Manchester United are back on the Premiership trail as they are two points from league leaders, Chelsea, when they face Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon at Old Trafford. The reigning champions are set to close the gap between them and Chelsea but they will have to do it without several key members of the first team squad. Aston Villa will be its full strengthen as they travel north to face the Red Devils.
Manchester United was once 5 points away from Chelsea until last weekend when they pulverized Portsmouth away 4-0 while Manchester City did United a favor by beating Chelsea. Their midweek result in the Champions League was also positive as they saw off Wolfsburg 4-1 with Michael Owen hitting a hat trick. Manager Alex Ferguson will have to deal with the fact that he will be without Wes Brown, Gary Neville, Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Edwin van der Sar, Owen Hargreaves, Da Sila, Jonny Evans and John O’Shea.
Aston Villa are currently 5th in the table with 8 points behind Manchester United. The Villains are on a mission to fight for the top placing that will give them the chance to play Champions League next season. It is vital for Martin O’Neill’s men to come up with the goods at Old Trafford. They are boost with players like John Carew and Stuart Downing being available again. Vila’s fan will be happy to know that Carew was the only player on target with penalties last weekend 3-0 win against Hull City.
Aston Villa have never won a match against Manchester United since the Premier League was established. This could work in Manchester United’ s favor as its most likely that they will have to field some midfielder veterans in the heart of defense when they face Villa. A stalemate could be worth the punt while an away win would be a cheeky bet for those of you wanting more.
