Manchester United vs Aston Villa News, Stats and Predictions

 

Roy Keane came up with the perfect response to Ian Wright as the former Arsenal man talked up Aston Villa’s chances against Manchester United.

Steven Gerrard’s side make the trip to Old Trafford on Monday (tonight) for the third round tie in the FA Cup, and they’ll be looking to make the most of United’s recent problems.

Questions continue to be asked about Ralf Rangnick and his players, with United failing to improve on their performances this season since the German arrived as interim manager.

Last week’s defeat to Wolves saw United produce another lacklustre display and has led to further reports of unrest among the squad, although some players – including Marcus Rashford – have denied there is any rift in the dressing room.

Yet United captain Harry Maguire has revealed he has held crisis talks with Rangnick and the players, putting the spotlight firmly back on them ahead of Monday’s cup tie.

To add to their worries, Villa will head to Old Trafford buoyed by the signing of Philippe Coutinho on loan from Barcelona, while manager Steven Gerrard has overseen a resurgence since replacing Dean Smith as manager.

While on ITV punditry, Arsenal legend Wright was asked whether Villa will fancy their chances at Old Trafford and said: “Of course they will, I think anybody will.

“What Wolves did when they went there, they believed they could win and they did, why wouldn’t Villa think the same?”

Keane was also on punditry duty, and the former United captain didn’t miss his opportunity to fire a dig at the Gunners.

Keane replied: “You say that, but Arsenal got beat there didn’t they?”, referencing United’s 3-2 win back in December, leading to a chuckle from Wright.

United will be desperate to rediscover some form in the cup against Villa, with Rangnick’s side also facing them in the Premier League the following Saturday.

The interim boss faces some tough decisions over his team given recent performances, and the balancing act between the race for the top four, and United’s last realistic chance of silverware this season.
