Manchester United, who generally seem to be going in the right direction with injuries again, have suffered two injury blows ahead of the game against Aston Villa which kicks off the busy festive program (15:00 Local time Saturday).

Marouane Fellaini

Having started the last 8 games for Manchester United The Belgian would have expected to start again this weekend but he has been laid up with illness. Louis van Gaal confirmed:

“We have five injuries and Fellaini is ill so they are not coming up.”

Marcos Rojo

There was a feeling that the Argenitnian would be available again for this one but the manager stated that he isn’t yet fit.


In one positive piece of injury news the Manchester United manager did report that long-term absentee Rafael da Silva is back and fully fit. Da Silve had a really encouraging start to the season under the new manager but injury has once again blighted his momentum. And with Antonio Valencia playing his best football in years at right wing back the Brazilian won’t find it straightforward to get back in the team, as Louis suggested:

“Rafael is not injured. Last week he was fit but I have to select. Rojo No”

Despite these absentees, there is a good chance that Manchester United will finally be able to report a clean bill of health among the senior stars over the next fortnight.

Here’s our best XI with those changes in mind.
