Manchester United boss explains team XI vs Aston Villa

Speaking to reporters ahead of his side’s Premier League match against Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has explained his team selection.

Coming into Saturday’s early kick-off, the Norweigan has once again named a much-changed side, including star striker Cristiano Ronaldo making a return to action following a rare rest during mid-week.

Addressing his decision to change the entire side, Solskjaer (as quoted by MEN) said: “They are fresh, prepared well, have worked well this week.

“A few on the bench Wednesday night. We have prepared really well. Early kick-offs… It’s hard when you play Wednesday night. That’s part of the reason we did what we did on Wednesday night.”

United’s starting 11 will see David De Gea take Dean Henderson’s place in between the sticks with a back four made up of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Raphael Varane, captain Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw.
