Manchester United played against Aston Villa on Saturday.
The Red Devils were coming to the match after losing to West Ham United in the Carabao Cup in a match which was played during the mid-week.
Ole Gunnar Solksjaer started with his usual formation. De Gea was the goalkeeper with Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane, Luke Shaw and Bissaka being the defenders. McTominay and Fred played as the two defensive midfielders. Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba played just behind Cristiano Ronaldo.
The opening half was interesting with both teams losing a number of good chances. However, Fred failed once again to impress in the midfield. He kept on losing balls and failed to intercept some balls when Aston Villa was counterattacking.
Manchester United fans were disappointed by Solksjaer's choice of starting Fred and leaving players like Van De Beek on the bench.
