The 6th round of the English Premier League will start at the Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester on Saturday, 25 September. The stadium will be the meeting place for the upcoming head-to-head confrontation between Manchester United and Aston Villa which will start at 14:30 GMT.
The rivals are on the same level: the hosts were happy with an away win, while the guests won convincingly at home. We hope that our prediction for the Manchester United vs Aston Villa match will be correct.
The team of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues their victorious march through the tournament. However, from match to match, the resistance to the Mancunians is growing, and it is becoming more and more difficult for the team to achieve a positive result. So in the 5th round, Manchester United, with great difficulty, managed to achieve a 2-1 victory in a tough match against the capital’s West Ham. Nevertheless, the team received three points. Ahead of the match with Aston Villa, the Red Devils are in 3rd place in the standings with 13 points.
The team of Dean Smith is still far from their ideal form. There is no stability in the team’s game. In the 4th round, Aston Villa lost with a score of 0-3 on the road to Chelsea. But in the 5th round, Dean Smith’s charges defeated Everton at home with the same score. This victory allowed the team to gain 7 points and move up to 10th place in the standings.
The history of head-to-head meetings between Manchester United and Aston Villa totals 191 matches. In 101 meetings, the victory was on the side of the Mancunians, while in 50 matches, the team from Birmingham was stronger. In 40 cases, the matches of these teams ended in a draw.
We would like to believe that Manchester United will be successful once again. However, Aston Villa also has plans for this game. Consequently, our prediction for the Manchester United vs Aston Villa match is leaning towards the outcome in which the emphasis will be on the goals scored.
Probable result – Both teams will score.
