Aston Villa entertained Manchester United at Villa Park earlier this evening as they hoped to secure a result at home. The Villans made a poor start to the game as they shipped in the opening goal in the sixth minute when Bruno Fernandes scored after a mistake from Emiliano Martinez. The West Midlands outfit failed to come up with a response and went into the half-time break 1-0 down on the scoreline.

Fernandes managed to double Man United’s lead in the 67th minute with a powerful finish. However, the Villans refused to give up without a fight and got themselves level via a goal each from Jacob Ramsey and Philippe Coutinho. The match finished with Steven Gerrard’s men earning a 2-2 draw in front of their home supporters.

Let’s take a look at how each Aston Villa player performed during the match against the Red Devils.

GK: Emiliano Martinez – 6/10

The Argentine custodian made a terrible error to gift Man United the opening goal. However, he recovered well and produced a solid display in the second half.

RB: Matty Cash – 7/10

Cash didn’t put a foot wrong in the game when defending inside his half. He also made two promising runs with the ball down the right flank.

CB: Ezri Konsa – 6/10

He found life difficult in the first half and got replaced at half-time.

CB: Tyrone Mings – 6.5/10

Mings was good on the ball and even made some crucial defensive contributions.

He earned possession back a few times but gave away the ball which led to Fernandes’ second goal.

CM: Douglas Luiz – 7/10

The Brazilian sensation anchored the midfield with conviction and engineered a couple of decent chances in the final third.

He was not shy of having a strike on-target but failed to threaten the Man United goal.

ST: Danny Ings – 6/10

Ings struggled to get into the game and got substituted in the 75th minute.

LW: Emiliano Buendia – 8/10

He worked hard defensively and set up a string of dangerous opportunities for his teammates to score.


CB: Kortney Hause – 6/10

He didn’t do much wrong in the game.

LW: Philippe Coutinho – 7/10
