Aston Villa v Manchester United Match Preview & Trends

Fixture pile-up begins for United as Villa hope to capitalize

Manchester United go to Villa Park on Sunday to begin a testing week even for their depth of talent. It is the first of 3 Premier League games in the space of 6 days for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men who will no doubt eventually feel the burn of playing every two days. The recovery involved and the lack of training time available to Solskjaer will be a concern ahead of a tricky fixture against Aston Villa before hosting both Leicester and Liverpool later this week. Rotation will be key to getting through it intact and luckily he has quality in abundance to be able to switch things up and keep players fresh.

Dean Smith once again will be without skipper Jack Grealish, although taking him out of the shop window against one of his potential suitors is not a bad thing for Villa’s retention scheme. 61% of Aston Villa’s conceded goals were conceded at home. There have been 3 or more goals scored in each of Aston Villa’s last 5 games and they have scored before half-time in their last 4 fixtures despite not winning more than one of the previous 5 matches at Villa Park.

Manchester Utd have been undefeated in their last 13 matches and have scored in 71% of their away matches. United have not lost in their last 17 away matches and 41% of Man Utd’s Premier League away games this season have seen both sides score before halftime. More goals have been scored in the first half in 6 of the last 10 games between Aston Villa and Man Utd.

Villa haven’t won their last 10 matches in a row against Man Utd nor their previous 10 against the Red Devils at Villa Park. Aston Villa conceded at least one goal from Man Utd in the last 10 games and at least one goal from the same opposition in the last 9 home matches. Villa have scored before half-time in their last 4 fixtures and there have been 3 or more goals scored in each of their last 5 games.
