Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, has implemented four changes to the starting lineup for the Premier League clash against Aston Villa at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils aim to bounce back after securing only four points in their last five league games, placing them eight points behind the coveted Champions League spot.

With the need for a strong performance and a victory, Ten Hag has shuffled the squad following the recent 2-0 defeat to West Ham United.

In the defensive lineup, Raphael Varane returns to the heart of the backline alongside Jonny Evans, having recovered from illness. Willy Kambwala makes way and heads to the bench.

Diogo Dalot takes on the left-back role in the absence of Luke Shaw, who is sidelined due to a minor injury.

In the midfield, Scott McTominay is benched, making room for Kobbie Mainoo’s new partner, Christian Eriksen, to inject creativity. Unfortunately, Sofyan Amrabat misses the game due to a minor issue.

Further up the field, Marcus Rashford steps in on the right wing, replacing Antony, while Alejandro Garnacho retains his position on the opposite flank. Captain Bruno Fernandes resumes his regular role as the number 10, supporting Rasmus Hojlund, who leads the attack.

Confirmed Manchester United lineup (4-2-3-1) against Aston Villa: Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Evans, Varane, Dalot; Mainoo, Eriksen; Rashford, Fernandes, Garnacho; Hojlund.
