Aston Villa vs Manchester United: The tale of the tape

Aston Villa created a lot of chances in the match as United’s defence looked error-prone. However, going into the final moments, their lead was only 1-0, and the Reds were pressing for an equalizer. That moment arrived in the 92nd minute when United were awarded a penalty due to a handball from Villa’s goalscorer, Kortney Hause.

Even though Cristiano Ronaldo was still on the pitch, Bruno Fernandes stepped up to take it and skied his effort over the bar. Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez engaged in his usual theatrics, and it seemed to work in the end. That seemed like justice for the Villa fans, who weren’t happy with the penalty being awarded in the first place.

However, the warning bells are ringing for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.

United have now lost three times in their last four matches and finally lost their undefeated record in the Premier League. They lost to BSC Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League in their first group stage match. However, it was the loss to West Ham in the Carabao Cup which was the worst loss out of the three.

In United’s quest for trophies, missing out on the Carabao Cup will hurt them. However, they are still in the running for the FA Cup, Premier League and UCL. Winning any of these will be a tough ask, especially considering United’s repeated slip-ups in recent years.
