Marcus Rashford has been directly involved in 58% of Manchester United’s 19 Goals this season. Jack Grealish on the other is a ball magnet as he has carried the ball 3441 metres (most in PL).
What to expect:
Both the teams are desperate for 3 points as a win for Hosts could take them at 5th position (Depending upon other results tonight). 3 points for visitors will take them at 12th position well away from the danger zone. The Midfield of Aston Villa is stronger than Hosts’, Jack Grealish will be influential is the build up play. The Manchester United attack depends heavily upon Daniel James as he will look to bomb down the wing.
