Scott McTominay and Marcus Rashford return but Edinson Cavani has been benched as Manchester United prepare to take on Aston Villa at Villa Park.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made four changes to the side that started against AS Roma in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday as Manchester United get set to lock horns with Aston Villa at Villa Park. The first shuffle comes in goal, with Dean Henderson taking his customary place in a Premier League game ahead of David de Gea.
The opening change among the outfield players is at the heart of the Manchester United defence, where Victor Lindelof comes in for Eric Bailly to pair up with Manchester United captain Harry Maguire. Out wide, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw keep their places as the two full-backs.

Up ahead in midfield, Scott McTominay is back in the double pivot alongside his usual partner Fred, with Paul Pogba moving into the advanced role on the left wing. This change has directly resulted in the omission of Donny van de Beek from the starting lineup, with the Dutchman back on the bench.
On the right flank, Marcus Rashford returns, with Edinson Cavani surprisingly making way despite a stunning brace against Roma earlier this week. With Cavani on the bench, Mason Greenwood is likely to lead the line for Manchester United at Villa Park, with Bruno Fernandes playing off of him.
