Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Aston Villa

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension issues ahead of Thursday's Premier League clash with Aston Villa.

Manchester United will be looking to make it four Premier League victories in a row when they head to struggling Aston Villa on Thursday night.

The Red Devils have been in excellent form since returning to action last month, taking 10 points from four matches to leave themselves firmly in the race for the top four.

United thumped Bournemouth 5-2 at Old Trafford on Saturday and sit just two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea in the table, while they are only three points off third-placed Leicester City.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the team's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with Villa, who are currently battling to escape the relegation zone.
