Manchester United Preview – Can Man United push on?

A last-gasp winner from Marcus Rashford handed Manchester United a 1-0 home win over Wolves to give the hosts a belated but most welcome Christmas present along with extending the host’s unbeaten run in the top flight to nine matches overall.

Having won seven of these last nine matches, Manchester United seem to be hitting their straps at just about the right time and have emerged as serious contenders to Liverpool’s title ambitions, with the Red Devils sitting in 2nd spot ahead of these New Years Eve fixtures.

After a disappointing start to the new season at home, Manchester United are now also finding their feet at Old Trafford as the hosts have won three of their last four matches with victories over West Brom, Leeds United and Wolves, and they look a decent prospect here on Friday night too.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Aston Villa Preview – Can Villa spoil United’s party?

Aston Villa are another side who extended their unbeaten run in the Premier League over the Christmas period as Dean Smith’s side held Chelsea to a creditable 1-1 draw away from home at Stamford Bridge which extended the visitor’s unbeaten run to five matches in the top flight.

This improved sequence of results include wins against Wolves, West Brom and Crystal Palace but they’re expected to have their work cut out to get anything out of this upcoming trip to Old Trafford as they look to overcome a rejuvenated Manchester United outfit.

Villa’s results away from home have nevertheless been promising though as The Villains have suffered just the one defeat out of their last nine matches on the road in the Premier League, although they have lost four of the last six meetings against the Red Devils.
