Manchester United have got the options to succeed at Aston Villa

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer pits his wits against Dean Smith.

Manchester United look set to narrow the gap on Premier League frontrunners Manchester City by taking all three points at Aston Villa on Sunday.

The Red Devils have found form at the business end of the season, and look to have the strength in depth to see off Dean Smith’s Villa.

Solskjaer Requires a Juggling Act

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a number of spinning plates to deal with, as he looks to get his side through a hectic schedule.

The Red Devils have three league games in five days, as they travel to Villa Park before hosting Leicester City and Liverpool, having made sure of a place in the Europa League final on Thursday evening.

Solskjaer has admitted it will be “impossible” to field his strongest side in all three of the games, but United should still have the strength in depth to get the job done at Villa Park.

United have an impressive record against the West Midlands outfit, having gone unbeaten in their last 17 games.

The visitors, who have no fresh injuries going into the encounter on Sunday, are 42/20 to win and both teams to score.

Hammers to Keep Champions League Dream Alive

Not many would have predicted West Ham to be in the hunt for a top-four finish this season, but David Moyes has the Hammers challenging as they prepare to host Everton.

The Irons secured a 1-0 win over the Toffees earlier this season at Goodison Park, and it might be another cagey affair at the London Stadium.

The Hammers will be hoping skipper Declan Rice recovers from his knee injury in time to face the Merseysiders, who themselves will have to do without injured Colombia international James Rodriguez.

With six goals in their last eight games, Everton have not found it easy finding the back of the net in recent weeks.

Another West Ham victory to nil is available at 12/5 in the capital.

Gunners to Send Baggies Down

It has been a tough week for Arsenal after falling short on reaching the Europa League final, but they can get back to winning ways on Sunday against West Brom.

The Gunners welcomed back Kieran Tierney against Villarreal and the Scot looks set to feature in his first league match in five weeks.

There are some injuries issues for manager Mikel Arteta to deal with, as midfielder Granit Xhaka and defender David Luiz are both nursing knocks.

With 10 points between themselves and safety, West Brom are staring down the barrel of relegation back down to the Championship and Sunday could be the day they finally get confirmed for the drop.

The Gunners secured a 4-0 win over the Baggies back in January and there’s 7/4 on offer for there to be over 3.5 goals at the Emirates.
