Manchester United will be looking to continue their impressive pre-season form when they face Aston Villa on Saturday. The clash against the fellow Premier League side at Optus Stadium will bring an end to their tour of Thailand and Australia. The Red Devils have been in good form this summer, winning all their games convincingly. The same can be said for Villa, who have also won their three matches in the pre-season. Hence, both sides will be keen to maintain their momentum when they face each other on Saturday.

It was a below-par campaign for both sides last season in the Premier League. Manchester United could only finish sixth with 58 points, while Aston Villa managed a 14th-place finish with just 45 points on board. Both sides also had a manager change in the middle of the season due to the team’s sub-par performances. The arrival of Steven Gerrard has overall been positive at Villa Park. However, the former Liverpool midfielder’s management skills will be fully judged based on how his team performs in his first full campaign as a manager in the English top division.

Possible Lineups

For new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag, it is all about making the players get used to his style of play. With the Dutchman demanding a lot of work rate without the ball, fitness is an absolute must for his players, allowing them to press and counter-press for long periods in the match. United have shown signs of playing in a system that is according to his style this summer but it is still early days. Hence, his priority in the friendlies would be to help the players get better used to his system.

Raphael Varane sat out the last match, while promising young midfielder James Garner was also unavailable. It will be interesting to see if either of them plays in the upcoming fixture. Their all-firing frontline of Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford, and Anthony Martial could yet again start this clash. Meanwhile, Crystal Palace will miss the services Jaden Philogene-Bidace, Kortney Hause and Keinan Davis for this match. They have already made quite a few signings in the summer, hence a few of them could start the Saturday match.

Manchester United possible line-up: De Gea; Dalot, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw, McTominay, Van de Beek, Fernandes, Sancho, Rashford, Martial

Aston Villa possible line-up: Martinez, Cash, Carlos, Mings, Digne, Kamara, McGinn, Coutinho, Bailey, Ings, Watkins
