Manchester United vs Aston Villa Match Analysis and Prediction

Manchester United will end their pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia by taking on fellow Premier League outfit Aston Villa in a friendly on Saturday with kickoff at 1:45 pm.

 Manchester United continued their impressive form in pre-season on Tuesday with a 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace. Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, and Jadon Sancho were on the scoresheet for the 20-time English champions.

The win follows back-to-back victories over Liverpool and Melbourne Victory. The Red Devils will now round off this leg of their pre-season tour with a clash against Villa in Perth before heading back to Europe for friendlies with Atletico Madrid and Rayo Vallecano next weekend.

Man United will then begin their 2022-23 Premier League campaign at home to Brighton & Hove Albion on August 7th, and it will be fascinating to see how they perform next term: after finishing down in sixth position last season they failed to qualify for the Champions League.

Villa will now take on Manchester United and Rennes in their final two friendlies of the summer before opening their 2022-23 Premier League season away to newly promoted Bournemouth on August 6. They secured the Queensland Champions Cup with a 1-0 success over Brisbane Roar on Wednesday night, with Cameron Archer netting the only goal of the contest.
