I use DAZN or NBCSN, but I think that's moved to another provider now.

NBCSN is no more unfortunately, coverage is the same but it is on The USA Network or Peacock now.

Opta stats
Aston Villa are winless in their last 22 home league games against Manchester United (D7 L15) since a 3-1 victory in August 1995. It's the longest winless home run one side has had against another in English Football League history.

Aston Villa are looking to win consecutive league games against Man Utd for the first time since November 1976, while they last did the league double over the Red Devils in 1954-55.

Manchester United have scored the opening goal in 33 Premier League games against Aston Villa, winning 32 and drawing one of those matches. It's the most a team has opened the scoring without losing against a side in the competition's history.

Manchester United have won 299 Premier League away games, and would be the first side to reach 300 in the competition with victory here. No side has won more Premier League games (37) or away games (17) in the competition's history than the Red Devils have against Aston Villa.

None of Aston Villa's last 16 Premier League games have ended level (W6 L10), with the Villans last having a longer run without a league draw between September 1964 and April 1965 (29 games).

Dean Smith was manager of Aston Villa for their 1-0 win earlier this season over Man Utd, while Steven Gerrard will take charge of this game. Should the Villans win, they will be the first team to complete a league double over Manchester United with a different manager in charge for each game since Bolton Wanderers in 1950-51 (Walter Rowley and Bill Ridding).

As a player, Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard ended on the winning side in 10 Premier League games against Man Utd, a joint-record along with Nicolas Anelka, John Terry and Petr Cech. However, including caretakers, only one of the last 18 managers has won their first Premier League match against the Red Devils, with Mikel Arteta winning with Arsenal in January 2020.

Mrs Beard surprisingly unimpressed by me naming the starting eleven for the 1995 game.  Man shes a lucky lady!!

I think it’s pretty important we win today. It’s not good being unlucky in defeat all the time.

One thing I normally hate about going to games against Man Utd is the atmosphere - Apart from Little's 3-1 'You'll never win anything with kids' moment, it's always been a little flat with that looming sense of foreboding - The imminent equaliser, penalty or red card.

Monday's travesty may play into our hands. The fans want blood, the officials are under such scrutiny that they may think twice before awarding them their annual penalty. I think the atmosphere could reach the levels of that Everton game first game back in the Prem. The United team could be in for a rude awakening tonight (hopefully!).

UTFV! 💪🏻
The scrutiny is in the minds of Villa fans only and they really don’t give a shit about that.

Absolutely this.

I've just realised I can get all our games on RMC Sport in in 4k UHD now that we have a fibre internet connection. No more dodgy streams for me. I hope to see Ladyboy's tears in marvelous detail as we funeral the has-been home-counties fuckers 3-0 .

Do you need a subscription?
Yes.

It's a French channel  I've signed up for a year, €19 per month. Their advertising says they show every PL game. However what I didn't realise is that three or four games are shown later on at 9pm. Doh! Still, the quality is amazing and I'm fed up with shite pixelly streams with shite sound and commentary in Mandinka dialect.

I'm alright today as it's on live but for other games I'm going to have to switch off my phone until it's shown.
