Manchester United, under fire after a 0-1 loss to Wolves in the league, shift their focus on Aston Villa in the third round of the FA Cup. A lot has been written in the media about the lack of unity in the squad and Ralf Rangnick’s inability to impress his stars with the tactics. While the players have come out to rubbish these rumours, another defeat at Old Trafford has the potential to take United’s torrid season to another low. The FA Cup represents an ideal opportunity for Manchester United to win some silverware and a strong team is expected to take field at Old Trafford. Opposition Aston Villa have looked solid under Steven Gerrard and they will be eager to get another win over Manchester United this campaign.

Victor Lindelof has trained with the first team which is a massive boost for the home team. He could pair with Raphael Varane in the backline. Scott McTominay was poor against Wolves but is set to start once again in midfield, this time alongside Fred. Marcus Rashford has not started the last few games and could be used for his pace on the counter. Bruno Fernandes needs to up his game if Manchester United are to progress from this tough encounter.
Former Manchester United skipper Ashley Young is a doubt for this game with a toe injury while Marvelous Nakamba is ruled out. Phillipe Coutinho is major signing for Aston Villa but has not had proper training at his new club to start a game of this magnitude. Douglas Luiz is the anchor man in midfield and United could once again fall short in this department.
