Manchester United will play host to Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Saturday, marking the club's return to Premier League action. Saturday's match between Manchester United and Chelsea will take off at Stamford Bridge at 12:30 p.m., with the Red Devils kicking things off alongside the Blues.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United team will host Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Saturday in an attempt to get back on track following a humiliating midweek loss in the EFL Cup to Chelsea. Manchester United, under the leadership of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, were eliminated from the Champions League by West Ham United, who defeated them 1-0 at Old Trafford. In the EFL Cup third round, it was sweet retribution for David Moye's West Ham United, who had first lost at home to Manchester United in the Premier League, but had come back to win against the Red Devils when it mattered most in the Premier League.
Old Trafford will be the setting for Manchester United's match against a resurgent West Ham United, which could bring their unbeaten run in the Premier League to an end. Despite losing twice this season, once in the Champions League against Young Boys and most recently against West Ham United in the EFL Cup, Manchester United has gone undefeated in the Premier League with four victories and one tie so far this season.
Despite Manchester United's great start to the 2021/2022 Premier League season, the Red Devils could suffer their first league defeat this weekend when they host Aston Villa at Old Trafford in the first match of the season.
1. Aston Villa outperforms West Ham in terms of strength:
In contrast to West Ham United, against whom Manchester United has played twice in a row, the Red Devils will be up against a considerably tougher opponent in Aston Villa this weekend. Aston Villa demonstrated this season that they are one of the most difficult teams to beat when they tormented Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea twice in the Premier League. It took the brilliance of Romelu Lukaku to save Chelsea's blushes in the first confrontation against Aston Villa, and it took penalty shootouts to save Chelsea's blushes in the second encounter against Aston Villa.
If Manchester United makes the same mistakes as they did against West Ham United in their game against Aston Villa this Saturday, they will almost certainly lose.
The team is facing a rigorous schedule this weekend, and it is possible that some key players will be rested ahead of their crucial Champions League match against Villarreal the following week. If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to field his strongest team against either Aston Villa or Villarreal in the Champions League, he will have to determine which match is more important to him than the other.
