Aston Villa predicted the line-up against Manchester United


Aston Villa host Manchester United on Saturday night, after just losing to the Red Devils in the third round of the FA Cup.

Steven Gerrard’s men played well at Old Trafford and did not deserve to come out of the match with a third straight defeat in all competitions. Losses against Chelsea and Brentford before their previous trip have ruined what has been an extremely encouraging start to Gerrard’s time at Villa Park.

This weekend, they face a United team that is trying to overcome some miserable achievements to come back and fight in the race for European qualifiers. This is how Villa can line up for this Premier League match.

Emi Martinez (GK) – No zero in a month, but there is no doubt about his shooting ability.

Matty Cash (RB) – His dynamism and shooting on the right wing is a joy to watch and having started all of his team’s Premier League outings so far this campaign, he should be ready for another.

Ezri Konsa (CB) – Villa’s midfield pair looks quite carved these days, which means that Konsa will probably start their 19th league match this semester.

Tyrone Mings (CB) – And once again the team captain should be English national team player Mings, who returned from a match absence last time. Lucas Digne (LB) – The Frenchman’s signing was confirmed on Thursday so he can be set for a very exciting debut on Saturday.

Jacob Ramsey (CM) – Apparently impresses Gerrard, having missed just one league outing since the new boss arrived.

Douglas Luiz (CM) – Once again he shows his undoubted quality in the heart of the team, Luiz is a shoo-in to start for Villa.

Morgan Sanson (CM) – John McGinn will miss by suspension, which will probably open the door for the Frenchman Sanson.

Emi Buendia (RW) – While Leon Bailey continues to recover from a hamstring problem, Buendia’s role to the right of the front three seems pretty certain.

Ollie Watkins (ST) – Gave United all sorts of problems last time and will surely be an absolute nuisance once again when the red devils visit the city.

Philippe Coutinho (LW) – The one that everyone wants to see. Danny Ings was brilliant at Old Trafford last Monday, but come on, it would be so rude not to.
