Manchester United vs Aston Villa Betting Tips

Manchester United will host Aston Villa at the Old Trafford in Manchester on 2nd January 2021 at 1:30 IST. Both the teams are in some great form and this expected to be a cracker of a contest in the New Year.

Manchester United Form & Team News

Manchester United is currently in the second position of the English Premier League Table with 30 points. They have played 15 matches, out of which they have won nine, drew three and lost three. Out of the eight home matches played, Manchester United have won just three matches and have lost three as well. Manchester United are unbeaten in the last seven matches.

United’s injury list is very short with Victor Lindelof, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones on the list. As United are playing in just three days’ time, Ole is likely to make some changes to the playing XI from the match against Wolves. Anthony Martial might get a nod ahead of Edinson Cavani, even Scott McTominay might start as well. 

Aston Villa Form & Team News

Aston Villa is in the fifth position of the English Premier League Table with 26 points. They have played 14 matches, out of which they have won eight, lost four and drew two. They are just four points behind Manchester United and also have a game in hand. Aston Villa is unbeaten in their last five matches and also they have just one loss in their last five away matches.

Ross Barkley, Wesley Moraes and Trezeguet will be the key absentees, but this won’t affect much to their plans. They are most likely to stick with the same playing XI, as they had an extra day of rest than Manchester United. Their captain Jack Grealish is in some exceptional form, he has scored five goals and assisted six goals so far. Ollie Watkins is the team’s leading scorer with six goals.

Our Tipster’s Angle

A win here for either side can take them closer to the League leaders Liverpool. But Manchester United is a more experienced side in the English Premier League and is likely to come out on top.

Tip 1: Manchester United to win

In the last five head to head matches in the English Premier League, Manchester United have won four matches and drew one. Manchester United have not lost a match in their last seven matches. Also, Manchester United did not start the season well at home but are gaining momentum now, they have won the last two matches at home and have scored seven goals. Aston Villa is not that far behind Manchester United, they also haven’t lost a single match in the last five matches. But considering the home advantage, Manchester is more likely to win the match at 1.71 odds available on the Casumo sportsbook.

Tip 2: Total Goals Under 3.25

In the last five head to head matches, only one match had four goals and the rest were under 3.25 goals. It includes three 1-0, one 3-0 and one 2-2 draw. In the last five home matches, Manchester United had over three goals in just one match which was a 6-2 win over Leeds United and the rest of the matches had under two goals. Similarly, none of Aston Villa’s last five away matches had goals over 3.25. So this might turn out to be a low scoring encounter and the total goals will probably be under 3.25 at 1.72 odds available on the Casumo sportsbook.


Both the teams are exceptional this season and have improved a lot this season compared to last season. There is nothing much to separate between the two sides, but Manchester United is a slight favorite to win the match. Summarizing a couple of bets mentioned above

  1.  Manchester United to win @ 1.71
  2. Total Goals Under 3.25 @ 1.72
