A tireless worker who will present another goal threat for the United defence. Quick, evasive and one of the most natural finishers in the Villa side, the young Austrian will likely be played out wide, which will allow him to cut inside and feed off Benteke. He has scored against United before, and won’t waste an opportunity to do it again.
Talk to any Villa fan and they will tell you just how frustrating the Frenchman can be. Having single-handedly saved Wigan Athletic for so long, he has been unable to replicate that kind of form for Villa on a regular basis. However, he remains one of Villa’s most unpredictable players when in possession of the ball. So unpredictable that not even he seems to know what he’ll do next, but all it takes is one stroke of luck and he’ll get it all right.
Grealish is one of the most exciting prospects to emerge from Villa’s productive youth academy in years. Blessed with the ability to ghost past players like they’re not there, the Irish under-21 international could prove to be a nightmare for Michael Carrick, should United play him at the back again. Having spent last season on loan with Notts County last term he’s slowly been working his way into Paul Lambert’s plans this season.
