Villa could offer a start for Lucas Digne and Philippe Coutinho in the game, however, as they look to lift the table from a frustrating 14th place.
United’s victory would have been slightly boosted by the victory but still six points from the top four of the weekend, Cristiano Ronaldo has openly called on his players to change their minds.

Manchester United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire, Telles; Fred, Matic; Greenwood, Fernandes; Ronaldo, Cavani
Aston Villa – 21/10
Drawing – 5/2
Manchester United – 6/5
Aston Villa will be keen to respond after losing to United in the FA Cup and will benefit from being at home. The arrival of Digne and Coutinho will strengthen the team and will likely be a simpler and more difficult encounter. Not for the first time this season, Ronald could just come up with a winner late. Aston Villa 1-2 Manchester United.
