Following their hard fought win over the Hammers yesterday, United's next Premier league game will see them welcome Aston Villa to Old Trafford. The Red Devils will be looking to make it five Premier league wins so far this season, one that could see them end the weekend at the top of the league depending on how many goals they score.
The match is scheduled to kick-off by 12:30 West Africa Standard time this Saturday and in this regard, check out United's last five Premier league home meetings with Aston Villa and how they fared;
1- Manchester United 2 vs 1 Aston Villa (1 January 2021)
Goals from Anthony Martial and Bruno Fernandes helped United to secure their first Premier league win of the year against Villa.
2- Manchester United 2 vs 2 Aston Villa (1 Dec 2019)
Tyrone Mings' first Premier League goal earned Aston Villa a 2-2 draw against Manchester United.
3- Manchester United 1 vs 0 Aston Villa (16 April 2016)
A first half strike from Marcus Rashford was the difference as United sent Aston Villa down to the Championship.

A double from Ander Herrera coupled with another strike from Wayne Rooney propelled the Red Devils to a 3-1 win at home.
5- Manchester United 4 vs 1 Aston Villa (29 March 2014)
