Style points were not awarded to either Manchester United or Aston Villa in their English Premier League openers last weekend, but both claimed all three points with 1-0 away wins over Tottenham and Bournemouth, respectively. The two sides will meet Friday night.
Manchester United goalie David de Gea will not suit up for the Red Devils once again, confirming he is likely to join Real Madrid in the next two weeks. The move will end one of the longest transfer sagas of the summer.
The match is being played on Friday because Manchester United has a Championship League playoff with Club Brugge slated for next Tuesday.
The match kicks off at 2:45 p.m. Eastern, 7:45 GMT, and can be seen on NBCSN (US)/Sky Sports 1 (UK)/BeIN Sports (Spain). For international viewers, please click here for the local listing in your home country.
