Predicted Aston Villa and Manchester United line-ups

Villa Park Clear

Here is how we predict Aston Villa and Manchester United will line up on Friday.

To be played on Friday 14th August 2015 at 18:45. Venue: Villa Park, Birmingham

Odds: Aston Villa 4/1, Draw 14/5, Man Utd 4/6

Aston Villa welcome Manchester United to Villa Park on Friday evening for a big game at an unlikely time.

Both sides started the new Premier League campaign with a victory, United winning 1-0 against Tottenham Hotspur and Villa winning by the same score-line against Bournemouth.

United have a great recent record at Villa Park but Tim Sherwood’s side have impressed with their summer signings and they will want to get a win in front of their home fans as soon as possible.

United will rely on Wayne Rooney to score the goals while Villa’s back line will be marshalled by the ever-impressive Ciaran Clark.

In early team news, Villa are without centre-back Jores Okore due to a knee injury while Jack Grealish and Carles Gil are doubts with a hamstring injury and a knock respectively. Summer signing Jose Angel Crespo has a knee injury but has a 75 per cent chance of being fit.

As for United, they are without the suspended Marouane Fellaini, while Phil Jones has a blood clot and Marcos Rojo is lacking match fitness.
