Amad Diallo and Marcus Rashford are Manchester United's only absentees for Saturday's Premier League clash with Aston Villa.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that his side did not suffer any fresh injury problems during their 1-0 defeat to West Ham United in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night.

Edinson Cavani was not involved in the League Cup fixture due to a lack of fitness, but the Uruguay international has been cleared to return to the squad against Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon.

Amad Diallo remains unavailable for selection due to a thigh problem, while Marcus Rashford is not yet ready to return, with the England international recovering from a shoulder operation.

The 20-time English champions otherwise have a fully-fit squad, though, with the likes of Dean Henderson and Phil Jones now both available for selection.

"We didn't lose anyone on Wednesday night. It gives me selection headaches [smiles], which is what I'd rather have than the other way around," Solskjaer told MUTV.

"Sometimes you have to leave players out that you don't feel deserve to be left out. But that's the nature of the beast and we've got to make sure we are ready for every single game."

Man United will be looking to make it four Premier League victories in a row when they welcome Dean Smith's Villa side to Old Trafford.
