Manchester United are looking to bounce back from their midweek loss to West Ham in the Carabao Cup with Aston Villa visiting Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side maintained their promising start to the season last weekend against the Hammers, picking up a spectacular late victory at London Stadium thanks to Jesse Lingard’s goal and David De Gea’s penalty in stoppage time Villa, meanwhile, bombarded Everton last weekend with a fine appearance from Leon Bailey, but they came shortly in midweek against Chelsea in the Cup, with the European champions winning on penalties. goal.

Meanwhile, the Norwegian boss deduced that comments from Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp last season resulted in fewer penalties for United: “I don’t know, but there was a certain manager last time around. [season] who was starting to fear that we would get penalties, and after that it seems like decisions are more difficult to make. I have surely seen a big, big difference since then. “

Aston Villa manager Dean Smith speaking to BBC Sport:

“It gives the players a lot of confidence now. We faced Chelsea, and we came here and we faced each other.

“They probably had a lot more chances than we did, but it was smaller chances and we had really big chances and deserved the win.

“We caused them problems on set pieces and we get that goal and want to see the game then, but inevitably when we play at Man Utd we give a penalty.

“It was extremely hard, I don’t know where he wanted to put his arm and probably justice was served. They’ll enjoy this one and certainly our fans will because it’s a long time coming. “

Villa, meanwhile, are up to seventh with 10 points in their opening six games.

After a difficult start to the campaign, Dean Smith’s weeks have been very impressive. They felt they should have come away with something after their 3-0 loss to Chelsea and would also have been aggrieved to come away with just one point here if Fernandes had scored his penalty.

Their move to 3-5-2 has worked, especially against the top teams, and Smith’s side look set for a solid season.

In the other game today, Manchester City beat Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.

What a tragedy, especially since there were questions about who would be United’s penalty taker this season following Ronaldo’s arrival.

And how costly could this result and performance be for Solskjaer? It is still very early in the season but his team are absent from the Carabao Cup and have lost matches in the Premier League and the Champions League.

Injuries to Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire are yet another blow to United, ahead of their midweek fixture against Villarreal before hosting Everton next weekend.

Manchester United 0-0 Aston Villa

84 minutes: Lindelof unnecessarily concedes a corner and heads for a villa center without any pressure.

Relief for the center-back, however, after Ronaldo cleared at the back post and Ramsey shot him.

Ramsey is then replaced by 19-year-old forward Cameron Archer, who has scored four goals for Villa this season in the Cup.
