Premier League: Man United Backed To Beat Aston Villa

Fallen Premier League giants Manchester United will get the better of Aston Villa during their league clash on Sunday evening according to BBC Sports columnist Mark Lawrenson.

According to him, the Red Devils will return to winning ways against league newcomers Aston Villa.

Manchester United drew their last league game with another newly promoted team Sheffield United as the two clubs shared a six-goal thriller for a 3-3 draw last weekend.

Mark Lawrenson is a former Liverpool defender and he’s backing Manchester United to beat Liverpool 2-0 at Old Trafford in the week 14 clash.

Nothing other than a win over Aston Villa will suffice as the Red Devils try to capitalize on the top four teams dropping points.

Manchester United started the weekend with a deficit of nine points off the top four places with Chelsea occupying the final spot in those positions.

Chelsea were beaten 1-0 at home by London rivals West Ham United on Saturday and that has given Manchester United the impetus to close the gap on the Blues to just six points with a win over Aston Villa.

Manchester City are also a member of the top four at the moment and they dropped points as well this weekend following the 2-2 draw recorded at the home of Newcastle United in the early kickoff on Saturday.
