Aston Villa vs Manchester Utd Prediction & Betting tips
The last game in the 34th round of the Premier League concerns the game of Aston Villa and Manchester United on Thursday evening at Villa Park. Both teams badly need the points: Aston Villa is still fighting relegation and Manchester United are still in the race for a Champions League ticket.
For Aston Villa, five more important games in the Premier League will follow. In those five games, The Villans can make or break the season. It’s very simple: Dean Smith can survive with Aston Villa and he can also be relegated with The Villans. Currently, Aston Villa is under the line in the Premier League. Because Watford won 2-1 against Norwich City on Tuesday-evening, Aston Villa has been four points behind in safe seventeenth place since this week. So there is work to be done for Smith and his men.
The four-point gap seems bridgeable for Aston Villa. The problem is that The Villans still have to win games in the Premier League and Villa has not been successful lately. Last weekend, Aston Villa lost 2-0 to Liverpool and The Villans have not won nine league games in a row. The last win in the Premier League dates from January 21: Aston Villa was 2-1 too strong for Watford.
In the Premier League, no team is currently unbeaten longer than Manchester United. The Red Devils have been unbeaten for nine consecutive games and Ole Gunnar Solskjær is making great strides with Manchester United. This advance cannot be seen in isolation from the arrival of Bruno Fernandes: the Portuguese made the switch to Old Trafford in January and has quickly become an important link in the team of Solskjær. In addition, Paul Pogba is also starting to play better football at Manchester United and the same goes for players like Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.
It is also becoming more and more attractive to watch Manchester United. That has been different in recent months. Over the weekend, Manchester United played a great game at Old Trafford against AFC Bournemouth. The Red Devils recorded a 5-2 win over Bournemouth and fought back from an early deficit. Last Tuesday, Manchester United also won 0-3 against Brighton, so the atmosphere is good with Solskjær and his players. Champions League qualification becomes more real for Manchester United with the match.
