  • Villa: Matty Cash is second in the Premier League in crosses (55)

Why you should back Manchester United

The Red Devils have faced Villa 12 times in FA Cup matches and have won 10 of them.They also have won their last nine home games in the competition by a combined score of 20-2. Manchester United still has the firepower to hang with any team, and it could put more effort into this competition with the league and Champions League titles long shots at this point. Cristiano Ronaldo is the focal point of the attack and has 14 goals in all competitions since rejoining the team in the fall. 

Bruno Fernandes has five goals and nine assists in a complementary role to his Portugal international teammate. Phil Jones had a strong start in the middle of the back line against Wolves in place of injured Harry Maguire, and Victor Lindelof should return from COVID to play alongside him. Only four teams have fewer shots on target in league play than Villa (64), while Man U has the fifth-most (85). 

Why you should back Aston Villa

The Villans have confidence off their 1-0 road win in September, and Man United has been all over the place this season. The Red Devils were outshot 19-9 by Wolves in a 1-0 loss last Monday, and despite their attacking talent they have been sitting back to protect a leaky defense. United has scored just three more goals than it has allowed. Villa should have both Ollie Watkins (five goals) and Danny Ings (four) available, and United has yielded 15 goals in its last 11 matches.

Aston Villa lost 2-1 to Brentford last Sunday, but it had 55 percent possession and a 16-10 edge in shots in that match. It has scored at least once in seven of its past eight matches, with two goals in four of those. Tyrone Mings also is expected to return to help the defense, and he is an anchor for the team and keeps his team motivated.
