Manchester United XI vs Aston Villa: Confirmed squad news, most recent injury, line-up planned for Carabao Cup game

Recently named in Brazil’s World Cup squad, winger Antony is said by his national team doctor to be on the mend after a hip injury, but his place in the third round is not yet assured. Sancho, meanwhile, has missed the last two games due to illness.

Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag said ahead of tonight’s game: “Jadon Sancho, we have to wait. And Antoine, we have to wait, today [Wednesday]in final training.

Anthony Martial was able to return as a substitute last time out and Ten Hag confirmed he was back in the squad. The cup reunion is a hasty rematch after Villa cruised past United on Unai Emery’s debut at the weekend.

Ten Hag could choose to shake up his formation to inject fresh energy while saving legs for the next trip to Fulham, who are just four points behind in the Premier League table.

Bruno Fernandes returns from suspension and Diogo Dalot is also available ahead of a league ban for the Fulham game. Raphael Varane will definitely be out and there could be a place for young winger Shola Shoretire after several games on the bench.

Alejandro Garnacho was usually hoping for a Carabao Cup runout but the 18-year-old has started two games in a row and could be dropped from the XI, with Anthony Elanga and Facundo Pellistri pushing to get involved.

Predicts Manchester United XI: Dubravka; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Malacia; Fred, McTominay; Sancho, Fernandes, Elanga; Martial.
