Manchester United vs Aston Villa – FA Cup Betting Tips

Manchester United welcomes Aston Villa in an intriguing FA  Cup clash. A few days before this FA Cup clash, Aston Villa announced the loan signing of Coutinho from Barcelona, and this would likely serve as a boost to Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa, who ended 2021 with a loss and started 2022 with a loss too.

All is not going well at Manchester United currently, and even though they’ve changed their manager and lost just once in their last 5 games in all competitions, there are still grave concerns about their performances.

This FA Cup clash is a chance for United’s coach to prove that he can win trophies and turn the team on its head, but will Steven Gerard’s Aston Villa allow them? We don’t think so, but here are our tips for this game.

Manchester United Form and Team News

As mentioned above, Manchester United has only lost 1 of their last 5 matches. Before losing this match, they went 8 games unbeaten in all competitions, drawing 3 and winning 5.

Those run of games was littered with unconvincing displays, and they managed to win or get a point. A change of manager hasn’t helped Manchester United much, too, as the players seem lost with the new manager’s tactics.

However, the team is star-studded, and most rely on individual capabilities to bail them out.

For the team news,  Manchester United has some players that would be missing this game, and they’re Eric Bailey, Lindelof, Maguire, Pogba, and Martial.

Aston Villa Form and Team News

Aston Villa has experienced a remarkable transformation under Steven Gerrard, but currently, things aren’t going as planned.

They have lost 3 of their last 5 matches, although two were against Chelsea and Liverpool. They took the lead in their last match against Brentford but couldn’t protect their lead and eventually lost 2-1 despite having much possession and shots.

Their bad form is more evident if their last 10 games in all competitions are checked. They have won just 4 games and lost 6, but they have always put up a fight on the brightest side.

For the team news, Aston Villa will be without Nakamba, Ashley Young, and Leon Bailey for this FA Cup trip to Old Trafford.

Our Tipsters Angle

Manchester United really need to get their season on track and can’t afford to crash out of the FA Cup so early because it would enrage the fans. However, they have not been the best of form with issues both on and off the pitch.

Aston Villa will be salivating to snatch a win in this match. Winning Manchester United will bring back their confidence coupled with their star signing, Coutinho. The last time the teams met, Aston Villa won Manchester United and might be looking for a repeat.

Below are our tips for this fixture:

Tip 1:  Manchester United Over 4.5 Corners

Manchester United hasn’t been great in match results and on-pitch performances, but they have been great getting corner kicks in their games. 

Due to the nature of their attacking via the flanks, they have been winning corner kicks.  

Also, checking their H2H with Aston Villa, Manchester United has had over 4.5 corner kicks in 4 of their last matches against Aston Villa.

Manchester United Over 4.5 Corners is available at Casumo Bookie at 1.36 odds.

Tip 2:  Aston Villa to Score

Aston Villa hasn’t been great in winning their matches, but they have often managed to find the net, even against stronger oppositions like Manchester City and Chelsea.

In their last 10 games in all competitions, they have managed to score in 7 of them and also, in their last 5 games against Manchester United in all competitions, they have managed to score in 4 of them.

Manchester United backline is having defensive issues, plus the fact that this is a cup match and some senior players might be rested, we think Aston Villa will find the net in this match.

Aston Villa to score or Over 0.5 Goals is placed at 1.48 odds at the Casumo Sportsbook.


Aston Villa and Manchester United both need this win to stay in the FA Cup this season. While there is no pressure on Steven Gerrard to win a trophy, there is undoubtedly tremendous pressure on Ralf Ragnick to win a trophy, and the FA Cup is the easiest they can get at the moment.

However, Aston Villa is known not to make it easy for teams, and we expect them to give Manchester United a good fight irrespective of the starting lineup they field for this match.
