Unfortunately, things did not go well for David Moyes. However, Arsenal played a great game.

The top three teams have pulled ahead, with Villa and United in pursuit for a spot in European tournaments.

The focus is on the central midfield duo of experienced player and young player from Manchester United.

Ten Hag expressed his joy in Casemiro’s return, stating that Kobbie can gain valuable knowledge from him. Describing Kobbie as a highly receptive student and Casemiro as a seasoned player, Ten Hag believes that Kobbie will make great strides in his development by learning from him. Having both players on the team allows for mutual growth and improvement when they are on the field together.

When questioned about their relationship, Ten Hag affirmed that Casemiro is very involved and responsible in guiding and communicating with Kobbie. This is evident not only in the locker room, but also during training and games. Casemiro not only focuses on improving his own performance, but also on assisting and encouraging Kobbie.

There is only one modification in the lineup, which is Youri Tielemans being replaced by Jacob Ramsey. Lisandro Martinez will not be playing for United due to a knee injury from last week, and Raphael Varane will return to the team.

Aston Villa’s starting lineup includes Martinez, Cash, Diego Carlos, Lenglet, Alex Moreno, Kamara, Douglas Luiz, Bailey, Ramsey, and McGinn. The substitutes are Tielemans, Digne, Torres, Diaby, Zaniolo, Olsen, Rogers, Kesler-Hayden, and Iroegbunam.

Man Utd: Onana, Dalot, Maguire, Varane, Shaw, Casemiro, Mainoo, Garnacho, Bruno Fernandes, Rashford, Hojlund. Subs: Bayindir, Lindelof, Amrabat, Eriksen, Diallo, Antony, Evans, McTominay, Forson.

The official in charge: Robert Jones from Merseyside.

Manchester United have made a comeback recently, with a sense of calm settling in and progress being made. Despite some previous letdowns, their win over Villa on Boxing Day has given hope for a successful season under manager Erik Ten Hag, despite potential changes at the end of the season. On the other hand, Villa has not been able to replicate their impressive 2023 season in 2024. However, they are still in contention for a top-four/five spot and a win against United could harm their competition. This has the potential to be an exciting match.

The event will begin at 4:30 pm UK time. Come join me.
