Manchester United will face off against Aston Villa at Old Trafford this Sunday as they try to secure a victory this time around. The Red Devils were held to a 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur in their last league outing. Hence, they will be eager to get back the momentum this weekend.
Erik ten Hag will set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and could make one change to his first XI for this game. Marcel Sabitzer will get a chance to impress from the start as Christian Eriksen drops to the bench.
4-2-3-1 Manchester United Predicted XI Vs Aston Villa
David de Gea will function in between the sticks for Man United after conceding two goals in his last outing against Spurs. Victor Lindelof will continue to play alongside Luke Shaw at the heart of ten Hag’s defence as they look to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.
Diogo Dalot will fill in as the left-back, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka hopes to catch the eye on the other flank as the right-back. They will be allowed to express themselves in the Villa half to create some decent chances from the wide areas.
Tyrell Malacia will be available for selection on the bench as he offers cover for the left-back position.
Marcel Sabitzer and Casemiro will operate as the holding midfielders as they focus on winning possession for the Red Devils at the centre of the park.
The talented trio of Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Antony will function just ahead of them as part of the Man United attack. All three of them need to be at the top of their game if Man United are to secure a convincing win in this home encounter.
Fred and Anthony Elanga will have to be content with a spot on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the second half if ten Hag decides to call upon their services.
Marcus Rashford will lead the line for the Mancunian giants in the final third. The English sensation needs a goal to boost his confidence, so this game versus the VIllans would be a good opportunity to prove his worth in the final third.
Anthony Martial will be available for selection on the bench as he waits for his chance to impact in the latter stages if required.
