Varane, it’s official


By: Manu Tournoux

Absent last Saturday against West Ham due to illness, Raphaël Varane returns to Manchester United’s starting lineup for the clash against Aston Villa this Tuesday evening.

Raphaël Varane has the opportunity to continue his momentum with Manchester United. Very good during the draw result of the Red Devils in Liverpool (0-0) ten days ago, the ex-French international missed the match in the den of West Ham (2-0 defeat), last Saturday, because sick.

Erik ten Hag can count on his 30-year-old central defender this Tuesday evening of Boxing Day to partner him with Jonny Evans, 35, after having launched the young Frenchman Willy Kambwala (19) into the deep end.

The Red Devils are led offensively by Bruno Fernandes, Alejandro Garnacho, Rasmus Hojlund and Marcus Rashford preferred to Antony. Anthony Martial is unavailable.

As for the Villans, third in the standings, Unai Emery can field Emiliano Martinez, Diego Carlos, Clément Lenglet, Lucas Digne but not Boubacar Kamara, suspended, nor Youri Tielemans, injured.
