Speaking to Bet Victor, former Premier League manager and pundit Harry Redknapp backed Villa to get the win.

“What a game this should be,” he said.

“I was shocked to see Aston Villa lose in the FA Cup during the week, they’re normally so strong at home. That being said, they were superb at Sheffield United last week and could have scored seven or eight!

“Manchester United have turned a corner and are beginning to salvage this season. I’ve got to say, I’m happy for the boy Rasmus Hojlund to get amongst the goals in recent weeks. Some of the stick he was getting earlier in the season was ridiculous.

“Having said that, I’m going with Villa; I just can’t see them losing two home games on the bounce.”

It is rarely dull at Villa Park, with the hosts last failing to score on home soil in any competition in October 2022.

United have the pace to exploit Villa’s high line, with Garnacho and Rashford likely to get plenty of chances in behind, and it could turn into a high-scoring shootout.

Draw, 2-2.
