Manchester United will face Aston Villa at their home stadium and will look to build on their strong start to the 2021-22 Premier League season. In the Premier League table, the Red Devils are standing third with similar points as of leaders Chelsea while Villa are tenth, with seven points from their first five games of the season. Here is our expert guess on Manchester United vs Aston Villa football prediction, team news, and lineup for the Premier League match of the season.
Expect the same starting lineup as last weekend as Manchester United’s fringe players failed to impress against West Ham in midweek.
Alex Telles, Dean Henderson, and Phil Jones will be absent for Saturday’s game although they have returned to the home side.
Edinson Cavani is expected to miss out for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side once more.
Axel Tuanzebe is ruled to play a match against his parent club, so Dean Smith must decide whether to stick with a back three or go back to a four-man defense.
Smith may opt for a back three with Kortney Hause replacing Tuanzebe With Leon Bailey out until next month and Emiliano Buendia still finding his stride.
John McGinn has been cleared to play despite suffering a head injury last weekend as Morgan Sanson’s injury woes continued in midweek.
With Matt Targett doubtful, former Manchester United winger Ashley Young could face his former club.
Manchester United vs Aston Villa Prediction
This season Manchester United showcased a poor game but they are joint top of the table heading into the weekend’s action.
After thrashing Everton 3-0 in the Premier League the previous weekend Aston Villa were unfortunate to lose on penalties to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup in midweek.
Against Aston Villa, United have a fantastic home record but Dean Smith’s side has a good chance of a result on Saturday given the two teams’ recent performances.
Villa’s attacking quality means they’ll fancy their chances of scoring at Old Trafford, but we can’t ignore the team’s recent struggles against Man United in the Premier League. The Red Devils will be determined to avenge Wednesday’s League Cup defeat to West Ham, and we are backing the home team to take all three points here.
Manchester United possible starting lineup: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, McTominay; Greenwood, Fernandes, Pogba; Ronaldo
Aston Villa possible starting lineup: Martinez; Mings, Hause, Konsa; Cash, Luiz, Nakamba, McGinn, Young; Ings, Watkins
