Manchester United will welcome Aston Villa at Old Trafford this weekend as both sides look to go all out in search of the three points in the Premier League. The Red Devils were held to a 2-2 draw at home versus Tottenham Hotspur recently. In contrast, the Villans managed to secure a 1-0 victory over Fulham earlier this week.
Manchester United Vs Aston Villa: Talking Tactics
Erik ten Haag will probably opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to ask his players to move the ball well so that they can engineer enough chances to win this Premier League contest.
Unai Emery will set his men up in a 4-4-2 formation and might instruct them to keep a good shape at the back and cause some headaches for the opposition defenders on the counter.
Both Scott McTominay and Harry Maguire are major doubts for this clash against the Villans. However, Alejandro Garnacho, Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane will all be sidelined for this game due to injuries.
Manchester United Predicted XI
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Shaw, Dalot; Casemiro, Eriksen, Fernandes; Antony, Rashford, Sancho
Matty Cash (calf) and Philippe Coutinho (thigh) will miss this game because of injuries. Both Boubacar Kamara and Leon Bailey will join them on the treatment table as they are unavailable this weekend.
Aston Villa Predicted XI
Martinez; Young, Konsa, Mings, Alex Moreno; Dendoncker, Douglas Luiz, McGinn, Buendia, Ramsey; Watkins
Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho will both need to put their pace to good use if Man United want to earn a convincing win this Sunday.
The defensive performance of Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelof could go a long way in determining the fate of this Premier League contest at the Theatre of Dreams.
Ollie Watkins will once again be Aston Villa’s main weapon up top. Both Leander Dendoncker and Douglas Luiz have to find a way to anchor the midfield well for the West Midlands club this weekend.
