The Red Devils are unbeaten in 2024 so far

Aston Villa’s reputation as a challenging venue has taken a hit recently, with Newcastle and Chelsea securing convincing 3-1 victories in the past two weeks. Aston Villa, currently in fourth place, faces the weekend with a five-point gap behind leaders Liverpool and a slim two-point lead over fifth-placed Spurs. A win would extend their lead over sixth-placed Manchester United to 11 points, while a loss would narrow it to five.

Manchester United, in good form with four wins and a draw in their last five games, pose a threat, especially with improved defensive performances and key players back in action. Last week’s clean sheet in the win over West Ham would’ve pleased Ten Hag immensely and they now look a threat across the pitch with all the key players getting back in form.

Sunday, 11 February 2024 at 04:30 PM GMT (10:00 PM IST)

Location: Villa Park

Form

Aston Villa (all competitions): D-D-L-W-L

Manchester United (all competitions): L-W-D-W-W

Players to watch

Youri Tielemans (Aston Villa)

Tielemans stands out as a remarkably intelligent and technically adept playmaker, showcasing a diverse skill set that distinguishes his impact. He embodies the characteristics of a top-tier playmaker, influencing the game through various means. Tielemans excels in optimizing space and possession, demonstrating proficiency in both passing and dribbling when required. His effectiveness is not solely attributed to his ball control or physical prowess but rather to his keen intelligence.

Rasmus Hojlund (Manchester United)

At the age of 21, Rasmus Hojlund became the youngest Manchester United player to achieve both scoring and assisting in consecutive Premier League games. Hojlund, who had no goals in his initial 14 Premier League appearances, has now netted four goals in the last four matches. He is a center-forward with a left-footed preference, possesses the instincts of a poacher. His playing style involves occupying spaces within the penalty area and aiming to finish as close to the six-yard box as he can.

Match facts:

  • Aston Villa won this exact fixture 3-1 last season, ending a 23-game winless run in the Premier League against Manchester United at Villa Park. They last won consecutive home league games against the Red Devils between 1966 and 1977.
  • Manchester United’s 17 victories in 28 Premier League away games against Aston Villa stand as one of the highest away win records in the league, surpassed only by United’s 19 away wins against Everton.
