Fourth-placed Manchester United will be looking to solidify their position in the Champions League qualification spots as they host Aston Villa at Old Trafford Saturday morning. Building on impressive back-to-back wins against top-4 rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, Louis van Gaal’s men will be hoping for a more convincing performance than they delivered in the reverse fixture back in December, when the Red Devils were held to a 1-1 draw by 10-man Villa.
With just eight games left, Aston Villa remain a slender three points above the relegation zone. Tim Sherwood will be hoping his Villains can bounce back from a disappointing 1-0 home loss to Swansea last time out.
But while Villa have won three of their last four fixtures under their new manager, scoring eight goals in the process, history dictates that this fixture will be a struggle for the men in claret and blue: they’ve won just one of their last 38 Premier League encounters with Manchester United.
NBC Sports Extra will be showing the game online via their Sports Extra App, with kick-off scheduled for 10am Eastern. You can also listen to the game for free via BBC 5 Live.
