Manchester United vs Aston Villa
Aston Villa traveled to Manchester United on Sunday as they looked to build on their 2-0 win over Newcastle earlier this week.
Man United haven’t had the most emphatic start to the season but they have been a lot better at home this season.
Villa began the day within touching distance of the relegation zone but a win over the Red Devils could have seen them move up to 12th in the English top-flight.
As for Manchester United, they could have moved all the way up to 5th, should they have emerged with all three points.
However, things didn’t get off to a great start for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co as Jack Grealish fired Aston Villa in front with 11 minutes on the clock.
