The Red Devils welcome the Villans at Old Trafford today after coming off a stunning EFL Cup eviction
United would need to produce another win against Aston Villa today in order to extend their chase for the Premier League trophy.
The side are yet to lose any game in the Premier League this season and Solskjaer hopes to make sure this isn’t the first he would lose despite a poor game against West Ham during the week.
Having won in 18 of their last 21 home league games against Villa, United hope to extend their long history of maintaining the longest win run against any opponent as they have on Aston Villa (37 wins).
Aston Villa on the other hand haven’t been a very good shape lately, grabbing only 7 points from their 5 games.
The side will be hoping to materialize a win against United today and make the stats now say 2 wins in their last 46 games against United.
Edinson Cavani will be available today as Ole Solskjaer will be hoping to unleash new role for Cristiano Ronaldo who has been fielding as United’s number 9.
Eric Bailey made an appearance against West Ham United during the EFL Cup Tie and could be picked today but it’s clearer seeing Varane and Maguire.
