Manchester United make the trip to Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon aiming to close the gap between themselves and Unai Emery's side in fifth place.
Erik ten Hag's men currently sit sixth in the table, nine points adrift off the Champions League qualification places but a win at Villa Park would see that difference reduced to five. United come into the game with some momentum under their belt, having won their last three in all competitions.
It has been an underwhelming season for the Old Trafford faithful, who would have expected better from their side when it comes to league form. The January transfer window came and went without any new signings arriving, meaning Ten Hag will have to get a tune out of what he's already got between now and May.
In contrast, Villa have enjoyed a stellar campaign so far, exceeding the expectations of just about everyone. It is Tottenham who currently occupy the much-coveted fourth spot, but a win for Emery's men would see them leapfrog Spurs into the top four.
The two teams will face off at Villa Park at 4:30pm on Sunday, February 11. Last time the two teams met at Old Trafford, it was United who came away with all three points.
It was a thrilling encounter, with Villa racing into a two-goal lead before a spirited second-half comeback saw United turn the game on its head and win 3-2. Rasmus Hojlund netted his first ever league goal for the club more than four months after his arrival from Atalanta.
In the Premier League-era, these two teams have gone head-to-head on 57 occasions. In that spell, United have been the dominant force with 39 victories. As for Villa, they have only managed five wins in that time, with 13 draws.
