Where to watch

Kick-off is at 3pm BST. Catch the highlights of the game on BBC Match of the Day on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10.25pm BST.


United progressed to the semi-final of the FA Cup after their 2-1 victory over West Ham United in the replay at Upton Park. It was Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini's goal that helped the Red Devils make it to the last four of the competition.

Louis van Gaal's side will face Everton at Wembley and it is their best shot of winning silverware this term. In the last league tie, United suffered a 3-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, which has been seen as a severe blow to their chances of finishing in the top four.

United are fifth on the league table with 53 points after 32 matches, four points behind fourth-placed Manchester City. The latter take on Chelsea on Saturday and prior to their kick-off, the Old Trafford club will have the chance to reduce the gap to a point if they win against Villa.

Meanwhile, Villa have been without a win in their last eight matches and they continue to struggle this term. In those fixtures, they have managed to score only three goals and went without scoring in the remaining five matches.
