Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: Aston Villa v. Manchester United Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

Aston Villa are hanging by a thread in the 2019-20 Premier League and do not depend on themselves to avoid relegation. They currently sit in 18th place with 27 points – ahead of Bournemouth solely based on their goal differential – and can't leave the red zone even if they pull the upset and secure the three points Thursday. That's not a positive scenario considering there are only a handful of games left in the schedule. As for Manchester United, the Red Devils are coming off three straight wins and have not lost in the Premier League since dropping back-to-back matches in late January. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men have gone 16 straight matches without defeat in all competitions and enter this game in good spirits. They know a win here could move them closer to a Champions League spot for the 2020-21 season.
