Aston Villa vs Manchester United Prediction

Aston Villa 0-2 Manchester United

Aston Villa have had a rough go at it over the past couple of matches and will continue to do so in this one. It doesn’t help that Manchester United have been playing at the top of their game recently.

The Villans have struggled to score this season, as their 11 goals are tied for the third-lowest in the Premier League. Additionally, their goal differential of -9 is tied for fourth-worst in the league.

Though Manchester United haven’t been scoring as much as a top-5 team would, the defensive unit has allowed them only to need one goal to win matches.

WAGER: 2 Units

Manchester United are just the better team and have been playing extremely well entering this match. They’ve won three of their last five and came back very late against Chelsea to get the draw.

Aston Villa has struggled all around, and the 4-0 victory over Bournemouth seems more like a fluke than anything else.

Back Manchester United to win this match, especially with it at plus odds.
