How to watch Man United vs Aston Villa: The Carabao Cup 3rd round concludes tonight as United take on Villa following a week of Premier League casualties in the EFL Cup

Manchester United vs Aston Villa caps off an intriguing week in the EFL Cup, with the likes of Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea, Everton, and West Ham among the Premier League teams to fall at the first hurdle.

Another top-flight team will fall tonight as Villa travel to Old Trafford to face a Man United side that has shown signs of growth and stability under new boss Erik ten Hag in his first season at the helm.

Aston Villa have also enjoyed an uptick in fortunes in recent weeks, following the sacking of Steven Gerrard as first team manager, following a listless spell in charge for the former Liverpool and England midfielder.

In fact, these two sides met in the Premier League at the weekend, with Villa surging to a 3-1 win over United in new boss Unai Emery’s first game. Villa fans will be hoping for more of the same tonight in the EFL Cup, but will have to do it on the road.
