What to Know

Manchester United is headed to Villa Park to take on Aston Villa with hopes of winning their second match of the season against the surprisingly competitive Villa side. While United famously had their previously scheduled match cancelled due to protests outside (and eventually inside) Old Trafford, the side was in good form before that and hasn’t actually lost a match since their shock January 27th home defeat to Sheffield United.

Aston Villa still have a spot in the top half of the table to play for as they currently sit in 11th place, only one point behind 10th place Arsenal, and two behind ninth place Leeds while also having one and two more matches to play than the teams directly above them in the table. Villa are still waiting for their talisman Jack Grealish to return from injury and have struggled to reach their early season hieghts without him.
