Unai Emery will enjoy his first game in charge of Aston Villa this weekend as Villa Park host Manchester United in the Premier League. The match for Villa will come after a heavy 4-0 defeat to Newcastle despite the side beating Brentford by the same scoreline just six days before.

Manchester United, on the other hand, were able to secure the necessary three points after beating West Ham 1-0 at home. Marcus Rashford scored the only goal of the match as his return to form continues. United also announced recently that they will be holding a winter training camp for those players not involved in the World Cup and Erik ten Hag’s team will travel to Spain to play Cadiz in a friendly.

John Murtough, United’s foorball director said: “Erik and the team have made good progress during this first half of the season, and it is important we maintain this momentum coming out of the World Cup break. The camp and game will also allow for some of our young talent to experience training and playing in a first-team environment, as well as provide entertaining club football for fans.”

Team news

Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes will serve a one-match ban this weekend after he picked up his fifth Premier League booking of the season during United’s 1-0 win over West Ham last weekend. He has so far played every minute for United in the Premier League so far this season meaning Erik ten Hag will be forced to make an unwanted change.

Aston Villa have suffered their own blow after goalkeeper Emi Martinez was forced off before half-time in the clash against Newcastle on the weekend. Martinez took a blow to the head from teammate Tyrone Mings’ knee and, despite staying on the pitch for 14 minutes after, he came off in the 35th minute.
