Kick Off – 15.00pm Saturday 16th April 2016

Manchester United play hosts to Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Saturday in the Premier League, as the home side look to continue their push for Champions League football for next season.

Manchester United suffered a 3-0 defeat at title chasing Tottenham last time out. Three goals in the last three minutes from Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld and Erik Lamela sealed victory for the side from north London.

United are now four points behind fourth place Manchester City in the race for a place in the top four. Louis van Gaal’s team are desperately in need of a win to keep those Champions League hopes alive.

The visitor’s relegation to the Championship has been all-but confirmed, after the Villans suffered a 2-1 home defeat against Bournemouth last time out in the Premier League. Steve Cook and Joshua King gave the Cherries a two goal lead, before Andre Ayew scored a late consolation goal for Villa.

The defeat means that the Villans are not yet mathematically relegated, but it is now only a matter of time before the Villans relegation is confirmed.
