Team news from Villa v Man Utd
Solskjaer told the club’s official website after the Roma game that he had no new injury concerns.
Anthony Martial is back in training but is not expected to play a role against Villa. Phil Jones is left out.
Daniel James wasn’t fit for the trip to Rome and Solskjaer hasn’t offered him an update since the game.
Our prediction: Villa versus United
The second leg was a close game on New Years Day, which United won 2-1 thanks to a penalty from Bruno Fernandes.
A rested Villa side can see an opportunity and is fueled by a sense of injustice over controversial free kicks United has awarded in their last two inter-team meetings.
It won’t be an easy task and it’s up to Solskjaer to expertly juggle his squad with three league games in three days.
A win here would take some pressure off the games against Leicester and Liverpool and the absence of Jack Grealish should make that task easier for United.
Our prediction: Villa 1-2 United
