Aston Villa star Morgan Sanson unavailable to face Manchester United this weekend

According to Birmingham Live, Manchester United have been handed a boost ahead of their Premier League clash against Aston Villa this upcoming weekend.

The Red Devils have won four of their first five games and are level on points with table-toppers Chelsea and Liverpool. Having tasted the sting of defeat in the Carabao Cup, they will be keen to get back to winning ways at the weekend.

According to the report, Villa will be without Morgan Sanson for the game. The French international was taken off with an injury against Chelsea and is now a doubt for the clash at the weekend.

Signed last January for £14 million, the 24-year-old’s absence will strip Smith of one option he can use in midfield. The Villa boss will have to contend with the return of United’s top stars who will be keen to get the club’s season back on track.

The Red Devils meanwhile have some good news on the injury front. Alex Telles and Dean Henderson made their first appearances of the season against West Ham. Phil Jones was also included in the squad and is now available for selection.

More so, Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba among others were afforded a breather and would be fresh for the upcoming games. With a Champions League clash against Villarreal also to come, the Red Devils will be keen to put together a run of wins.

The Red Devils are still coming to terms with the new additions to their squad. While slip-ups can be expected, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will also need to step up his game and get his players performing.
