The Red Devils beat West Ham last weekend to stay level on points with Chelsea and Liverpool at the top of the table. Aston Villa meanwhile kick-started their season with an impressive 3-0 win at home to Everton to move into the top 10.

U.S. TV channel Online stream N/A Peacock Why is Man Utd vs Aston Villa not on UK TV?
Manchester United’s match with Aston Villa will not be live on TV in the UK despite kick-off being moved to the Saturday lunchtime slot usually reserved for live matches.
The match was moved on safety advice because of a concert that is taking place later on Saturday at the nearby Old Trafford Cricket Ground.
The Trafford Council Safety Advisory Group, police and transport chiefs requested the game be moved to avoid overcrowding on roads, public transport and streets in and around both stadiums.
Chelsea’s game against Manchester City will also kick off at 12:30pm as it has already been picked for live TV coverage.
