Why Cristiano Ronaldo & Marcus Rashford are missing for Man United vs Aston Villa

Explanations for the respective absences of Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford from Manchester United’s matchday squad to face Aston Villa have been provided on Saturday evening.

Ralf Rangnick’s men are of course primed to return to action in short order.

After ousting Aston Villa from the FA Cup courtesy of a 1-0 triumph earlier this week, the Red Devils are set to face off with Steven Gerrard’s men once more in a little less than an hour’s time.

This comes with the Manchester giants sitting 7th in the English top-flight as things stand, adrift of all of West Ham United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
