Manchester United look to get back to winning ways following a mid-week League cup exit in the 3rd round against West Ham United at home.
The Red Devils are under pressure to pick up a trophy this season after the long gap but with the knockout, they have 3 left to compete for.
But in the Premier League, they have begun their season well and head into this on the back of a 2-1 away win over West Ham in their last match.
Ronaldo and Lingard were the scorers as United completed the comeback after Benrahma gave the Hammers a lead.
This win kept United within touching distance of Chelsea and Liverpool as they are placed 3rd in the table with 13 points from 4 matches.
On the other hand, Aston Villa beat Everton 3-0 in their previous EPL clash before getting knocked out from the EFL Cup against Chelsea on penalties 4-3 after 1-1 in regulation time.
Cash, Digne (own goal) and Bailey’s second half strikes gave Villa their 2nd win of the season.
Aston Villa is in 10th spot on the table with 7 points from 5 matches. Hence, they eye improvement and consistency.
Both sides last met in the EPL in May where United won 1-3 through strikes from Fernandes, Greenwood and Cavani.
