Team News

  • Nemanja Vidic is back available having served a suspension for his red card against Liverpool.
  • The Serbian will likely replace Rio Ferdinand at the back, while the likes of Giggs and Fletcher will hope to come into contention in midfield.
  • Moyes should make a number of changes, with Danny Welbeck potentially moving into a central striking role having netted twice in the reverse fixture.
  • Karim El Ahmadi and Andi Weimann were both forced off in the first half against Stoke so they will need to be assessed prior to the game.
  • The former is less likely to feature so Sylla will hope for a rare start or Bacuna could move forward with Lowton coming in at right-back.
  • Ciaran Clark will hope to come into contention after a poor performance from Nathan Baker last time out.

Prediction

  • United must bounce back from another hugely disappointing result in midweek but they have scored at least 3 goals in 6 of their last 7 home matches against Villa.
  • Paul Lambert's side are incredibly unpredictable, picking up results against some of the league's best teams this season only to put in the kind of performance that saw them fall to an embarrassing defeat to Stoke.
  • Such is the hit and miss nature of both sides, this is a tough match to call but despite their poor home record this season United will remain strong favourites.
