Predicted Starting XI: Villa vs. United

United head to Villa Park on Saturday in the hope of opening up a gap at the top of the table, if only for a short space of time as our title rivals both play on Sunday. Fergie rested a few key names against Braga in the week, including Michael Carrick, Rio Ferdinand and Tom Cleverley

We have Chris Smalling back in the first-team fold, however Nani picked up a hamstring strain and Jonny Evans is a doubt due to a groin problem.

Jordan’s predicted XI

De Gea; Rafael, Smalling, Ferdinand, Evra; Valencia, Carrick, Cleverley, Young; Rooney, Van Persie

Ben’s predicted XI

De Gea; Rafael, Evans, Ferdinand, Evra; Valencia, Carrick, Scholes, Young; Rooney, van Persie
