Confirmed XI: Donny van de Beek and Alejandro Garnacho to start against Aston Villa – Man United News And Transfer News

Donny van de Beek kept his Manchester United job against Aston Villa this afternoon.

Despite a lackluster performance against Real Sociedad in midweek, Bruno Fernandes’ absence through suspension means Eric ten Hag will give his compatriot another chance against the struggling Midlands side.

There is also a start for boy wonder Alejandro Garnacho on the left wing.

Cristiano Ronaldo continues up front with Marcus Rashford presumably operating on the right flank.

This means that neither Jadon Sancho nor Antony have recovered in time for the match and are not included on the bench.

Casemiro and Christian Eriksen continue their excellent partnership in deep midfield.

In defence, it’s business as usual, with David de Gea behind Diogo Dalot, Victor Lindelof, Lisandro Martínez and Luke Shaw.

Harry Maguire has to be content with a place on the bench after his midweek exploits as a centre-forward. Ronaldo has been named captain in his and Bruno’s absence.

There is good news on the injury front, as Anthony Martial is fit enough to be placed on the bench after missing several games.

They are joined on the bench by Martin Dubravka, Tyrell Malacia, Fred, Scott McTominay, Facundo Pellistri, Anthony Elanga and Shola Shoretire.

The match at Villa Park starts at 2pm.
