Which players could feature in Man United vs. Aston Villa

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag appeared to pick his best available line-up against Crystal Palace on Tuesday, with that XI playing the first 65 minutes at the MCG.

The only real surprise in Ten Hag’s selection was a preference for Tyrell Malacia at left-back ahead of Luke Shaw, while Donny van de Beek was given the entire second half to prove himself, indicating he is in a duel with Scott McTominay for a starting role.

It’s likely Ten Hag will pick his best team once again for at least the first half of the match as he tries to get the players to gel with the new, attacking style of play he is bringing to the club.

It’s expected Villa will select a strong side to match up against United’s best available XI. 

The likes of Philippe Coutinho, Ollie Watkins, Danny Ings, Aaron Ramsey and Lucas Digne will all feature throughout the match.
