Adnan Januzaj has replaced Ashley Young on the wing for Manchester United in their match against Aston Villa tonight in Louis van Gaal's only change from the team who defeated Tottenham 1-0 in their opening Premier League fixture of the season.

Van Gaal said this week that the Belgian Januzaj is not for sale, after reported interest from Sunderland.

Louis van Gaal confirmed yesterday that goalkeeper David de Gea is still not mentally fit enough to play for United.

De Gea sat out United's season-opening win against Spurs last week. Van Gaal felt he was not able to focus because of speculation linking him with a move to Real Madrid.

Tim Sherwood's Aston Villa are unchanged from the team who beat Bournemouth 1-0.

Aston Villa XI: Guzan, Bacuna, Richards, Clark, Amavi, Veretout, Gueye, Westwood, Ayew, Agbonlahor, Sinclair.

Manchester United XI: Romero, Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Shaw, Carrick, Schneiderlin, Mata, Memphis, Januzaj, Rooney.
