The last time …
Jones knows the prediction
I had to check prices three times to make sure there was no mistake. Yes, Manchester United are really the favorites to win this football match.
Just looking at their scores under Ralph Rangnick would make their Jolly 6/5 mark with Sky Bet look respectable. But for those trying to get ahead in the markets where possible, key performance levels and metrics are more reliable for measuring the team’s overall model line. And it doesn’t take analytical genius to conclude that Manchester United are struggling in nearly every aspect of their game under the new manager. All you need is two eyes.
The manner in which Aston Villa were eliminated from the FA Cup at Old Trafford was a bit of a mystery. But it looks like revenge will be on the table at Villa Park. Pulling the no-bet angle at 5/4 on Steven Gerrard’s side is a confident bet.
Of course, at some point this is the talent of the individuals within the United squad, their performance levels will skyrocket and a prediction of this nature would seem very stupid. But in terms of what we’ve seen of this inconsistent and frustrated group of players against the likes of Norwich, Newcastle and Burnley over the past few weeks, they simply have to be confronted.
Predict the score: 2-1
Bet Angle: Aston Villa Draw No Bet (5/4 with Sky Bet)
- Aston Villa have not won in their last 22 home games against Manchester United (D7 L15) since their 3-1 victory in August 1995. It is the longest run for one club against another in the history of the Premier League.
- Aston Villa are looking to win back-to-back league matches against Manchester United for the first time since November 1976, while achieving their last league double over the Red Devils in 1954-55.
- Manchester United scored the first goal in 33 Premier League matches against Aston Villa, winning 32 and drawing in one of those matches. It is the largest number a team has opened without losing to any team in the history of the competition.
- Manchester United have won 299 away matches in the Premier League and will be the first team to reach 300 matches in the competition by winning here. No team has won more Premier League matches (37) or first leg matches (17) in the history of the competition than the Red Devils against Aston Villa.
- None of Aston Villa’s last 16 Premier League games ended at level (W6 L10), with the latter team running longer without a draw in the league between September 1964 and April 1965 (29 games).
- Dean Smith was manager of Aston Villa after their 1-0 win earlier this season against Manchester United, while Steven Gerrard will take charge of that match. Should Villans win, they would be the first team to complete the league double over Manchester United with a different manager in every game since Bolton Wanderers in 1950-51 (Walter Rowley and Bill Reading).
- As a player, Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard ended up winning 10 Premier League games against Manchester United, a record shared with Nicholas Anelka, John Terry and Petr Cech. However, including goalkeepers, only one of the last 18 managers has won their first Premier League game against the Red Devils, as Mikel Arteta won for Arsenal in January 2020.
