Reason for Aston Villa vs Manchester United Predictions
Manchester United travels to Villa Park to take on the hosts in this Matchday 20 encounter. Aston Villa is in 14th position with 22 points while the visitors are in 7th position with 31 points. The home team had a great start with new manager Steven Gerrard, but defeats in their last three matches have ended his fairytale start. After being dumped out of the FA Cup by United during the week, Villa will be out for revenge. They have four losses in their last six home matches and will look to urgently improve on that record. Villa will have history against them as they have not won at home against United in the last 22 matches. Leon Bailey (Thigh Problems) and Marvelous Nakamba (Knee Injury) are not available for Aston Villa gaffer Steven Gerrard. The players ineligible for this match because of suspension are Bertrand Traoré and Trezeguet. Ollie Watkins is a great striker, and he scored 14 goals last season. Emiliano Buendia is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed.
Manchester United will be smarting after their home defeat to Wolves in their last league match. They bounced back well to beat Villa in the FA Cup during the week. Their loss to Wolves was their first loss in ten games. They are currently in seventh spot, just four points away from the Europa League positions and six points away from the Champions League spots. They do have games in hand over the teams above them. Victory will be crucial for them as they will look to turn their games in hand into points. Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick has not got a full squad to pick from. Harry Maguire (Chest injury), Paul Pogba (Hamstring Injury), and Tahith Chong (Groin Surgery) will miss out on this game. Jadon Sancho is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance. Scott McTominay found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy.
Manchester United are the big favorites in this match, and they have to take advantage of the fact that Aston Villa is in very poor form.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
