For a young Villa side this is certainly a tough test. Paul Lambert has had a mixed spell since arriving at Villa Park from Norwich City, although they did win at Sunderland last time out.
This 1-0 win was achieved thanks to Gabby Agbonlahor’s first goal in a year and the home side will need him to provide a spark once again. He may only be 26-years-old, but he is one of the most experienced players in this new look side.
With Manchester City to come after this, it is a tough spell for Lambert’s men, especially when you consider they are 17th in the table going into this weekend. They will want to compete on Saturday and look to improve on a home record that has only seen them pick up one home win so far.
As for Manchester United, they are flying at the moment. With Van Persie slotting in perfectly and banging in the goals, the Red Devils find themselves top of the table after four wins in succession. The Dutchman is very much fancied to find the first goal of the game, attracting a price of 11/4, while his counterpart Wayne Rooney offers a little more value at 7/2.
They have also picked up recent wins against Chelsea and Arsenal, so it is important they follow this up with another three points over Aston Villa.
Despite Villa’s inconsistent form, this is never an easy fixture for United and they would be more than happy to repeat last season’s 1-0 success. The points are all that matter and they will believe they have more than enough in-form attacking talent to break through the Villa defence.
The home side will give this one a good go though with the crowd firmly behind them. It should be an entertaining 90 minutes of Premier League football from 5.30pm on Saturday evening.
