EPL Match: Manchester United Will Lose On Saturday if They Play These Three Players

The English Premier League(EPL) will continue this weekend with many matches scheduled. One big match millions of fans worldwide will be interested in is the clash between Manchester United popularly known as the Red Devils and Aston Villa at exactly 14:30 East African Time.

Manchester will approach the game with pressure especially after they lost one goal to nil against Westham at Old Trafford yesterday in EFL Cup. The Red Devils appeared shaky in all the departments in that match. In terms of ball possession, they had 61 per cent with passing accuracy standing at 84%.

Jardon Sancho, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial were leading the attack. Their combination was poor throughout the game.

Here are three players that should not be started on Saturday if Ole Gunnar Soljkjaer needs all three points.

Jesse Lingard

He is a good player who does well when brought in as a substitute. He should be rested and his place taken by

Anthony Martial

He has been performing dismally in many matches he has started. He had a nightmare yesterday as failed to register a shot on target. Soljkjaer should consider a different attacker to combine with Cristiano Ronaldo on Saturday.

Juan Mata

He was among the best players at Old Trafford a few years ago. Currently, his form is questionable. Edison Cavani should start instead to add experience to the attack.

In my view, this lineup will discipline Aston Villa mercilessly. David De Gea, Diago Dalot, Erick Baily, Victor Lindelof, Alex Telles, Bruno Fernandes Van De Beek, Nemanja Matic, Edison Cavani, Cristiano Ronaldo and Jardon Sancho

A win for the Red Devils will see them top the table standings with 16 points in six matches. Remember also that Aston Villa is in great form after thrashing Everton three goals to nil last week. This early kick-off will be exciting.
