Starting XI: Manchester United v Aston Villa – Barclays Premier League 2015/16

Manchester United face Aston Villa at Old Trafford in the Barclays Premier League this afternoon. The Red Devils earned their place in the semi-final of the Emirates FA Cup with a 2-1 victory over West Ham United on Wednesday, which will allow their season to continue with a chance of winning silverware, twelve years after their last FA Cup triumph. Aston Villa are on the verge of relegation, which could happen before kick-off if Norwich City rallies a comeback to beat Sunderland. Villa are one of seven teams to have always played in the Premier League, at the end of the season, that will fall to six teams, which is some achievement to have never been relegated. United need to destroy Villa this afternoon, to give them an advantage ahead of Manchester City’s match with Chelsea this evening, which could see a point separate the two sides if Chelsea manages a victory over the noisy neighbours. Come on UNITED!

De Gea;

Valencia, Smalling, Blind, Rojo;
