Manchester United and Aston Villa conclude the third round of the FA Cup when they meet on Monday at 7.55pm (UK time).

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has previous in this competition during his illustrious playing days, winning the 2001 and 2006 editions, scoring a famous 35-yarder in the latter, and he will be relishing this match-up on the ground of an old rival. For Ralf Rangnick the pressure is already building after Man Utd’s recent 1-0 loss to Wolves. Defeat against a side managed by Gerrard and an early FA Cup exit would seriously raise the level of scrutiny already focusing in his direction.

Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial are unavailable for the hosts, with the former still injured and the latter pushing for an exit. Eric Bailly is also out of the question with the Ivorian travelling to Cameroon for Afcon 2021. Victor Lindelof is back in the fold but Harry Maguire remains doubtful, meaning Phil Jones could be in for another rare start. Elsewhere, Scott McTominay and Luke Shaw are suspended for the weekend’s Premier League clash against Aston Villa so they may start here.

Man Utd predicted XI: Henderson; Dalot, Jones, Lindelof, Shaw; McTominay, Fred, Van de Beek, Fernandes, Rashford, Ronaldo.

Elsewhere Trezeguet and Bertrand Traore are out of contention having linked up with Egypt and Burkina Faso respectively for Afcon 2021.
