Aston Villa hosts Manchester United in round 34 of the Premier League. The Red Devils are performing at a very high level and are getting closer to the league’s top 4. On the other side, the hosts are currently placed in the relegation zone and, with just 5 games left to play in the competition, the Villans cannot afford to lose more points.

Check a complete match preview and betting prediction for tonight’s match.

Relegation nightmare is becoming a reality for Aston Villa, match after match

A win tonight puts Aston Villa just one point behind the safe zone. With just 5 games left to play in the Premier League, every point counts for the Villans. But today, the team will face one of the most in-form teams in the Premier League.

The hosts didn’t win any match in the last 9 outings, getting just 2 points during that period. With the second-worst defensive record (62 goals conceded) in the Premier League, Aston Villa scored just 5 goals in the last 9 matches.

And the future doesn’t seem bright for one of the teams that invested the most in the Premier League. Aston Villa faces Manchester United tonight and still has to play against Everton and Arsenal until the end of the season. A win tonight would a great boost of confidence for what’s left of the season.

Engels, Heaton, Targett and Wesley are all out of tonight’s match, due to injury.

Aston Villa predicted lineup

Reina, Konsa, Hause, Mings, Taylor, Douglas Luiz, McGinn, Grealish, El Ghazi, Trezeguet, Davis.

Manchester United continues their pursuit of Premier League’s top-4

Manchester United is probably the most in-form team in the league at the moment. With a very talented attacking trio (Martial, Rashford and Greenwood), and two world-class players behind them (Pogba and Bruno Fernandes), the Red Devils are on a 16-game unbeaten run. 12 of them resulted in a win, with the team scoring 43 goals during that span.

With Aston Villa, Southampton, Crystal Palace, West Ham and Leicester on their schedule until the end of the season, United has great chances of getting a spot in league’s top-4.

With a 5-2 win against Bournemouth last round, Manchester United gave another demonstration of how good they have been performing in 2020. The team scored at leats 3 goals in each of the last 3 Premier League matches.

Phil Jones and Tuanzebe are out of Solskjaer’s options for tonight due to injury. Lindelof remains questionable.

Manchester United predicted lineup

De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Pogba, Matic, Bruno Fernandes, Greenwood, Rashford, Martial.

Betting Prediction

After Leicester’s draw at the Emirates this round, a win tonight puts Manchester United just one point away from the top-4. Despite Aston Villa being desperate for points, we believe the visitors will get the win tonight. Check Manchester United to win the match at Villa Park!
