Manchester United will continue their push for Champions League football away at struggling Aston Villa on Thursday. Leicester City’s 1-1 draw with Arsenal earlier in the week means Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men would move within a point of fourth place with a victory, with just four league games remaining this season. United will certainly be expecting a win over a Villa side currently four points adrift of safety, and winless since January.
Villa will be without Tom Heaton, Wesley, Björn ‘Friedrich’ Engels and Matt Targett, who are all injured. For United, Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones are sidelined; Victor Lindelöf faces a late fitness test, and might be replaced by Eric Bailly in defence. Otherwise, we can expect to see a full-strength side.
