          The Third Round of the FA Cup saw Aston Villa take on Championship side Middlesbrough. Boro could only manage one shot on target and Matty Cash grabbed a late goal to give Villa the 1 - 0 win and the spot in the next round.

          Back in the Premier League, Villa travelled to Goodison Park to face Everton. This game saw Villa register 16 shots with five on target with 69% of the possession, however, neither team could find a goal and had to settle for the 0 - 0 and the point.

          It was a trip to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup. Both sides had over ten shots, though Villa could only manage five shots on target and Chelsea could only manage four, with neither team able to convert any of these chances, leaving them with a 0 - 0 draw and a replay.

          The next time out saw Villa host Newcastle. A quickfire brace from Fabian Schar saw Newcastle take a commanding 2 - 0 lead at halftime. This lead was then added to by an Alex Moreno own goal just after halftime. Ollie Watkins managed to grab a goal but it wasn’t enough as Villa slumped to the 3 - 1 loss.

          John McGinn, Watkins, Leon Bailey and Youri Tielemans all scored in a jam-packed first half for Villa that saw them 4 - 0 up against Sheffield United. Moreno then added another early in the second half to secure the 5 - 0 win for Villa.

          Aston Villa were dumped out of the FA Cup by Chelsea at Villa Park on Wednesday night via a 3-1 scoreline, having fallen 3-0 behind as Conor Gallagher, Nicolas Jackson and Enzo Fernandez all got on the scoresheet. Moussa Diaby managed to score a 91st-minute consolation goal for Unai Emery's men.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Manchester United have four wins and one draw.

          In the Third Round of the FA Cup, United faced League One Wigan Athletic. United had 33 shots in comparison to Wigan’s nine shots as goals from Diogo Dalot and Bruno Fernandes gave United the 2 - 0 win.

          Back in the Premier League, United hosted Tottenham. Rasmus Hojlund gave United the early lead but Richarlison got Tottenham level before the 20 minute mark. Marcus Rashford put United back ahead before the halftime whistle but Rodrigo Bentancur equalised just one minute into the second half. Neither side could find another goal and had to settle for the 2 - 2 draw.

          The Fourth Round of the FA Cup saw League Two side Newport County host United. Fernandes and Kobbie Mainoo gave United the early 2 - 0 lead, but goals from Bryn Morris and Will Evans made it 2 - 2 just two minutes into the second half. However, goals from Anthony and Hojlund secured the 4 - 2 win for United.

          The clash between Wolves and United produced a seven-goal thriller. Rashford and Hojlund gave United another 2 - 0 lead, but a penalty from Pablo Sarabia got Wolves into the game in the second half. Scott McTominay quickly restored the two-goal cushion but goals from Max Kilman and Pedro Neto looked to tie the game. However, the 97th-minute goal from Mainoo grabbed a 4 - 3 win for United.

          Hojlund gave United the 1 - 0 lead at halftime and a brace from Alejandro Garnacho in the second half gave United the 3 - 0 win over West Ham.
