Aston Villa vs Manchester Prediction: Sportpesa Mega Jackpot Predictions
Despite surpassing expectations, Aston Villa, under the leadership of Unai Emery, aims to secure consistency and maintain their current top-four standing.
The team has encountered a rough patch lately, winning only one of their last five matches across all competitions, including an FA Cup exit at the hands of Chelsea.
Emery emphasizes that securing a European qualification place in the Premier League remains the primary goal.
Emery is eager to restore Villa Park’s reputation as a formidable venue, especially after experiencing back-to-back home defeats, a stark contrast to their impressive performance in the preceding 22 matches at the stadium.
While the manager has fond memories of a 3-1 victory against Manchester United in his first game in charge, Villa has struggled in head-to-head matchups at home since October 1999, winning only once and losing the last three meetings, albeit away.
The previous encounter on Boxing Day saw Manchester United staging a remarkable comeback from a 2-0 deficit to secure a 3-2 win, marking a turning point in their season.
United has shown significant improvement, scoring 13 of their 31 Premier League goals in the last five matches, coupled with advancing in the FA Cup.
Their recent three consecutive away wins indicate a positive shift, potentially marking their best away run since October 2020.
The upcoming match provides an opportunity for Erik ten Hag’s side to narrow the gap with Villa to just five points.
