Kickoff is set for 9:05 a.m. ET at Villa Park Stadium in Birmingham, England. Manchester United is listed at -125 (risk $125 to win $100) on the money-line, Aston Villa is at +350, while a draw would return +265 in the latest Aston Villa vs. Manchester United odds at William Hill Sportsbook, and the over-under for total goals scored is 2.5.

Top predictions for Manchester United vs. Aston Villa
Green sees one team as a clear favorite between Aston Villa and Manchester United with offense taking center stage, so he is leaning over 2.5 goals. Although Bruno Fernandes fuels the Manchester United offense with 16 goals and 11 assists, forward Marcus Rashford has also been a thorn in the side of the opposition. He is second on the team with 10 goals and eight assists in 31 starts. Manchester United is unbeaten in 24 Premier League away games, just three short of Arsenal’s record from April 2003 to September 2004.
Aston Villa will be looking to beat a top-two team in the Premier League for the first time since beating Chelsea 1-0 in March 2014. Since that win, Aston Villa is 0-9-3 against the league’s top-two. Forward Ollie Watkins is closing in on a club record and is just one shy for most Premier League goals scored by an Englishman in a season. Julian Joachim scored 14 during the 1998-99 season.
