Aston Villa vs Man Utd team news

Aston Villa

Aston Villa put in a five-star performance away at struggling Sheffield United last weekend. The visitors went in at the break four goals up thanks to efforts from John McGinn, Ollie Watkins, Leon Bailey and Yuri Tielemans. Alex Moreno added a fifth goal early in the second half but Villa seemed to take their foot off the accelerator from that point on and the scoreline ended 5-0.

Emiliano Buendia, Tyrone Mings, Jhon Duran, Ezri Konsa and Lucas Digne make up the injury concerns for Unai Emery's side ahead of the Man Utd clash.

Predicted Lineup: Martínez (GK), Lenglet, Moreno, Carlos, Konsa, McGinn, Tielemans, Bailey, Kamara, Ramsey & Watkins

Man Utd

Erik ten Hag's side put in one of their most convincing display of the season at home to West Ham last time out. Ramus Hojlund opened the scoring after twenty-three minutes after good work from Casemiro and in the second forty-five, Alejandro Garnacho helped himself to a brace to wrap up a comfortable 3-0 victory.

Lisandro Martinez, Anthony Martial, Tyrell Malacia, Mason Mount and Aaron Wan-Bissaka could all miss the trip to the Midlands through injury.

Predicted Lineup: Onana (GK), Maguire, Shaw, Dalot, Varane, Casemiro, Fernandes, Mainoo, Rashford, Garnacho & Højlund

Player to Watch: Ramus Hojland

Manchester United striker Ramus Hojland seems to have finally found his feet in the Premier League following some impressive performances in recent weeks.

The 21-year-old has scored four goals in eighteen league games for United but heads into the Villa game in great form with five goals in his last six appearances in all competitions, which includes a goal against Aston Villa in the pair's reverse fixture.

Hojland's talent was never in doubt but there were question marks over his ability to adapt to the Premier League but the Dane has certainly started to defy the critics of late.
