Manchester United vs Aston Villa Tips - Pick Reds to bounce back

  • EPL Week 6 match will be held at Old Trafford on Saturday (12:30 BST)
  • Man U won both meetings against Aston Villa last season
  • Man U were upset by West Ham in the Carabao Cup in their last match
  • Aston Villa lost to Chelsea on penalties in the Carabao Cup

We get a double dose of 9:30 kickoffs thanks to a concert by The Courteeners at Old Trafford cricket ground that evening, although most neutrals will probably relegate this one to the second screen.

On the plus side we are almost certain to see plenty of goals in this one as both teams seem primed to go on the attack.

Both Teams to Score has hit in four of United’s five Premier League matches so far plus their Champions League defeat against Young Boys.

Man U bounced back from that loss with a 2-1 triumph at West Ham in the Premier League last week only to lose to the same side 1-0 in their rematch at Old Trafford in Round 3 of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

Top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo was rested in that game but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to have a full side against Aston Villa. The Reds have 13 points and are just behind leaders Chelsea and Liverpool on goal difference.

Like their Week 6 opponents, Aston Villa were eliminated in the Carabao Cup this week after losing to Chelsea 4-3 on penalties. Cameron Archer canceled Timo Werner's opening goal in regular time but Ashley Young and Marvelous Nakamba missed their shots in the decider.

Tenth-ranked Aston Villa beat Everton 3-0 at home in their last Premier League match to improve to seven points from five matches. 

Verdict

Villa recorded a 3-0 win over Everton last weekend and will feel like they have the ability to go after United’s defence but with Ronaldo and company up front for the home side, they should be able to cancel out any concessions at the other end.
