Manchester United have struggled all season. They recently played Villa at home and were fortunate to come away with a win in the cup. Villa are good value for a draw here though.

These two teams met on Monday in the FA Cup third round, a game that saw United record a narrow 1-0 win. The defeat was Villa’s third straight loss but I'm backing them to bounce back and hold Man United to a draw.

Manchester United have dominated games against Villa in the Premier League, winning 37 of the 53 meetings with the Villans. Villa have recorded just four wins and 12 matches have finished in all draws.

Villa won 1-0 in the Premier League at Old Trafford in September but lost by the same scoreline in the FA Cup on Monday.

Aston Villa Form

Aston Villa's 1-0 defeat to Man United at Old Trafford in the FA Cup followed on from losses against Brentford and Chelsea in the Premier League. 

The Villans' only win their last five matches in all competitions was a 2-0 victory at the league’s whipping boys Norwich.

Aston Villa Team News

Villa could be without Ashley Young, Leon Bailey, Bertrand Traore, Marvelous Nakamba and Trezeguet. 

New signings Philippe Coutinho and Lucas Digne could make their debuts.

Man United Form

The FA Cup win over Villa on Monday was welcome for Ralf Rangwick's side as it came after a 1-0 home defeat to Wolves, which ended a nine-match unbeaten run in all competitions. 

Before the defeat against Wolves, the Red Devils had beaten Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Norwich and Burnley as well as drawing with Newcastle.

Man United Team News

Paul Pogba will miss out through injury, as will the suspended Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay. 

Eric Bailly is at the AFCON, while Cristiano Ronaldo, Dean Henderson, Jadon Sancho, Harry Maguire, Phil Jones and Diogo Dalot are all fitness doubts.

What time does Aston Villa vs Man United start?

The match starts at 5.30pm GMT on Saturday, January 15.



Neither team has been convincing of late. Villa’s recent performances have maybe warranted more than what they got, while Man United just seem to be stuck in a bit of a rut. With neither in great shape, I'm backing a draw.
