Aston Villa v Man Utd Betting: Rooney can fire Reds to another victory

Saturday evening's live Premier League offering comes from Villa Park as Aston Villa take on Manchester United. Villa have a quite woeful record in this fixture and they have it all to do after a slow start to the season, with United odds on favourites as they bid to maintain their early season push for the title.

United are currently priced 8/13 in the match betting with Ladbrokes, who go 5/1 for the Villa win and 3/1 for the draw. United look worthy favourites at this stage as they are unbeaten in their last 16 visits to Villa Park and despite not setting the world alight with their performances this season they are still right in the mix at the top of the table.

Sir Alex Ferguson's side have come from behind to win 12 points in the top-flight this season and they were at it again on Wednesday night as they came from behind to beat Braga 3-1 in the Champions League which ensured they qualified for the knockout stages. Ferguson brought Robin van Persie off the bench and he duly scored the equaliser, with Ladbrokes making the Dutchman the 3/1 favourite to score first this weekend.

United's penchant for rescuing matches from losing positions makes the 7/2 on offer for the Reds to come from behind and win or draw on Saturday look very tempting indeed, particularly when you consider that Villa have scored first in three of the last five matches between these two at Villa Park but they have failed to win any of them.

Ferguson is likely to start Rio Ferdinand after he came off the bench against Braga and he will need to shore up a leaky defence, with nine of United's last 10 outings involving both teams scoring. United to win and both teams to score on Saturday can be backed at 2/1 and that could be worth a look as Villa are at least a bit more attack-minded under Paul Lambert nowadays.

Christian Benteke has been in fine form with four goals in seven games and he is 8/1 to score first. The form of the Belgian has ensured Villa have barely noticed the absence of Darren Bent, who is again doubtful with a foot injury. A 1-0 win over Sunderland was a welcome three points last Saturday but they remain down in 17th place in the table and they have games against Man City and Arsenal to come this month.

It doesn't bode well that they have won just one of the last 33 Villa v Man Utd matches in the Premier League and Wayne Rooney in particular will be looking forward to this match. Rooney has scored four in his last three against the Midlands side and in the four matches he has scored against them overall he has gone on to score a brace, with Coral going 7/1 he scores two or more.
