Manchester United v Aston Villa: match preview

After losses to Young Boys in the Champions League and West Ham in the Carabao Cup and, considering Manchester United’s star-laden squad, Ole Gunnar Solskjær could use a win, in a game brought forward from 3pm because of a Courteeners concert at the other Old Trafford. Aston Villa, who handed Everton a 3-0 defeat in their last league outing, should arrive confident, though the last time they won here was December 2009. Jamie Jackson
