For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's rejuvenated Reds, Thursday is another cup final.

Because Manchester United came back after the break still trailing the top four, each game has been like that: a final that needs to be won.

Today, the Red Devils, who are now unbeaten in 16 games across all competitions dating back to January 22, have to face another relegation-threatened side in Aston Villa. The Villains played well Sunday in a 2-0 loss to Liverpool, but now have to face a United side that is scoring goals for fun; the Red Devils have outscored four opponents 15-4 since the restart.

This match was a 2-2 draw back on December 1, but I would expect United to shore it up a little better defensively, while finding the net more than the Villains.
