Aston Villa v Man Utd preview

Aston Villa will be without influential midfielder Fabian Delph through suspension for Sunday's home game with Manchester United after he picked up his fifth yellow card of the season.

Captain Ron Vlaar (calf) will also miss out, as will striker Libor Kozak (ankle), but full-back Antonio Luna could be in contention for a return if he is deemed to have recovered from a groin injury.

Uncertainty surrounds the expected return dates of Joe Bennett (back) and Charles N'Zogbia (calf), while defender Jores Okore (knee) remains a long-term absentee.

United will be without striker Robin Van Persie for the next month due to a thigh injury, but they are boosted by the return of Wayne Rooney who is available for selection having served his one-match suspension.

Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic are both doubts having picked up knocks over the last week, while there are also worries over the fitness of Chris Smalling (hamstring) and Marouane Fellaini (back).

Moyes could made a number of changes from their midweek win over Shakhtar Donetsk, with Tom Cleverley available to return to the starting line-up.

Watch Aston Villa take on Manchester United this Sunday from 1.30pm on Sky Sports 1 HD.
