On Thursday, November 10 at Old Trafford, when Manchester United plays Aston Villa in the third round of the Carabao Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo might get the start.

United will play Aston Villa for the second time in rapid succession on this occasion. The weekend before, they went to Villa Park in the Premier League and lost 3-1 to Unai Emery's team. 

In the defeat to Aston Villa, Cristiano Ronaldo started up front for Manchester United. He played the entire 90 minutes while leading the team. However, Ronaldo was unable to score for Erik ten Hag's team as they suffered their fourth league loss of the year.

Ronaldo might still start for the Red Devils in the Carabao Cup despite a lacklustre showing. Jadon Sancho and Antony might still be out for United as they both recuperate from their ailments.

But now that he is fully healthy again, Anthony Martial might play with Ronaldo, Marcus Rashford, or Alejandro Garnacho against Aston Villa.

In the Premier League, Cristiano Ronaldo has struggled to maintain a regular spot in the starting XI. So far this season, he has only made four league starts. However, the Portuguese forward has started each of his six UEFA Europa League group games.

Ronaldo should play against Aston Villa on Thursday since Erik ten Hag has frequently faced up against him in cup games.

When Manchester United takes on Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup, they'll want to get back to winning. The Red Devils were eliminated from the tournament last year after losing 1-0 to West Ham United at Old Trafford in the third round.
