Manchester United vs Aston Villa LIVE!

 

Erik ten Hag is in dire need of a win as a new era begins at the club. Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s 25 per cent stake in the club was confirmed on Christmas Eve, with the British billionaire set to take over footballing matters as the boyhood fan looks to lead the club back to past glory.

 

Ratcliffe has quite the job on his hands with United currently amid their worst start to a season since being relegated half a century ago, while the club are already out of both Europe – having finished bottom of a group they should have qualified from on paper – and the Carabao Cup.

 

Aston Villa, meanwhile, are having the season under the tutelage of Unai Emery that United fans will have expected Ten Hag to be masterminding. Sitting third heading into the game and just one point off the top at the start of the day, Villa are flying but their away form has been a concern at times – will it be so today? Follow the game LIVE below with our dedicated match blog.
