Aston Villa defender Axel Tuanzebe will miss the Premier League visit to Manchester United this weekend as part of the terms of his transfer. Tuanzebe is on loan at Aston Villa from Manchester United and he is ineligible for the league clash between the two teams as a result.
Villa boss Dean Smith confirmed his imminent absence ahead of the trip to Manchester in his pre-match presser on Thursday. He revealed that him and his coaching staff are yet to decide if they would stick with a five-man defence or revert back to a four-man defence for the Manchester United game due to the absence of the abovementioned Tuanzebe. He went on to praise the impact of Tuanzebe since signing on a season-long loan deal before this summer’s transfer window ended in August.
