Aston Villa vs Manchester United Team News
At this stage of their campaign last season, Aston Villa were languishing in the dropzone, barely hanging by a thread of survival in the English top flight. But they have made the necessary improvements this term, and are currently gunning for a top-half finish in the league.
Although Aston Villa were nearer to the summit towards the middle of this campaign, a downturn of form has seen them slip further down the order. However, this slump is not unconnected to their squad’s struggles with Covid-19 and injuries to key players, including their skipper, Jack Grealish.
Having gathered a total of 48 points from 33 league games, the Villans occupy 10th-spot on the league standings. To be honest, a late challenge for European places is totally off the marks, as they currently sit a massive ten points adrift the Europa League spot.
In their last outing, their miserable three-game winless run came to an end, as they got one over Everton at Goodison Park. Dominic Calvert-Lewin responded swiftly for Everton, having fallen behind courtesy of Ollie Watkins’s opener in the first half. Subsequently in the second half, and with 10 minutes left on the clock, Anwar El Ghazi grabbed a goal, which proved to be winner for the visitors.
Meanwhile, Manchester United were unable to play their high-profile clash with Liverpool owing to fans’ protest against the owners at Old Trafford. This call for change of ownership could be considered a spillover of their involvement in the breakaway European Super League last month.
However, the Red Devils can’t afford to take their eyes off the ball on the pitch, especially after securing for themselves a place in Europa League showpiece event at Gdansk later this month. And an aggregate 8-5 scoreline shows that their progression into the final was relatively plain sailing.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will certainly be glad with this new feat in his managerial career, but he will urge his side to stay focused, as they head into a busy spell in the final straight. A replica of their result against Aston Villa in the reverse fixture is all they need to confirm continental qualification through their league position.
Injured or Suspended Players
Aston Villa: Jack Grealish and Trezeguet.
Manchester United: Phil Jones, Anthony Martial and Daniel James.
