Manchester United's unlikely title charge continues today as they travel to Aston Villa this afternoon.

The hosts have had major trouble scoring goals this season, but saw their five game unbeaten run ended last weekend with a 1-0 loss at Midlands rivals West Bromwich Albion.

Villa boss Paul Lambert has reverted to a 5-2-1-2 system to try and combat United's 3-4-1-2 formation, which has worked well in recent weeks for Louis van Gaal.

The Red Devils hammered rivals Liverpool 3-0 last weekend, but van Gaal has brought in Radamel Falcao up front in place of James Wilson, with Darren Fletcher coming in for Marouane Fellaini in midfield.

There's a place on the bench for Angel Di Maria, who has missed the last few games through injury, as United look to make it seven straight wins in the Premier League.
