Manchester United v Aston Villa: Wayne Rooney among first XI charged with winning the Premier League title
The teams meet at Old Trafford
Sir Alex Ferguson has included Wayne Rooney among the first XI for tonight's fixture against Aston Villa.
Should Manchester United win tonight they will be crowned champions - their 20th league title.
Also in the squad is Ryan Giggs while Nemanja Vidic is ruled out through injury and Rio Ferdinand is on the bench.
Rooney has been struggling for form of late and was memorably among the substitutes for United's last big night at Old Trafford when Real Madrid visited in the Champions League. Yet Ferguson has stuck by the England striker for this game.
There is one change for Aston Villa from their draw against Fulham - Gabriel Agbonlahor comes into an attacking looking side.
Manchester United: De Gea, Rafael, Jones, Evans, Evra; Valencia, Giggs, Carrick, Kagawa; Rooney, Van Persie.
Aston Villa: Guzan; Lowton, Vlaar, Baker, Bennett; Westwood, Delph; Weimann, N’Zogbia, Agbonlahor; Benteke.
