Manchester United may have just rescued their season with an FA Cup win over West Ham, but they still do harbor ambitions for a top four finish in the Premier League, which would guarantee them Champions League football next season. Standing in their way is a Aston Villa team on the brink of relegation. Click down to watch the live stream!
Aston Villa has endured a torrid season, they sit rock bottom of the Premier League and if they don’t get any sort of positive result in this one they WILL be demoted from England’s top division into the second tier. In some respect, they’ve already accepted their fate and are already prepping for next year.
Manchester United’s hunky players got themselves into a mess at Tottenham Hotspur last time out, losing 3-0 in a game that really damaged their hopes of finishing in the Champions League places. They can’t afford any more slip-ups and have to win this one, and hope other results go their way as we come to the end of the season.
That’ll be helped by the news that star striker Wayne Rooney is back from long-term injury. Whether or not he starts the game, or comes from the bench, he’s bound to influence how United finish their season.
With Manchester United in need of the three points to keep up their slim hopes of Champions League qualification, they should win this at a canter. Villa are all but doomed and are staring Premier League relegation in the face. They will already be thinking about plans for next season in the Championship.
