Sportsmail Reporter Host commentator Auto-update 14:57 Action so far Aston Villa have the lead through Bertrand Traore's 24th minute goal Bruno Fernandes battles for possession with Aston Villa's Douglas Luiz Manchester United have had some chances without properly challenging Emi Martinez Luke Shaw has offered a lot of threat down the left-hand flank Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a lot to think about during the break 14:53 HALF-TIME: Aston Villa 1-0 Manchester United Ollie Watkins gets a booking after he dives in on Harry Maguire who is trying to clear the ball from the United area.  Moments later Watkins has an effort on goal which is saved by Henderson and the half-time whistle goes. As things stand the title is heading Manchester City's way as Aston Villa take a 1-0 lead into the break. Manchester United have had the better of the possession without really testing Emi Martinez, and it's a moment of class from Bertrand Traore that has given the hosts the lead. 14:49 43 mins: Aston Villa 1-0 Manchester United United controlling play at the moment and Watkins is left isolated up front for Villa. Mings tries a long ball to play in him but it was always difficult for the Villa forward and the United defence clears. At the other end Konsa puts his body on the line to defend a cross and he collides with Bruno Fernandes. The Villa defender looks shaken initially but gets back onto his feet and is okay to continue. 14:47 41 mins: Aston Villa 1-0 Manchester United Good chance for United! Greenwood charges at the defence and finds a yard of space to have a crack on goal and his shot is parried by Martinez and Ezri Konsa reacts brilliantly well to chest the ball and whack it away with Pogba rushing on to it behind him. United's best chance so far. 14:45 39 mins: Aston Villa 1-0 Manchester United Some nice intricate passing around the Villa area by the visitors leads to Rashford having an effort from outside the box which is comfortably saved. United were desperately trying to work themselves some space but Villa are defending very well with numbers and making it hard for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side. 14:42 37 mins: Aston Villa 1-0 Manchester United Traore got the goal and now he does well here defensively to win a free-kick. Shaw plays the ball to Pogba on the edge of the box, the Frenchman looks like he is about to have an effort on goal but Traore gets his body in the way and wins a free-kick off the United midfielder. 14:41 35 mins: Aston Villa 1-0 Manchester United Good run by Greenwood who finds Shaw who fires in a cross on his first touch but it's a gift for Martinez who easily gathers. Moments later Bruno Fernandes has a speculative effort from way to try and catch Martinez out but his effort goes well over the bar. The final ball hasn't quite been there for United so far. 14:39 33 mins: Aston Villa 1-0 Manchester United Confident football by Villa leads to Watkins drawing a foul off Scott McTominay who has his hands around him and pulls him down. The free-kick is played short to El Ghazi who tries to fire a ball into the box but United defend well and regain possession of the ball. 14:37 31 mins: Aston Villa 1-0 Manchester United El Ghazi tries to trick his way past Wan Bissaka before playing a ball into the box but Dean Henderson gathers before it can get to Ollie Watkins. 14:35 29 mins: Aston Villa 1-0 Manchester United United with the corner from Shaw but can't find a teammate and it's headed away by Konsa at the back post. The visitor's full backs are causing all sorts of problems but they find themselves behind and haven't created a real clear cut opportunity as yet.   14:29 GOAL!!! Aston Villa 1-0 Manchester United (Traore 24) Aston Villa take the lead and it's a stunning finish by Bertrand Traore. McGinn harries McTominay to win the ball and gives it to Luiz who feeds it to Traore who has his back to goal. It's brilliantly taken by Traore who spins away from Lindelof and fires into the top corner - arguably the United defender should have done better but full credit to Traore for the finish.   14:28 22 mins: Aston Villa 0-0 Manchester United United move the ball sharply and Greenwood from the edge of the area scuffs his shot but it goes into the path of Rashford but the Villa defender reacts quickest to clear. 14:24 18 mins: Aston Villa 0-0 Manchester United McGinn puts a long ball into the path of Traore on the right wing but Shaw puts it behind for a corner. Targett whips the ball into the box but Lindelof gets his head onto it to clear the danger. 14:22 16 mins: Aston Villa 0-0 Manchester United United win the ball just from the edge of their area and the break is on as Paul Pogba plays through Rashford.  Rashford cuts the ball back for Fernandes but he's under pressure from Villa players around him and puts it out for a goal-kick. Villa have started to settle down though after an unsteady start. 14:19 13 mins: Aston Villa 0-0 Manchester United First shot on goal for Villa and they win a corner. McGinn puts a ball into the box which pinballs around before Bertrand Traore's shot is deflected over for a corner. The corner is then played in but Harry Maguire jumps highest to head clear. 14:17 11 mins: Aston Villa 0-0 Manchester United Aston Villa have weathered the early storm and Matt Targett wins a corner off Aaron Wan Bissaka.  The corner though is played short and it comes to nothing for the hosts. 14:15 9 mins: Aston Villa 0-0 Manchester United Shaw again steps forward from left back and starts a move which falls to Fred on the edge but his effort is straight down the throat of Martinez. The Manchester United full-back is lively in the early going. 14:13 6 mins: Aston Villa 0-0 Manchester United Chance for United! Shaw plays a one-two with Rashford, leaving two Villa men chasing shadows. He's at an angle, smashes one goalwards, but Martinez saves well. Paul Pogba then tries a placed effort but Martinez is again alert to the threat. 14:11 5 mins: Aston Villa 0-0 Manchester United Marcus Rashford whips a ball into the box which looks like it might be heading out but Mason Greenwood does get on the end of it and puts it back into a dangerous area but no United players are there to take advantage of the situation and Villa clear. 14:09 4 mins: Aston Villa 0-0 Manchester United Mason Greenwood has a run at the Villa back-line but the hosts defend well and Anwar El Ghazi clears.  Manchester United passing it around nicely in the opening stages but no chance yet. 14:08 2 mins: Aston Villa 0-0 Manchester United John McGinn is caught by Paul Pogba in the opening minute and is already limping but he quickly shakes it off and looks okay so nothing for Aston Villa fans to be concerned about. 14:06 KICK-OFF Both sets of players take the knee and Bruno Fernandes kicks us off to get the match underway. 14:02 Manchester United lead the teams out Manchester United are the first team to make their way to the pitch in their zebra style kit led by Harry Maguire before Tyrone Mings leads Aston Villa out. 14:01 Teams are in the tunnel We're not far away from kick-off and both teams are in the tunnel 13:57 Premier League title permutations We are less than ten minutes away from kick-off. Just a reminder that Manchester City can win the Premier League title depending on the result of this game. Quite simply Manchester City need Aston Villa to win today to seal the title, otherwise they'll have to wait to see if Leicester can beat the Red Devils on Tuesday. A draw would all but seal the title as United would then need to win every game and City to lose every game with a large swing in goal difference too. 13:52 Last minute preparations for the visitors Harry Maguire will be hoping to keep a clean sheet on his 72nd consecutive league start for Manchester United Bruno Fernandes scored the winner when the sides met at Old Trafford 13:46 Manchester United favourites to win Manchester United are the favourites going into this game with the bookmakers but Aston Villa are more than capable of pulling out a surprise.

