EARLY TEAM NEWS FOR VILLA CUP TIE: Harry Maguire, Bruno, Varane, Lindelof and More

Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has plenty to ponder as he prepares for the visit of Aston Villa in the Emirates FA Cup.Information Guide Nigeria

The third-round tie is our third successive Monday match and affords the Reds a chance to avenge the home defeat to the Midlanders earlier in the campaign, even if both managers have changed since then.

Ralf has already admitted he may change the 4-2-2-2 formation after the setback against Wolves in our first outing of 2022, with a system incorporating three at the back used during the second half of the 1-0 loss.

Skipper Harry Maguire will hopefully be available again after experiencing pain following a blow to the chest in the 3-1 win over Burnley. Victor Lindelof is another centre-back who could rejoin the squad after an absence due to COVID-19.
