Manchester United will clash heads with Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Thursday evening, hoping to pick up a positive result on their home turf. The Villans recorded a surprising 3-1 victory over the Red Devils on Sunday.
Erik Ten Hag will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game as Anthony Martial looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven.
4-3-3 Predicted Manchester United Lineup Vs Aston Villa
David de Gea is expected to start between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Spanish shot-stopper would look to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Thursday.
Skipper Harry Maguire is expected to start at the heart of United’s backline, with Lisandro Martinez slotting into the right-centre back position. Diogo Dalot should start at the right-back position, whereas Tyrell Malacia will fill in on the other flank as the left-back.
Scott McTominay is expected to start in the defensive midfield position, whereas Bruno Fernandes will slot in as the attacking midfielder.
Christian Eriksen remains a sure-fire starter for Manchester United this week, and it’ll be an understatement to say The Red Devils will be highly dependent on the Danish international’s creative work if they wish to pick up a win on Thursday.
Fred will have to settle for a place on the bench, but he could be brought on in the second half of the contest if needed.
Alejandro Garnacho and Anthony Elanga will take up the wide positions, causing menace for Unai Emery’s men down the right and left-wing, respectively.
Cristiano Ronaldo could be brought off the bench as an impact substitute in the second forty-five minutes of the match.
