Premier League Betting Tips: Aston Villa v Man Utd

Two sides that could scarcely be in different form at present face off on Thursday as relegation-battling Aston Villa host a resurgent-looking Manchester United.

Aston Villa have taken just two points from 15 available since the restart, and one of those came somewhat fortuitously on their first game back as a rare goal-line technology error denied Sheffield United a legitimate goal in a 0-0 draw. 

 

They come into this fixture in desperate need of three points after Watford cut them four points adrift of safety with a 2-1 win over Norwich on Tuesday, but their form is looking terminal and stretches back to long before lockdown - it’s seven defeats and two draws from their last nine Premier League outings.

 

One issue at present is a lack of goals, with talisman Jack Grealish - leader for Villa in terms of both goals (seven) and assists (six) failing to directly be involved any goals since the hiatus. Villa collectively have scored just two goals from five games.

 

Grealish is 9/2 to score anytime, and 14/1 to open the scoring. That’s behind 12 different Manchester United players, which sums up their underdog status here - a massive 9/1 to get a home win.

 

That’s largely down to Manchester United’s scintillating form, which stretches back to February. They’re unbeaten in 16 in all competitions, winning 12 and losing just four. They’re looking particularly good offensively, with 11 goals scored from their last three league outings and really clicking into top gear as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has settled on a front four of rising star Mason Greenwood alongside Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

 

Greenwood was particularly impressive in Saturday’s massive 5-2 win over Bournemouth, producing two lethal finishes that gave Cherries goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale no chance. The 18-year-old is 11/10 to score anytime, 11/2 to get another brace or 22/1 to score a hat-trick.

 

There’s little value in backing Manchester United, the strong favourites at just 3/10 for an away win, so we recommend backing a comfortable 3-0 victory here. They’ve scored 11 goals in their last three league games, while Aston Villa have looked incredibly blunt of late.

    Manchester United boost Champions League bid with comfortable Aston Villa win

    Manchester United maintained their Champions League charge after a VAR blunder sparked a 3-0 win at Aston Villa.

    Bruno Fernandes’ contentious penalty – after he appeared to tread on Ezri Konsa – gave the visitors the platform for victory at Villa Park.

    Referee Jon Moss gave the spot-kick and his decision was backed up by VAR official Graham Scott, much to Villa’s disbelief and fury.

    Mason Greenwood’s missile and Paul Pogba’s first goal for 453 days then saw United extend their unbeaten run to 17 games in all competitions in another statement of intent.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men closed the gap on fourth-placed Leicester to a point. Fifth-placed United go to the King Power Stadium on the final day of the season.

    Villa raged about the penalty but defeat was another hammer blow to their dwindling hopes of avoiding the drop.

    Trezeguet hit the post just before Fernandes’ opener, but Dean Smith’s side remain four points from safety with just four games left – starting at home to Crystal Palace on Sunday.

    United marched on to keep the pressure on the top four in what looks set to be an increasingly frantic race for Europe.

    Yet the visitors – unchanged for a fourth straight Premier League game for the first time since 2006 – were initially disjointed.

    Villa pressed and contained United, creating the best chance of a bright opening 20 minutes.

    The hosts had joy out wide and Konsa’s cross evaded the United backline to reach Jack Grealish, only for the Old Trafford target to fire wide at the far post.

    With time running out to save themselves Villa needed something special and they almost caught United cold after 25 minutes.

    Trezeguet strode forward unchallenged after Pepe Reina’s clearance, but his low strike hit the outside of the post, a miss which would prove costly two minutes later.

    United had been leggy but took their golden chance to open the scoring when Fernandes went down under Konsa’s challenge.

    Villa were furious, with the midfielder appearing to tread on Konsa – indeed it was more of a foul on the Villa man. But the decision stood after a VAR review.

    It allowed Fernandes to roll in his seventh goal in just 10 Premier League appearances.

    It was the turning point and Fernandes should have bagged a second just before the break but could only head Luke Shaw’s cross over from six yards.

    Villa would have felt hard done by going into half-time a goal behind, yet Greenwood delivered a killer blow in stoppage time.

    Anthony Martial pressured Tyrone Mings into conceding possession midway in United’s half for Fernandes and Greenwood to break.

    Martial eventually returned the ball to Greenwood and, with Douglas Luiz standing off, the teenager’s rocket flew into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

    Villa’s belief ebbed away and Aaron Wan-Bissaka missed a fine chance to make it 3-0 three minutes after the break, heading Marcus Rashford’s centre wide.

    Rashford had a goal ruled out with Pogba offside, but United did not have to wait long for their third which arrived after 58 minutes.

    With Villa’s confidence shot, they left Pogba free 18 yards out and he had time to sweep a fine finish low past Reina – his first United goal since April 2019.

    Martial smacked the bar as United threatened to run riot, but they were forced to settle for what they had after Rashford was denied by Reina late on.
