Both sides lost on their last league outing with Villa crashing to a 2-0 defeat to struggling Fulham while United went down 1-0 at home to Newcastle.

The defeat to the Magpies made it back to back losses for the Red Devils and David Moyes will be keen to avoid a third successive league defeat, something that has not occurred since 2001

United currently sit ninth in the table some 13 points behind leaders Arsenal and another defeat on Sunday would pile the pressure on the former Everton manager.

Thankfully respite has come in the form of European Football which despite its pressure, has proved to be a welcome distraction from his domestic woes.

A midweek win over Shakhtar Donetsk saw United go through their group unbeaten claiming nine points from nine at Old Trafford for the first time in six seasons.

Old Trafford may be a fortress on the Champions League stage but in the league it has proved far from such with United already dropping 11 points at home.

Their away form has only been marginally better with united winning drawing two and losing two of their 7 games on the road.

Villa meanwhile have already dropped 14 points at home, the worst record of the top 15 clubs in the Premier League and only “bettered” by West Brom, Fulham and Sunderland.

Paul Lambert’s side have shown they can mix it with the best this season beating Arsenal and Manchester City, the latter, along with Cardiff, the only games they have won in front of their own fans.

Consistency however has been a problem for the Villians a fact strenghted by the fact that they have beaten Cardiff and Southampton, drew with West Brom and Sunderland and lost to Fulham in their last five games.

A win for Villa would see them move level on points with United who in turn would move up to 8th depending on the result between Newcastle and Southampton.

Villa will be without the suspended Fabian Delph and injured trio Ron Vlaar, forward Libor Kozak and defender Joe Bennett while United will welcome back Wayne Rooney after his missed the clash with Newcastle through suspension.

Moyes will assess the fitness of Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic and Chris Smalling before the game while Marouanne Fellaini could miss out. Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher are defintitely missing for United.
