Manchester United host Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Saturday as the Red Devils look to end their season on a high note.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 12:45pm GMT. Live coverage will be available on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 1 HD.


The game at Old Trafford is set to be overshadowed by a section of disgruntled fans who are planning to stage a massive protest against David Moyes after the Scotsman failed to deliver the desired results on his first season at United.

Back-to--back defeats against Liverpool and Manchester City in the past couple of weeks have further infuriated fans who have reportedly booked a flight to hover over Old Trafford with a message saying "Wrong One - Moyes Out", ridiculing his inclusion in the United setup as the Chosen One, by Sir Alex Ferguson.

Moyes will be looking for his team to gain some confidence in spite of the agitation against him, with the Red Devils set to face Bayern Munich at home in the quarter finals of the Champions League midweek.

With a top four place out of reach, United's only chance to qualify for next year's Champions League is to win the competition, something which given their form will be an uphill task for the defending English Champions.

Meanwhile, Paul lambert will be asking his side to put up the same performance against United as they did against Chelsea in a 1-0 win at Villa Park. The Villans are more or less assured of a place in the Premier League next season and will be trying their best to finish in the top half of the table. However, they have to put in a markedly better performance this time around after a horrendous display against Stoke, being beaten 4-1.

What the Managers Say

David Moyes: "We didn't play well in midweek and it was disappointing but going into the game, we'd played well against Olympiacos and against West Ham. So going into the game against Aston Villa I'd like to get more of the West Ham performance rather than the midweek one. The players know exactly what it is to play for Manchester United - they know the standards they have to set. But they're hurting as well as me and are desperate to put it right. And hopefully when we get to the game against Villa, they can show that."

Paul Lambert: "We have to use that to try and keep the crowd quiet. When you have a big following with expectancy levels and you don't perform it can happen. Manchester United when they lose any game – never mind possibly two in a row – it is a major disaster. Every club has down time at some point. I think what has happened to United is they lost a really successful boss. Somebody had to do the job. But there is a generation of their fans who haven't been used to losing."
