Manchester United go into their Premier League clash with Aston Villa hoping to increase their five point lead over their top-four rivals. Louis van Gaal’s side’s momentum was interrupted by the international break, but nevertheless they will be looking to extend their four-match winning run at Old Trafford.
Here is how United may line up against Tim Sherwood’s men:
GK- David De Gea
The Spaniard has been one of the players of the season, and a key reason why United currently sit in the top four.
RB- Antonio Valencia
Valencia should continue at full-back due to a lack of convincing options available to Louis van Gaal.
CB- Phil Jones
The centre-back is perhaps lucky to be available after a crunching challenge with Adam Lallana during the victory over Liverpool, which many felt he could have been dismissed for.
CB- Marcos Rojo
With Chris Smalling doubtful after collecting an injury on international duty, the Argentinian could well be recalled, having been used as a substitute at Anfield.
LB- Daley Blind
The Dutchman has looked comfortable since his recent transition to a more defensive role.
