Aston Villa head to Old Trafford as big betting outsiders although there is plenty of positivity surrounding the Birmingham side after a 3-0 win over Everton on Saturday evening. Dean Smith saw his team score three goals in the space of ten minutes against the Toffees, with the manager delighted with the way that the team performed and this was despite John McGinn having concussion in the first half.

Previously to this win, the Villans lost 3-0 at Chelsea although they actually caused the tightest defence in the EPL all manner of problems. Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings are a strike pairing that can help fire the visitors to a top-half finish this season and we think that Villa are a cracking bet on the Asian Handicap market with a +1.5 goal start.

As for Manchester United, they were full of goals when overcoming Newcastle United by a 4-1 scoreline although there was a typical element of fortune about the recent 2-1 win over West Ham United and it’s clear that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a puppet manager who really can’t effect changes mid-game that are going to help his team challenge too hard for the title.

BETTING VERDICT

Aston Villa +1.5
