Villa v Man United team news

Paul Pogba is a longer term absentee and there has been no word on when Anthony Martial will be back.

United will hope to have Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, Harry Maguire and Phil Jones back fit after they all missed Monday’s game.

Scott McTominay and Luke Shaw are suspended for this one, while the home side will be without John McGinn for the same reason.

Villa v United: Our prediction

Villa ran United close on Monday and had plenty of chances to score and force extra time at the very least.

They will take confidence from that but if they burst forward, that could leave space for United to break into at Villa Park.

United have won on their last two visits to Villa Park and while it may be difficult here, we’ll back Rangnick’s men to get the job done.

Our prediction: Villa 1-2 United
