United had a number of injury issues before their draw with Tottenham but a similar starting XI is expected to the one that was deployed in midweek.

Harry Maguire was injured in training and probably won't start even if he recovers in time, leaving Luke Shaw to partner Victor Lindelof again in defence.

Bruno Fernandes had been pictured in a protective boot but shook those fitness worries off and should start again here.

Aston Villa team news

Villans manager Unai Emery has little reason to meddle with his starting XI, having not tasted defeat since mid-February.

That said, he remains without Philippe Coutinho, Leon Bailey - who scored the first goal in Villa's 3-1 win over United in November - Boubacar Kamara and Matty Cash.

Aston VIlla predicted lineup vs Man Utd

Aston Villa predicted lineup (4-2-3-1): Martinez; Young; Konsa, Mings, Moreno; Dendoncker, Luiz; McGinn, Buendia, Ramsey; Watkins.

Man Utd vs Aston Villa score prediction

Man Utd were well beaten by Villa in Emery's first game in charge and have a number of weak areas with injuries ruling out the likes of Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez. They looked sharp against Spurs before falling off in the second half, much to the anger of Erik ten Hag.

Villa have picked up wins on the road at Chelsea and Leicester in recent weeks and made a statement to the rest of the Premier League with their 3-0 thumping of Newcastle.

The visitors are definitely capable of leaving Old Trafford with all three points but United should bounce back from their midweek disappointment.
