Manchester United Welcome Aston Villa
Manchester United coach Sir Alex Ferguson is confident that the club will solve their defensive problems and win the Barclays Premier League title. Next up for Manchester United is the crucial clash with Alex McLeish´s relegation struggling Aston Villa at Old Trafford, which the reigning league champions quite simply need to win.
After the morale-sapping defeat to Wigan Athletic at DW Stadium in midweek, Sir Alex Ferguson´s troops prepare to take on Aston Villa at Old Trafford this weekend. The last time Aston Villa and Manchester United played each other was at Villa Park back in December 2011, and The Manchester Reds ran out narrow 1–0 winners courtesy of an early first half goal from versatile defender Phil Jones. The Birmingham outfit are currently placed 15th in the English Premier League table and only six points clear of the relegation zone, having won just one of their previous ten matches. On paper, the Manchester United players should dominate the contest and secure three important points.
