Sir Alex Ferguson selected a strong side for today's game with Aston Villa, as his side look to reestablish a commanding lead at the top of the Premier League, and notably there was a very attacking bench selected by the home side, including a return for Dimitar Berbatov.
Aston Villa's injury problems meant there was a continued reliance on youth, as Alex McLeish handed starts to Nathan Baker and Eric Lichaj in defence, while impressive young Austrain striker Andreas Weimann also started the game after scoring a wonderful goal against Stoke City last time out.
