Team news for Aston Villa v Man United

Aston Villa and United get the Premier League weekend off to an unusually early start.

Team news for Aston Villa v Man United

Will Rudy Gestede be celebrating again tonight?

The match was scheduled for tomorrow, but moved at the request of English police due to a planned demonstration tomorrow - non-football related.

With De Gea reportedly asking not to play, United continue with sub keeper Sergio Romero, and Wayne Rooney once again starts up front.

Villa’s new signing Rudy Gestede scored on his debut to give his side a 1-0 win last week, and manager Tim Sherwood would dearly love him to do the same tonight.

Both sides won their opening games - history suggests United should come out on top tonight.

Aston Villa: Guzan, Bacuna, Richards, Clark, Amavi, Veretout, Gueye, Westwood, Ayew, Agbonlahor, Sinclair. Subs: Baker, Richardson, Hutton, Sanchez, Kozak, Bunn, Gestede.

Man Utd: Romero, Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Shaw, Carrick, Schneiderlin, Mata, Depay, Januzaj, Rooney. Subs: Hernandez, Young, Ander Herrera, Valencia, Schweinsteiger, McNair, Johnstone.

Referee: Mike Dean (Wirral)
