The United goalkeeper was flattened in midweek by West Ham striker Andy Carroll during his side's 2-2 draw.

And on the eve of Villa's trip to Old Trafford, Guzan has told the young Spaniard that he could be in for another tough 90 minutes.

Guzan said: "Christian is a physical presence - with his height alone he is massive. We know that is one of his many strengths.

"For De Gea, it is about how here responds to the challenges he has to deal with.

"Christian is a handful with his ability in the air. He's so strong and always a force to be reckoned with."

Aston Villa go to the league leaders knowing that even a point could go a long way to securing their Premier League status for another season.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
