Manchester United and Aston Villa will meet again in the English Premier League on Saturday.

The two sides faced off in the third round of the FA Cup on Monday where the Red Devils recorded a 1-0 win at Old Trafford. Scott McTominay's early header was enough for the hosts to advance to the next round of the competition.

Man United also avenged their 1-0 defeat against Aston Villa in the Premier League back in September. Kortney Hause sealed the win for the Villans in the 88th minute.

Man United lost 1-0 to Wolverhampton in their last Premier League game so they are determined to beat Aston Villa again. Ralf Rangnick's side are currently ranked seventh in the league with 31 points from 19 games.

Paul Pogba, Harry Maguire and Tahith Chong will definitely not play for Man United here due to injury while both McTominay and Luke Shaw are suspended. Also absent is Eric Bailly, who is currently playing in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Aston Villa suffered back-to-back defeats to Chelsea (3-1) and Brentford (2-1) in their last two Premier League games. As a result, Steven Gerrard's side fell to 19th place with 22 points from 19 games.

Marvelous Nakamba and Leon Bailey are on Aston Villa's injury list while John McGinn is suspended. Mahmoud Ibrahim Hassan and Bertrand Isidore Traore are both playing in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Aston Villa vs Manchester United Tips


1. Match Result - Manchester United to win

We are backing Man United to duplicate their victory over Aston Villa in the FA Cup earlier in the week.

2. Total Goals - Under 2.5

Only one goal separated the two teams in their last duel so expect a similar outcome here.

3. Both Teams To Score - No

Aston Villa may have scored in their last three Premier League matches but they may find it difficult to find the back of the net against this Man U squad.

4. Anytime Goalscorer - Cristiano Ronaldo

The Portuguese superstar has eight goals in the Premier League this season.

5. Correct Score - Man United 1-0

A one-goal cushion should be enough for the Red Devils to secure this victory.

Verdict

We expect Manchester United to beat Aston Villa again.
