Aston Villa vs Manchester United Prediction

For our Aston Villa vs Manchester United prediction, we’re opting for a 1-0 away victory for the Red Devils.

Aston Villa will be on a revenge mission when they meet Manchester United at Villa Park in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

The Villans fell to a 1-0 defeat against United in the FA Cup at Old Trafford on Monday night, with Scott McTominay’s early header proving to be enough to propel the Red Devils into the fourth round.

United suffered their first defeat of the Rangnick era at home to Wolves in their last Premier League outing, and it was a result, but more so a performance, that had more than one or two inside Old Trafford questioning the German coach’s ability.

Wolves dominated Manchester United, recording more possession, more shots (on and off target) and more corners. They were good value for their victory and few United fans will disagree with that.

Now the West Midlander's prepare to do battle with the 20-time English champions for the second time in six days, as the two teams return to Premier League action.

Steven Gerrard had made an impressive start to his tenure as Aston Villa manager, but the hosts will enter this tea-time tussle off the back of successive Premier League defeats to Chelsea and Brentford.

Man Utd haven't been that impressive under their new manager but they have still won three of their last five matches in all competitions and are the slight favourites with the bookmakers to win on Saturday.

Aston Villa have lost four of their last six in league and cup and Steven Gerrard faces a fourth straight defeat this weekend. Of their last six competitive encounters, Manchester United have beaten Aston Villa four times, losing and drawing once.

For our Aston Villa vs Manchester United prediction, we’re opting for under 2.5 goals.

MAN UTD TO WIN 1-0 @ 15/2

Aston Villa Team News

Philippe Coutinho is in line to make his debut for Aston Villa against familiar foe Manchester United, though it's unclear whether he is fit enough to start after a tough season with Barcelona.

It will be interesting to see where Steven Gerrard plays his former Liverpool team-mate, whether in a midfield diamond or in attack alongside Ollie Watkins and Emi Buendia. It is likely we will see both during the course of the season.

Villa are actually a little light in midfield this weekend with John McGinn suspended and Marvelous Nakamba injured so Gerrard will certainly be tempted to unleash Coutinho from the start in a 4-3-1-2 formation. Morgan Sanson is the alternative but his Villa career has just not got going.

Manchester United Team News

Harry Maguire has missed United's last two through injury and remains a doubt with Victor Lindelof and Raphael Varane on standby to continue at Villa Park.

Diogo Dalot is hoping to be available on Saturday despite picking up a nasty gash on his ankle at the start of the week. Aaron Wan-Bissaka may come back in anyway.

Rangnick believed Donny van de Beek's introduction and the change to a diamond formation gave United more control on Monday night so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him start with it here.
