Aston Villa vs Manchester United highlights and reaction

United are one of four teams not in Premier League action this weekend, with the Reds having been allowed an extra week off before the start of their campaign, to allow them at least a 30-day gap between seasons, after they participated in the latter stages of the Europa League last month.

Henderson; Dalot, Fosu-Mensah, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Van de Beek’ Rashford, Lingard, James; Ighalo.
