Manchester United take on Aston Villa for a second time in a week this afternoon with the hope of securing a second win over Steven Gerrard’s team.

There has been plenty of talk off the field, with Cristiano Ronaldo critical of young players’ inability to take advice on board, and Ralf Rangnick gave his take on the legendary player’s view during the pre-match press conference.

But after months of poor displays, United can’t keep talking about what they want to achieve, but instead go out and get the job done. With Scott McTominay and Luke Shaw unavailable Rangnick will have to change things around at Villa Park.

De Gea, Dalot, Lindelof, Varane, Telles, Matic, Fred, Bruno Fernandes, Greenwood, Cavani, Elanga.

Subs: Heaton, Henderson, Jones, Maguire, Mata, Lingard, Van de Beek, Sancho.

Villa: Martinez, Cash, Konsa, Mings, Digne, Sanson, Luiz, Ramsey, Buendia, Ings, Watkins.

Subs: Kesler, Hause, Targett, Young, Iroegbunam, Chukwuemeka, Coutinho, Archer, Steer.
