Manchester United will look to extend their unbeaten run of nine Premier League matches when Aston Villa arrive at Old Trafford on New Year’s Day.
The Red Devils will go joint-top of the Premier League with a win over Aston Villa, but Dean Smith’s in-form Villa could move into the top four with an away win.
Villa have only won one of the 43 previous Premier League matches against Manchester United, although that win did happen at Old Trafford.
However, on a run of six unbeaten games in the Premier League and just one defeat in their last nine top-flight away games, Aston Villa will arrive in Manchester with confidence.
Tyrone Mings and Ross Barkley return for Aston Villa this weekend. Manchester United will be missing Victor Lindelof.
