SOCCER Saturday is back in December, and I really need to have a good weekend in order to turn this minor blip in form around.
England Premier League
Man Utd to Score Over 1.5 goals v Aston Villa @ 1.73 (Bet365) – 2.5 points
Manchester United come to this game away at Villa Park with some great form behind them winning their last 6 games on the trot against some good opposition including Liverpool, Southampton and Arsenal along with the minnows Stoke, Hull and Crystal Palace.
Man United will definitely have bee in form and a lot of that has been due to their attacking options up front. With RVP, Rooney, Di Maria, Mata getting into good scoring form they have managed to score 2 goals in 5 out of those last 6 wins on the trot. What is even more exciting for Man United fans is that they have scored a minimum of 2 goals in 8 out of their 9 last matches played against Aston Villa and on the current streak, you can expect them to cash in on that.
Aston Villa were on a run of poor form where they had conceded a lot of goals around 2 per game for 6 games on the trot; but in recent games have improved their defense but conceding 4 goals in their last 5 games. What is not going to help Villa tonight is that 2 out of their back 4 are suspended namely Hutton and Richardson; which will give United wingers Valencia and Young to go after Cissoko and Lowton at the full back positions. Villa had managed some good results with an almost fit squad; but injuries are hurting them as Westwood, Cole and Baker will miss this game through injury.
Even though Villa have improved slightly in their defenses, they have not been able to handle Man United a lot of the time. Couple that with United’s recent scoring form where they have been in free-flowing scoring form; I expect them to put on the goals up tonight.
