Manchester United and Aston Villa were knocked out of the Carabao Cup in the midweek and now the two teams will collide in the Premier League in the afternoon today.
The Red Devils needed a late goal to win their last PL game vs the Hammers, on the other hand, the Villa Park outfit absolutely dominated and defeated Everton 3-0 in their last league fixture.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must be hoping to return to winning ways and it is highly likely that stars will return to face Dean Smith’s team.
In the goal, in form David De Gea should replace Dean Henderson and in front of the Spaniard, the likes of Varane and captain Maguire would return to play in the central defense. The likes of Shaw and Wan-Bissaka could start in the fullback positions.
In the midfield, record signing Paul Pogba would likely return to partner veteran play breaker, Nemanja Matic, who was one of the better players in the League Cup game vs West Ham.
As far as the attack is concerned, Ronaldo must play as the lone center forward up front and behind him, Bruno Fernandes should play in the CAM role.
Mason Greenwood would return to likely start on the right flank. With Sancho out of form, Lingard should get the nod to start his frist PL game of the season.
Here is Man Utd’s strongest possible 4-2-3-1 XI vs Villa:
