Oh my good Lord Paul McGrath… Lawro has tipped Villa to draw at Old Trafford!?

The bbc pundit says Man Utd 1-1 Aston Villa adding on the official site: ‘Manchester United have lots of injuries in defence, but they also have lots of good footballers – and good footballers are able to play in most positions. People should not be surprised that they have managed to cope with people in makeshift positions so far.’

‘United are likely to have Wayne Rooney back in their side on Saturday – while Nemanja Vidic and Dimitar Berbatov could also feature. Even so, Villa are quite buoyant at the moment and will play on the counter attack at Old Trafford with their wide men pushing on.’

BBC match preview:

Mystic Mug says 1-0 to the Villa in the 8th minute of injury time in off the backside of Sir Alex Chewalots stop watch.
