3 Ways Man United Can Line Up Vs Aston Villa

After that embarrassing loss to Wolves, Ralf Rangnick is likely to make changes. Dean Henderson will most likely get a start in this cup game. Diogo Dalot and Alex Telles can also come back into the team, alongside the fit Victor Lindelof.

Higher up the pitch, Fred and Marcus Rashford are likely to start after being left out in the last few games. Mason Greenwood could start alongside Cristiano Ronaldo up-front to add more goal-scoring options.

Option 2: Rotations galore

Of course, Ralf can also decide to make a statement by really rotating his squad from the last game. This could mean benching the likes of Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, and Scott McTominay! Edinson Cavani can play alongside Greenwood upfront, while Bruno Fernandes is likely to come back in to add a more creative threat.

This team is quite similar to the regular ones that played last season, with only Donny van de Beek being an addition as he’s due a start under Rangnick.

Option 3: Play the kids

As Hannibal Mejbri is out on AFCON duty, he’s replaced with Anthony Elanga – who has impressed under Rangnick. If the gaffer wants, he can give full debuts to the likes of Charlie Savage, Zidane Iqbal, Paul McShane, Martin Svidersky, and Reece Devine in this game!
