Aston Villa vs Manchester United live stream and match preview
Looking for an Aston Villa vs Manchester United live stream? We’ve got you covered with our handy guide.
A new era is upon Aston Villa, with Unai Emery set to take charge of his first game as manager since joining the club and replacing Steven Gerrard. Emery joined Villarreal and found Villa languishing just above the drop zone in 16th.
Gerrard was sacked just over two weeks ago after a 3-0 loss to Fulham. Aaron Danks took over as temporary manager for two games thereafter, beating Brentford at home 4-0 in what looked like an improvement in results. However, they were brought down to earth with a hammer blow at the hands of Newcastle, losing 4-0 in the North East.
Of course, Emery won’t have had much time to work on his system with the team, but if he can get the most out of Philippe Coutinho, Emi Buendia and forward duo Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings, Villa should be in safe hands for the rest of the season. They will, however, face top-flight Manchester United, unbeaten in their last nine games in all competitions.
Man United have looked like a badass since losing 6-3 at Manchester City, winning seven and drawing twice since then. However, despite beating Real Sociedad in the Europa League on Thursday night, it wasn’t enough for them to top the group, meaning they will face another two-man affair against a side from the Champions League to progress in Europe.
Either way, Erik ten Hag provided the Red Devils with some exciting football, with Marcus Rashford notably in top form. There is, of course, the drama that Cristiano Ronaldo always brings, but Manchester United certainly looked much better without the Portuguese starting games.
Lisandro Martinez is also part of the reason Manchester United have not conceded a goal in open play since facing Everton at Goodison Park in early October – the only goal they have seen in their own net since is a Jorginho’s penalty against Chelsea.
They will miss Bruno Fernandes for this clash, having picked up his fifth booking of the season last weekend against West Ham. Raphael Varane is still missing due to injury, while Anthony Martial is fighting for full fitness.
Villa, meanwhile, are without a summer signing Boubacar Kamara and Diego Carlos.

Kick off and chain
Kick-off is at 14:00 BST on Sunday, November 6, but is not broadcast live in the UK. See below for international streaming options.
If you’re out of the country for a series of Premier League fixtures, your domestic on-demand services unfortunately won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are thanks to your IP address (boo!). You won’t be able to watch it, which isn’t ideal if you’ve paid for a subscription and still want to follow the action without resorting to the illegal streams you’ve found on Reddit.
But help is at hand. To get around this, all you need to do is get a virtual private network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, which means the service can’t determine where you are and won’t automatically block the service you paid for. All information in between is fully encrypted – and that’s a result.
