Football match highlight Manchester United Vs Aston Villa: 


Despite Ole Gun’nar Sols’kjaer’s predictable line-up, not’hing could sway the cracking atmo’sphere at Old Trafford. The fan’s were out in numbers agai’n, eager to get to see Cristiano Rona’ldo, an’d there was a sense of excite’ment every time he touched the ball.


Unfortun’ately, the after’noon didn’t go the way Rona’ldo – or the fans – had hoped. The Portuguese ace had a very quiet ‘match upfront. Aston Villa’s valiant backline kept CR’7 isolated and afforded Unite’d’s attackers very few opportun”ities to break the deadlock.


Just like at Chelsea mid’week, Dean Smith’s side hel”d their o’wn at Old Trafford. Unite’d may have dominated poss’ession, number of shots and passe’s, but it was Villa who had the better chances. They looked danger’ous on the counter and shou’ld have taken a 16th-minute lead, on’ly for Matty Cash to send his sho’t over the cro’ssbar from over fou’r yar’ds out.


In the end, Unit’ed had Dav’id de Gea to thank after the Sp’aniard cleared a strai’ght shot from Ollie Watkins. It kept t’he scor’eline goalless for the brea’k. He den”ied the striker agai’n later on, while Ezri Konsa head”ed a chan’ce for Villa over.
It was a simi’lar tone in th’e second half, wher’e United simply couldn’t find a way past Villa.’ The fa’ns chanted’ ‘Bring’ on Cava’ni’ at Stretford End and’ got their wish. In search of a win’ner, Solskjaer replac’ed Sco’tt McTomi’nay with the forme’r PSG strike’r.


But whil’e the match rema”ined an action-pack’ed affa’ir, it was Villa’ who took the initia’tive. The Lions push’ed and’ a gr’eat header from Hause gav’e the’m an unexpected lead in the 88th-minu’te.


Then, to ad’d insu’lt to inju’ry, Bruno Fernand’es took an awful penalt’y’ after Hau’se handled the ball inside his own ‘box. The Portuguese, who got t’he nod over compatriot Ronald’o, saw his shot fly over the bar.
That miss prett’y mu’ch summed the day for Unit’ed as t’hey crashed to a 1-0 defeat’ and a first in the Premier League this s’eason. The Red Devils slip dow’n to fourth in the league tabl’e, while’ Villa move up to sevent’h.
