Watch all the action as Aston Villa host Manchester United in the Premier League this afternoon.

United are on the verge of their first piece of silverware under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after beating Roma in the Europa League semi-finals earlier this week. They could well turn their squad around today, however, due to an awkward stack of matches after their game against Liverpool was postponed last weekend when supporters stormed the pitch at Old Trafford. Solskjaer can afford such luxury with United’s top-four spot almost assured, with a four-point, two-game advantage in hand over Leicester, who currently sit in fourth place.

Meanwhile, Aston Villa’s hopes of securing European football have sadly faded after such a great start to the season. Dean Smith’s side slipped to the bottom half of the table after a series of disappointing results, however, a 2-1 win over Everton last time around will have boosted morale as they look to end the campaign on a high. They remain, however, without their captain and talisman Jack Grealish, who has yet to fully recover from a costly shin injury he sustained in February. Follow all the live action below:
