Manchester United face a tough task as they search for only a second Premier League win in their last six games when they host flying Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Boxing Day.

The Red Devils failed to score for the fourth match in a row on Saturday as West Ham scored twice in the second half to overtake Erik ten Hag's side in the table.

Villa couldn't manage the win against Sheffield United on Friday night that would have taken them to the top of the standings at Christmas, but know victory here would deal another large blow to United's Champions League qualification hopes.

Manchester United vs Aston Villa score prediction

Now down in eighth, Man Utd simply cannot shake off their persistent issues to build up a consistent run of form to take them up the table.

Aston Villa have showed a combined goal threat and nous in defence, though there would have been disappointment with their draw last time out as they failed to claim top spot in the Premier League table.

The Villans' industrious style of play could make this Boxing Day encounter a real nightmare for a goal-shy Man Utd, who have lost four league games at Old Trafford already this season.

Prediction: Manchester United 0-2 Aston Villa
