Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho will not be part of Manchester United squad for the FA Cup tie against Aston Villa on Monday.
Manchester United welcome Staven Gerard’s Aston Villa at Old Trafford in their FA third round tie on Monday with the hope of winning the competition for the first time since 2016.
Ronaldo, Sancho, Anthony Martial and Phil Jones, were not among the Manchester United players that arrived at the Hyatt Hotel on Monday afternoon in preparation for the game, according to the Manchester Evening News.
In their last home game, Manchester United were beaten 1-0 by Wolves after a wretched performance, and drew away to lowly Newcastle United a couple of fixtures previously.
It could be said that the Red Devils are resting Ronaldo and Sancho for their upcoming clashes in the Premier League and Champions League.
But Rangnick had recently said he is serious about winning the FA Cup.
