Aston Villa vs Manchester United
Competition: Premier League
Match date: 14 August 2015
Kick Off Time: 19:45 BST
Venue: Villa Park (Birmingham, England)

Aston Villa team triumphed 1-0 on the opening day away to promoted side Bournemouth thanks to a debut goal from Rudy Gestede in the second half. Villa's pre-season results would also have pleased the club's supporters, with just one defeat from six matches.
Tim Sherwood is  unlikely to make many changes. Rudy Gestede should start for the first time. Jores Okore could miss out for Villa but Jack Grealish has a chance of being fit. Gary Gardner and Jose Angel Crespo could be back in contention while Carlos Sanchez is also pushing for a return and could take the place of Ashley Westwood.
Louis van Gaal's men began the season with an unconvincing 1-0 win at home agaist Spurs on Saturday thanks to Kyle Walker’s own goal in the first-half. They didn’t create an awful lot and were hanging on at the end with goalkeeper Sergio Romero making some vital saves.
Van Gaal could opt for an unchanged team. Marouane Fellaini is still suspended and Phil Jones out and Marcos Rojo still lacking fitness. Bastian Schweinsteiger will hope to come into contention but may have to make do with a place on the bench once again. Daley Blind is likely to continue in central defence alongside Chris Smalling while Romero is expected to keep out David de Gea following an impressive debut last time out.
Manchester United have scored at least 3 goals in 6 of their last 7 matches against  Aston Villa in all competitions. Aston Villa have won just one of their last 39 EPL games against Man United losing an incredible 28 times in the process. Anyway, they did hold Manchester United to a 1-1 draw at Villa Park last term. The Red Devils haven't won their first two matches of a season since beginning 2011-12 with five straight victories
