The respective form of these sides suggests only one outcome, and it could be a long night for Aston Villa. Manchester United completely outclassed Brighton in their last away game, and the margin tonight could be even wider. 0-4 United is the prediction.
Best bet for Aston Villa v Manchester United.
Manchester United’s current form have put them at the front of the pack chasing a top four finish, but as well as the team’s ambitions, there are a number of personal accolades to be accomplished. Anthony Martial is one goal away from 50 Premier League goals for Ole Gunnar Solkjaer’s side. Mason Greenwood could become the first teenager to score more than 17 goals for United in a season, with 15 goals currently. But Bruno Fernandes has to feature in our selected bet. The Portugal international has been a revelation, with six goals and five assists in his nine games for Manchester United so far. Expect Fernandes to score and even assist a goal this evening.
