Manchester United vs Aston Villa Short Preview & Team News: Manchester United are well and truly in with a chance to overtake City for the fourth place in the league considering they have favorable matches including three back to back home games up next and they can very well overtake City and might run Arsenal close for third place finish.
Aston Villa has been relegated and now much to play for what was one of the worst premier league team in history. Aston Villa has just won three games whole season and it does not look like they will add to the tally by the end of the season as they have been relegated and players moral will be record low.
