Aston Villa vs. Manchester United: Lineups

David looks to topple Goliath today as Aston Villa hosts league leading Manchester United at Villa Park.

No major surprises for United as Sir Alex puts out his usual formation with the usual suspects. Antonio Valencia once again plays in place of the injured Nani, while Jonny Evans overcame fitness concerns to start in the central defense.

Paul Lambert has handed Enda Stevens his first ever Premier League start with Eric Lichaj suspended and Joe Bennett injured. It's a very positive and attacking lineup for Villa and basically the same group that beat Sunderland last weekend. Of course, United is no Sunderland.

Aston Villa starting lineup (4-4-2): Brad Guzan; Matthew Lowton, Ron Vlaar, Ciaran Clark, Enda Stevens; Ashley Westwood, Barry Bannan, Stephen Ireland, Andreas Weimann; Gabriel Agbonlahor, Christian Benteke.

Manchester United lineup (4-2-3-1): David De Gea; Rafael, Rio Ferdinand, Jonny Evans, Patrice Evra; Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley; Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young, Wayne Rooney; Robin Van Persie
