Aston Villa vs Manchester United, EPL Matchday #15
Aston Villa Have Not Been Able to Find Their Way for Several Seasons Now
To be a contender in the English Premier League for several seasons in a row is something any English club would be proud of. It is an extremely difficult competition in which the best 20 teams compete against each other, testing their level year after year.
For Aston Villa, this test of their mettle has been difficult for some time now. Of course, it has not faced relegation, but its permanence is falling below par regularly.
To illustrate, in the 2019-20 season, the club finished #17. Then, in 2020-21 season, #11. And last season, they finished in 14th place with a cumulative 45 points from 13 wins, 6 draws, and 19 defeats. Their goal balance was also negative, and they finished the season at -2 goals.
And as always, this season is going full steam ahead, and no team wants to be left out. That is why in the Aston Villa vs Manchester United match, The Villains must go play with the intention of winning at home, scoring valuable points to distance themselves from the bottom of the table.
For Manchester United, It Has Never Been Enough Just to Stay in the Top Flight
Never one to presume it has a right to a place in English soccer’s top club competition, the heart that the Red Devils put into every game is exceptional. The impetus to fight until the end for the title, to join a competition like the Champions League, and to represent their nation on the European stage is something that drives Manchester United. Being displaced from the latter competition last season has been a hard blow to face.
As for its recent EPL track record, the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons finished with a #3 and #2 ranking, respectively. And while this meant no Premier League title, it did mean going to the European Champions competition.
But last season, United could not maintain this position. In the EPL they finished #6 from 16 wins, 10 draws, and 12 defeats, accumulating just 58 points out of 114. They also finished with a neutral goal average after scoring and conceding 57 goals.
This season they do not plan to repeat the same history, and they want to fight for the privileged positions in Europe. In Aston Villa vs Manchester United, The Red Devils will do their best to get the points from this match.
