Manchester United could break an incredible scoring record against Aston Villa on Thursday

Manchester United are looking to become the first team in Premier League history to win four consecutive matches by a margin of 3+ goals when we face Aston Villa on Thursday.

Manchester United began the streak with a 3-0 win over Sheffield United two weeks ago thanks to a hat-trick from Anthony Martial, while Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes netted in a 3-0 away win at Brighton last week.

The Red Devils’ 5-2 win over Bournemouth at the weekend was another win by such a margin and another attacking display against Aston Villa on Thursday will earn United a place in the record books.
