Where to watch Man United vs Aston Villa live stream, TV channel, lineups, prediction for Premier League game

Erik ten Hag will be hoping Santa Claus dropped his Manchester United players some inspiration and determination for Christmas this year. They’re without a win in four games and haven’t scored in that period. 

They were most recently beaten 2-0 by David Moyes’ West Ham in the early Saturday kickoff in arguably their most toothless performance of the season, and that’s saying something. 

Unai Emery’s high-flying Aston Villa will be hoping to put their disappointing 1-1 defeat at home to Sheffield United on Friday evening to one side as he looks to get his men back on track.

Man United vs Aston Villa prediction

Surely Manchester United’s goalless streak can’t continue? But their four-game run without a win certainly could be extended to five. Villa come into this one on the back of a disappointing draw to Sheffield United but even against the odds late in the game, they found a way to salvage a point after going behind late in the second half. 

Prediction: Man United 1-3 Aston Villa
