Man United could go first on the league table, but it would take a mission impossible score

Manchester United will take on Aston Villa on New year’s day, as they seek to keep up the pace with table toppers, Liverpool.

The Reds currently enjoy a three point gap, but things can be different by the end of today.

If Man United win the tie against the Villans, they could see themselves go first on the league table. But for this to happen, we’ll have to score up to nine goals against Villa.

United will also have to pray our direct rivals do not win their own games for this to actually happen.

However, if United lose the game, we could slip all the way down to number 4, which would be a blow to our title hopes.
