Aston Villa will welcome Manchester United at Villa Park on Saturday evening as both teams look to get the better of each other in this Premier League game. The Villans suffered a 1-0 loss at the hands of the Red Devils in the EFL Cup earlier this weekend, so they will be eager to get some revenge by collecting maximum points in front of their home fans.

Aston Villa Vs Manchester United: Talking Tactics

Steven Gerrard will set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and would rely on the quickness of Ollie Watkins and the guile of Philippe Coutinho to cause a lot of problems for the opposition during the 90 minutes.

Ralf Rangnick could opt for a 4-3-1-2 formation and might instruct his players to retain possession well so that they can feed some decent balls to the feet of Bruno Fernandes, who will be Man United’s main playmaker in the final third.

Manchester United

Both Scott McTominay and Luke Shaw are suspended for this game. Rangnick will be sweating on the fitness of Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Maguire as they are both significant concerns ahead of this weekend’s contest at Villa Park.

De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire, Telles, Fred, Matic, Van de Beek, Fernandes, Cavani, Ronaldo

Key Men

Aston Villa

All eyes will be on Philippe Coutinho who is expected to play from the start for the West Midlands outfit. The defensive performance of Ezri Konsa and Tyrone Mings could go a long way in deciding the fate of this contest.

Manchester United

Bruno Fernandes needs to have a good game if the Red Devils are to come out on top in this game. Both Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire will have to figure out a way to keep the Villans at bay during the 90 minutes.
