Speaking to BetVictor, Michael Owen said: “He’s only been in the job for a short time, but pressure is on Ralf Rangnick.
“Performances haven’t been good, and Manchester United are desperate to win some silverware this season.
“Aston Villa will be up for this and there’s no way Steven Gerrard will play a weakened side here. Man United might, and I can see Villa edging this.”
Owen’s prediction: Man United 1–2 Aston Villa
Man United face Villa at home in the FA Cup third round at home on Monday in what will be Gerrard’s first visit to Old Trafford as manager.
Should the Red Devils win the game, they will face Championship side Middlesbrough in the fourth round showdown next month.
