Cristiano Ronaldo drives up the Old Trafford pitch for Man United

Manchester United look to bounce back from their midweek defeat by West Ham in the Carabao Cup with the visit of Aston Villa to Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side maintained their promising start to the season last weekend against the Hammers, securing a dramatic late victory at the London Stadium thanks to Jesse Lingard’s goal and David De Gea’s penalty save in stoppage time. Villa, intussen, blitzed Everton last weekend with a fine cameo from Leon Bailey, but they came just short midweek against Chelsea in the cup, met the European champions winning out on penalties.

Meanwhile the Norwegian boss inferred that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp’s comments last season have led to fewer penalties for United: “I don’t know, but there was a certain manager last [seisoen] who was starting to worry about us getting penalties, and after that it seems like the decisions are more difficult to give. Surely I’ve seen a big, big difference since then on.”

23 min: United again go straight down the other end as Greenwood and Fernandes link up and the Portuguese gets around the back of the Villa defence. His pull back to Ronaldo is cleared to Pogba, and his shot from the edge of the box is deflected out for a corner.

This is end to end!

22 min: Another big change for Villa and United get away with it! Maguire plays a sloppy back pass to De Gea and the United goalkeeper passes straight to Watkins as he stretches for the ball! Watkins looks like he has an empty net to aim at but De Gea recovers to make the save with his feet, as United clear.

Manchester United 0-0 Aston Villa

20 min: This is a good game. Villa are being bold with their approach and looks dangerous when they attack with their extra man out wide, but it’s also leaving United plenty of space to attack into when the hosts win the ball back.

Manchester United 0-0 Aston Villa

17 min: United immediately go on the attack as Pogba slips in Greenwood down the left. The 19-year-old cuts inside Tyrone Mings but can’t beat Martinez with his weak effort.

Fernandes is furious that Greenwood didn’t square the ball to him for a tap in.

Manchester United 0-0 Aston Villa

16 min: Huge chance for Villa! It’s brilliant play from the visitors. Cash plays a smart one-two with McGinn and suddenly United are cut open. Cash delivers a ball across the face from the byline and it finds Targett at the back post, but the left back can’t keep his effort down and blazes over the bar with close range!

Manchester United 0-0 Aston Villa

13 min: United look bright in attack early on. Paul Pogba had two opportunities to deliver from the left in quick succession and was unable to pull it back to a teammate, but it was nice play for Solskjaer’s side to work the ball into those areas.

Villa have been a bit loose in possession at times so far and United have been able to counter-attack well in response.

11 min: De Gea plays a first-time pass out wide to Fernandes, who brings it down and slips it inside to Ronaldo.

The forward finds himself in space 30 yards from goal as Villa back off, but he drags his shot wide of the target.
