14:12: Ronald’s absence is caused by a minor injury rather than a seven resting or falling:

14:00: How will Rangnick show his side? The German could place Fernandes in the middle of 4-2-3-1, or alternatively continue his 4-2-2-2 formation. The latter also has questions about whether Marcus Rashford or Mason Greenwood are next to Edinson Cavani.

13:57: And here, as expected, is Villa’s strong eleven:

13:56: The complete United team is here:

13:55: Ronaldo missed! The Portuguese superstar has not been named on the bench either, compatriot Bruno Fernandes is returning to the top 11 as captain.

13:42: One man who will definitely not be on the field tonight is Philippe Coutinho. However, the Brazilian underwent a medical examination in the villa today and is ready to make his debut next weekend.

13:40: We are now 15 minutes away from confirmed team reports. Will Cristiano Ronaldo rest before Saturday’s next league match with Villa?

13:34: United is trying to end the five-season trophy drought, with its latest silver being the UEFA Europa League 2016/17 led by José Mourinh. The last Red Devils triumph in the FA Cup came a season earlier, under the leadership of Louis van Gaal.

13:29: Gerrard, who has won the FA Cup twice as a Liverpool player, spoke at the pre-match press conference about the FA Cup’s appeal: “It’s a real tradition, it’s a special competition for everyone who is English and British, because we know it very well. But I think that every foreigner who comes to the country when you talk to them will always come to the FA Cup. So he got a name for himself all over the world. “

13:11: Rangnick called on Man United to play with a “different energy level” than the party demonstrated against the Wolves. He also chose a midfielder as a key force for Aston Villa.

13:02: Gerrard’s last appearance as a player against Man United was probably his most painful – the infamous red card at Anfield, just 38 seconds after he was replaced.

12:55: Welcome to the live sports broadcast of Man United vs. Aston Villa. As in the previous season, there are no repetitions in the 3rd round of the FA Cup, so a tie must be decided tonight, with overtime and penalties if necessary.
