Manchester United will set a new Premier League record if they win by more than three goals at Aston Villa on Thursday night.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side is in the middle of a 16-game unbeaten run in all competitions. United are in form having won 10 points from a possible 12 since the Premier League’s resumption.
Since drawing with Tottenham in June, the Red Devils have seen off Sheffield United, Brighton and Bournemouth. And should they win by three or more goals at Villa Park today, they will set a Premier League record for consecutive wins by at least three goals.
Sheffield United and Brighton were cast aside 3-0 before they beat Bournemouth 5-2. Man United are on a 20-match unbeaten streak at Villa Park.
Solskjaer, ahead of the clash warned his players to be aware of Aston Villa star, Jack Grealish’s threat when both teams clash in the Premier League on Thursday night at Villa Park.
According to Solskjaer, Grealish likes to attract players to himself and creates space for others. The Norwegian said this at his pre-match press conference on Wednesday.
Recall that Grealish was outstanding as Aston Villa played 2-2 draw against Man United in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford last December.
“I think the last game obviously caused us some problems, both Grealish off the left and [Anwar] El Ghazi off the right,” Solskjaer said.
“He scored a fantastic goal. There have been lots said and talked about him, and we need to be aware of him. Whoever is close to him, if he is off the left, in the middle or on the right. What he does is attract players to him and creates space for others.
“It is not just one player in that Villa team. There are many of them.”
Man United heads to the game after beating Bournemouth 5-2 in their previous game, while Aston Villa lost 2-0 to Premier League champions, Liverpool.
The match kick-off time is at 8:15 pm.
