Aston Villa v United: The key information

Monday 06 July 2020 11:00

Manchester United are back on the road this Thursday, as we take on Aston Villa at Villa Park.

The West Midlands venue is traditionally a happy hunting ground for the Reds - aside from countless cup semi-final victories, we haven't lost to the Villans there in the league since 1995, a run of 20 consecutive visits without defeat.

Dean Smith's side are currently embroiled in a relegation battle and, with time running out, they could do with - at the very least - a repeat of the 2-2 draw they gleaned from the reverse fixture at Old Trafford in December.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Thursday's match, including where it will be televised...
