Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer feels his side are ready for what will be a “difficult” test against Aston Villa on Sunday (Match betting – Aston Villa 10/3, draw 11/4, Man Utd 5/6).
United, who are still looking to secure Champions League football for next season, go into the game at Villa Park after booking their place in the Europa League final in midweek.
Solskjaer has been impressed by what Villa have achieved in the Premier League this season, and knows his side will be in for a tough game against Dean Smith’s men.
“Difficult, they’ve had an unbelievable… not unbelievable because nothing surprises you, but I know that Dean Smith and John Terry we met them in pre-season and you saw the quality and organisation was different and they’ve had a very good season,” Solskjaer told the official club website.
“They beat Everton last week, so we know it’s going to be hard, but we’re looking forward to it. We’ve had some very good results down there, both against Villa and other teams.”
Sunday also sees West Ham host Everton at the London Stadium, as the Hammers look to keep their own hopes alive for Champions League football (Match betting – West Ham 23/20, draw 5/2, Everton 12/5).
West Ham skipper Declan Rice faces a race against time to be fit for the encounter against the Toffees after recovering from a knee injury.
As for Everton, midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure is in contention to play for the first time since he suffered a fractured foot on March 4.
While it’s Wolves against Brighton to start the day, Sunday’s action is concluded when Arsenal host West Brom in north London (Match betting – Arsenal 9/20, draw 7/2, West Brom 6/1).
The Gunners crashed out of the Europa League in the semi-finals against Villarreal in midweek, and now face the prospect of missing out on European football for next season.
There’s mixed injury news for Arsenal, with Scotland international Kieran Tierney set to make his first league appearance for five weeks.
However, Granit Xhaka and David Luiz are both doubts for the Gunners, against a West Brom side that are 10 points from safety with four games remaining.
