Predicted Manchester United lineup (4-2-3-1) vs Aston Villa, Martial and Fernandes start
Manchester United have the opportunity to close the three-point gap to Premier League leaders Liverpool when they host Aston Villa tonight.
David de Gea is expected to start in goal against the Villans. In the backline, there could be the solitary change with Luke Shaw replacing Alex Telles in the left-back role. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may continue with Eric Bailly in the central defence with Victor Lindelof struggling with a back problem.
In the midfield, Paul Pogba may drop to the bench after another sub-par display in midweek. He could be replaced with Scott McTominay. The Scotland international should partner Fred, who has been a regular choice over the past few weeks.
Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford should continue on the right and left wing respectively. Bruno Fernandes is expected to feature in the number 10 role. Anthony Martial should lead the line ahead of Edinson Cavani, who is serving a three-game ban for using a racial term in a social media post.
Predicted Manchester United lineup (4-2-3-1): David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Eric Bailly, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Scott McTominay, Fred; Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford; Anthony Martial
