Confirmed Man Utd XI vs Aston Villa – Pogba and Fernandes start in midfield

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named his Manchester United starting line-up to face Aston Villa in the Premier League.

Manchester United can go level on points with league leaders Liverpool tonight if they can beat Villa at Old Trafford.

There is plenty of reasons to be optimistic as a United fan going into the New Year, but we’ve got to keep winning football matches if we aim to take part in a title race.

We can talk about being potentially involved in one this season because things are looking good. Though we’re not naive enough to get giddy just yet because with a few bad results we could easily drop a few places down the table.

It bodes well for United’s chances that everyone is inconsistent this season. For a side defending a title — their first in 30 years — Liverpool will be very disappointed with a number of their results this season.

United’s XI to face Villa is as follows, as per @ManUtd: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Shaw, Fred, McTominay, Pogba, Fernandes, Rashford, Martial.
