Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that he is expecting a tough Premier League tie against Aston Villa.
Coming into Sunday’s match, the Red Devils are in fine domestic form as they look to continue their impressive 13 game unbeaten run.
Ahead of the mouth-watering match, Solskjaer named a strong starting eleven and although fans will be disappointed to learn winger Amad has missed out, there will still be plenty of attacking players on the field of play.
Although Dean Smith’s Villa currently sit mid-table, Solskjaer will not be underestimating the threats they pose and has assured fans his side will be looking to put in a commanding performance.
“We need to just put a performance up,” the Norweigan said. “Just asked the players – their job is to focus for 90-minutes. It’s my job to choose whoever plays the next one.
“We’ve had many difficult games against them – pre-season here before this season, Old Trafford 2-1 with the penalty we won, so always difficult.”
“We’ll deal with Tuesday and Thursday later on.”
