Aston Villa and Manchester United have both had periods of dominance in English football. Villa dominated in the early 20th century, while United has been the most successful team in the Premier League.
Villa duly dominated the new division, racking up six titles by 1910.
In the 1930s, Villa defeated United 7-0 despite the absence of their top goal scorer. United had a terrible start to the season and eventually faced relegation.
United lost their first 12 league matches... and by the new year, relegation was a matter of when rather than if.
