Tony Morley feels that Villa can pull off an upset against Man U, but he feels the Everton game will be far more crucial for our Top 4 fight.
Speaking on the official site, Morley thinks that Villa can capitalise on United's loss of form and really go for all 3 points to get our season back on track.
For the Everton match, a win Morley feels would put them out of the chase and leave us to focus solely on Arsenal .
Speaking on the official site our former League Championship and European Cup winner said:
'They've got two vital games. It wouldn't surprise me if Villa went to Old Trafford and got a result.
'But the big one is Everton. If they can beat Everton here the week after I think that'll put them right out of the race then.'
On our blip of late, he added:
'I was expecting a slump. If you look at it, Arsenal have had a slump, Liverpool have had a slump, Manchester United have had a slump and Chelsea have had a slump. Villa hadn't had one all year and at some point every team has a bit of a poor spell.
'But Villa have just got one thing to aim for now - qualifying for the Champions League. Arsenal have got the Champions League to go for and the FA Cup.
'There are one or two young players in the Arsenal side and let's be honest, they'd rather be the European champions and finish sixth.
'That's something they've never won so maybe one or two will take their eye off the fourth spot and maybe Villa can sneak in.'
Despite all the criticisms of late, there's a lot of sense in Morley's words. The season is certainly not over yet and we shouldn't believe it is.
We have some tough games coming up, along with games we should expect to take 3 points from. Arsenal have a difficult run in aswell and their eyes will be on the Cup so they can be expected to slip up again and when they do we just have to take our opportunity to get back in the game and make it a fight to the end.
