Lineups, starting 11 for Aston Villa vs Man United: Rasmus Hojlund to continue hot streak?

Manchester United travel to Villa Park on Sunday to face Aston Villa in the Premier League.

United came back from a two-goal deficit on Boxing Day at Old Trafford to beat Unai Emery’s side 3-2 thanks to Rasmus Hojlund’s late winner. 

Erik ten Hag’s side appear to have turned a corner in 2024. They are unbeaten in the calendar year and enjoying a three-game win streak, their joint-longest this season. 

By contrast, Villa have fallen off some superb form from late 2023 and the midweek FA Cup replay defeat to Chelsea means they have won just one of their past five outings across all competitions.

Lineups, starting 11 for Aston Villa vs Man United

Aston Villa predicted starting 11

Despite their form wobbles, fourth-placed Villa would extend their advantage over United to 11 points with a victory that would feel like a huge step on the road to Champions League qualification.

Emery’s side could see Pau Torres come back into the starting XI after being on the bench on Wednesday in Villa’s loss to Chelsea. Nicolo Zaniolo is also back from injury but the home side are expected to be without Lucas Digne.

Aston Villa predicted lineup (4-2-3-1, right to left): Martinez (GK) — Cash, Torres, Lenglet, Moreno; Luiz, Kamara — Diaby, Tielemans, McGinn — Watkins.

  • Injured: Tyrone Mings, Lucas Digne

After another devastating injury setback, Lisandro Martinez is out. Raphael Varane could come in to partner Harry Maguire at centre-back.

Man United predicted starting 11

Man United predicted lineup (4-3-3, right to left): Onana (GK) — Dalot, Maguire, Varane, Shaw — Mainoo, Casemiro, Fernandes — Garnacho, Hojlund, Rashford.

  • Injured: Tyrell Malacia, Mason Mount, Lisandro Martinez, Anthony Martial
