Manchester United will try to keep its unbeaten record intact Saturday when it hosts Aston Villa in an English Premier League match at Old Trafford. The Red Devils (4-1-0) have hopes of making a run at the league title, and fans are excited with the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo on a team that was already expected to contend. Man U leads the league in goals with 13 but has been a little suspect on defense, allowing four. Aston Villa (2-1-2) also can be dangerous in attack and appears to be gaining momentum, but it has struggled even more on the back end. United has an 18-game unbeaten run (14-4-0) against the Lions.   

Kickoff is set for 7:30 a.m. ET in Manchester, England. Caesars Sportsbook lists Manchester United as the -250 favorite (risk $250 to win $100) in its latest Manchester United vs. Aston Villa odds, while Aston Villa is the +675 underdog.

Why you should back Manchester United

The Red Devils have the firepower to make life miserable for any defense, and the Lions have already yielded seven goals this season. Ronaldo hasn’t missed a beat, scoring three times in two league matches since his surprising return to the team. He led Italy’s Serie A with 29 goals for Juventus and has scored at least 18 in 14-straight club seasons. United has another top scorer in Bruno Fernandes, who has a team-high four goals after tallying 18 last season. Youngster Mason Greenwood, 19, also has scored three times in this campaign.        

Aston Villa has scored more than one goal just once in the past 11 matchups, and United won nine of those. David de Gea has been solid in goal, leaving Dean Henderson to push for a loan transfer, and the Man U defense has star power. Raphael Varane was a huge addition, coming over from Real Madrid to join Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka on the back line.

Why you should back Aston Villa

The Lions lost captain Jack Grealish to a record transfer, but the team reinvested much of its windfall. It added striker Danny Ings from Southampton, playmaking midfielder Emiliano Buendia from Norwich and winger Leon Bailey from Bayer Leverkusen. Ings has a team-high two goals and two assists and has been a dangerous scorer in the league for seven seasons. Buendia had 15 goals with Norwich last season and had 34 assists over his three seasons there. Captain Tyrone Mings anchors the defense and keeps his teammates motivated.     

Aston Villa appears to be starting to gel, and it followed a 3-0 loss to Chelsea with a 3-0 victory against a strong Everton squad last weekend. It is 3-2-1 in its past six games in all competitions. The Lions drubbed Barrow 6-0 in the League Cup last month and played to a 1-1 draw but lost on penalties against Chelsea in the EFL Cup on Wednesday. The Blues didn’t play their top lineup, but the result should give the Lions confidence. Aston Villa rejoined the top flight for 2019-20 and barely avoided a quick relegation, but it was 11th last season and sits 10th now.
