Aston Villa will welcome Manchester United at Villa Park this Sunday as both sides try to get the better of each other in the Premier League. The Villans suffered a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Newcastle United recently. In contrast, the Red Devils managed to secure 1-0 victory away at Real Sociedad which will give them a lot of momentum ahead of this game.
Aston Villa Vs Manchester United: Talking Tactics
Unai Emery will set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to ask his players to keep a good shape at the back and cause some headaches for the opposition defenders on the counter.
Erik ten Hag will probably opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and could instruct his men to create enough decent opportunities in the final third to win this league contest on the road.
Boubacar Kamara, Ludwig Augustinsson and Diego Carlos will be sidelined for this game due to injuries. Emiliano Martinez is a slight concern as well but should be ready in time for this match.
Aston Villa Predicted XI
E Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Digne; Dendoncker, Luiz, McGinn; Watkins, Ings, Bailey
Anthony Martial, Jadon Sancho and Antony are all major concerns ahead of this clash at Villa Park. Furthermore, Bruno Fernandes will miss this game due to suspension.
Manchester United Predicted XI
De Gea; Dalot, Lindelof, L Martinez, Shaw; Fred, Casemiro, Eriksen; Antony, Ronaldo, Rashford
Both Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for the Villans in the final third. The defensive duo of Ezri Konsa and Tyrone Mings need to keep a solid defensive shape at the back if they want to keep the Man United attackers frustrated during the 90 minutes.
Fred and Casemiro will be given the responsibility to anchor the midfield well for Man United so that they can push on in search of the win.
Marcus Rashford has to figure out a way to put his pace to good use out on the wide areas.
