Aston Villa have won only once in 30 games against Manchester United – their 1-0 triumph at Old Trafford in December 2009.
In league games only, United have lost just one of their last 32 meetings with Villa (W22, D9, L1).
The 1-0 defeat at Wigan was only the second time the Red Devils have failed to score in 49 league and cup games this season. The other occasion was the 3-0 loss at Newcastle on 4 January.
If the Red Devils score on Sunday they will break the Premier League record for netting in consecutive home matches. They have scored in each of their last 46 top-flight games at Old Trafford, and share the record Arsenal set from 2001-03.
The last visiting Premier League team to keep a clean sheet at Old Trafford was Aston Villa in their 1-0 win in 2009.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s side have won all six of their league games at Old Trafford in 2012. The last time they dropped points on home turf was the 2-1 defeat to Blackburn on New Year’s Eve.
Villa have lost just four away league games this term – only Manchester United (two) have a better record.
However, they have also recorded the most draws on their travels (nine), and have won just three times; going into the weekend, only Blackburn and Wolves have recorded fewer away victories (two each).
Three of the last four league goals Villa have conceded have been headers.
Alex McLeish’s side have won just two of their last 13 Premier League games.
