Whilst United have great records against a number of teams, it is rare to see a team that finishes in the top half of the table suffer so badly when playing us. Aston Villa’s record against us is absolutely ridiculously bad.
It’s funny to think that the last time they got a result against us in the league, we were told we weren’t going to win anything…

Can this continue at the weekend?
