The Red Devils have emerged victorious in 101 times, the Villians have won 49 times. The rest of the 40 games have ended in a stalemate.
Players to watch out:
Manchester United: Mason Greenwood
It would be unnecessary to include the name of Cristiano Ronaldo. The 36 years old is clearly reached beyond that point. However, Greenwood has been in great form this season. With the defenders focusing more on Ronaldo inside the box, Greenwood can scoop in below the radar.
Aston Villa: Danny Ings
It is likely that the Red Devils will get a goal in this game. Even though Aston Villa will be defending for the majority of the game. The question is do they have the capacity to hit one back? In order to do that, they will need an experienced head like Igns. The Old Trafford can be an intimating place and InGs will need his experience to lead Aston Villa’s attack.
