Saturday Premier League action from Old Trafford, as Man U take on Villa.

Man U will take on Villa on Saturday, as third takes on tenth in the League.

With the Premier League season well into its stride, Manchester United have managed to gain 13 points

With two wins in a row under his belt, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer takes his Man U team into this game full of confidence, and hopeful of another successive victory.

Man U’s League position speaks for itself, as they continue their rich vein of winning form. Their last win, was the 3rd in a row, a rich vein of form that has drastically improved their Premier League position. They currently sit in third place, with a total of 13 points having won four matches and drawn one game.

Playing at home, Man U have won two games.

Manchester United will have secured 16 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

A solid defensive team

It’s an easy statement to make, but to win you simply have to score more goals than your opponent. Man U have been consistently applying this principle, whilst remaining defensively solid as a unit this season, with four goals in their previous games. Man U have delivered goals in spades this season, largely down to the key attacking force of Bruno Fernandes (4), Cristiano Ronaldo (3), and Mason Greenwood (3).

Going into Saturday’s game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer without three of his players, due to illness or injury.

Aston Villa have so far accrued seven points in this season of the Premier League

With a win in their previous game, (3-0) against Everton, Villa will likely be in a positive frame of mind.

That’s a run of one wins for Villa. They currently stand tenth in the League, with seven points having won two fixtures, drawn one game, and lost two matches.

Villa have lost two matches of their two League matches on the road this season.

A win in this fixture, would take Aston Villa’s points from 7 to 10, so far this season.

Good Attacking Performance

This has been a good season so far for Villa, in terms of goals scored (8). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Danny Ings (2), Matty Cash (1), and John McGinn (1). Villa have conceded seven goals.

Villa are missing six players through injury or illness. This will affect Dean Smith’s selection choices significantly.
