Aston Villa is facing the risk of being overtaken by Manchester United in the League table if they cannot improve their form. Despite Aston Villa causing problems for many teams at home, they have recently suffered defeats to Newcastle and Chelsea. On the other hand, Manchester United's inconsistency from game to game makes it hard to fully rely on them. However, they have the pace to exploit Villa's high defensive line and are expected to create plenty of scoring opportunities for Garnacho and Rashford. The match at Villa Park could turn into a high-scoring shootout.
"While Unai Emery's side had been a fearsome prospect at home for much of the past year, things appear to be creaking."
Manchester United will be without Lisandro Martinez due to a knee injury, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka is doubtful after a training setback. Mason Mount and Tyrell Malacia are unavailable for Aston Villa, but Victor Lindelof is now fit and competing with Raphael Varane to partner Harry Maguire in defense. Ezri Konsa is expected to be out for a month due to a knee issue. Moussa Diaby is pushing for a start for Villa after scoring off the bench in the midweek match against Chelsea. Both teams can watch the game live on Sky Sports Premier League and Main Event channels in the UK and subscribers can also stream it on the Sky Go app.
"United have the pace to exploit Villa's high line, with Garnacho and Rashford likely to get plenty of chances in behind, and it could turn into a high-scoring shootout."