Aston Villa still have a slim hope of European qualification. They are eight points behind seventh placed Tottenham but they do have two games in hand and looked very good last week. Manchester United though are in great form, have an impressive away record and not lost in the league since a 2-1 defeat to Sheffield United at Old Trafford back in January.

Villa Park is one of the great stadiums but unfortunately there will be no fans for their visit by Manchester United today or by Everton on Thursday. Fans will be able to attend their final game of the season against Chelsea in a limited capacity.  Dean Smith's side has won more games away than at Villa Park this season, but expects home advantage to return when fans return.

Mail Online 13:28 Harry Maguire blasts 'ridiculous' schedule Harry Maguire has labelled his side's schedule this week as 'ridiculous' as he goes for a Premier League record. If Maguire lasts the full duration this afternoon he will break Gary Pallister's record for consecutive matches without missing a single minute. It would be an incredible record for the England international who has not missed a minute since joining United in the summer of 2019. With three games in five days though, it looks like unfortunately that run could come to an end this week. To read more click below Maguire blasts schedule that sees United play three times in five days The Red Devils travel to Villa Park on Sunday afternoon, before home games with Leicester on Tuesday and rivals Liverpool on Thursday. Maguire is aiming for a Premier League record. Mail Online 13:25 Villa hoping to break barren run against their opponents The hosts have a pretty poor record when it comes to games against their opponents today. The last time they beat the Red Devils was a 1-0 victory at Old Trafford in December 2009, when Gabby Agbonlahor netted the winner. You have to look back a further 14 years since Villa beat Manchester United at home in the league, when goals by Ian Taylor, Mark Draper and future United striker Dwight Yorke sealed a 3-1 victory in August 1995 with David Beckham scoring for the visitors. It's the longest unbeaten away run one side has had against another in English league history and Villa will be keen to put a stop to United's dominance against them. 13:20 Tough week ahead for Manchester United Manchester United’s postponed game with Liverpool has created what looks to be a very tricky week for the Red Devils. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side face three games in five days, starting with their trip to Villa Park this afternoon. They then face Leicester on Tuesday evening before their rearranged fixture with Liverpool takes place on Thursday night. Solskjaer has made four changes to his starting line-up today and expect plenty more in their next two games. 13:16 Last time these sides met These sides last faced off on New Year’s Day when Manchester United claimed a 2-1 victory to go joint top of the table. They took the lead when Tyrone Mings’ headed clearance rebounded off the head of Anthony Martial and found the back of the net. Villa equalised when Jack Grealish’s cross found Bertrand Traore who slotted the ball past David de Gea. Manchester United though got the winner when Bruno Fernandes scored from the spot after Douglas Luiz was judged to have fouled Paul Pogba.

This could potentially be a decisive afternoon as Manchester City will be crowned Premier League champions should Aston Villa claim victory. It is a big task for Dean Smith’s side though, as their opponents have not been beaten away from home in the league since a 2-0 loss to Liverpool on January 19 last year. The game marks the start of a difficult week for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side who face three games in five days. Villa could provide stern opposition and they are coming off an impressive 2-1 win away at Everton last week.
