Manchester United miss penalty as Aston Villa record win

Manchester United missed an opportunity to top the league going down against Aston Villa in one of the early kick offs of the day.

The only goal for Aston Villa was netted by Hause whose header was impossible for De Gea to punch out as he made it difficult for Cavani to mark him two minutes to time.

Bruno Fernandes blew off an open opportunity to level things five minutes when Hause’s hand caught the ball as he defended an attack from Manchester United led by Cavani.

The Portugese forward sent the ball way up high to end the club’s unbeaten run and hand Aston Villa their first win at Old Trafford after 12 years.

Both sides started slow as the Red Devils gave out possession easily missing out important chances to produce a string attack. Greenwood wasted crucial chances to pass the ball but instead opted to go solo.

The same trend continued but it changed whenever Paul Pogba or Fernandes picked the ball as they looked for Cristiano Ronaldo who was unlucky in the afternoon. His best opportunity in the clash went wide despite having all the time to change the results.

Luke Shaw came off the itch in the first half after picking up and injury and was replaced by Dalot. Harry Maguire also picked a muscle injury but decided to continue.

The visitors produced an impressive performance blocking attempts by the host to shoot as Martinez made a superb block to deny Greenwood come the second half of the clash.

Manchester United now sit in fourth position with 13 points equal to Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea. Liverpool may take the lead to 16 if they beat Brentford at night.
