Aston Villa entertained Manchester United at Villa Park earlier today as they focused on securing a victory at home in the Premier League. The Villans made a quick start to the game and scored the opening goal in the seventh minute via Leon Bailey’s impressive finish. Lucas Digne doubled Aston Villa’s advantage just four minutes with a world-class freekick. However, Man United responded in the dying embers of the first half when Jacob Ramsey scored an unfortunate own goal. The West Midlands club went into the half-time break 2-1 up on the scoreline.

Jacob Ramsey made up for his own goal by scoring with an excellent finish in the 49th minute. Erik ten Hag’s side failed to come up with a response as the contest finished 3-1 in favour of the Villans.

Let’s take a look at how each Aston Villa fared during the clash against the Red Devils.

GK: Emiliano Martinez – 6.5/10

The Argentine keeper made a couple of solid saves but failed to keep a clean sheet today.

RB: Matty Cash – 6.5/10

Cash earned the ball back a few times but lacked quality in the Man United half.

CB: Ezri Konsa – 6.5/10

Konsa cleared the danger when needed and kept a solid defensive shape at the back.

CB: Tyrone Mings – 7/10

The English centre-half was a rock at the back for most of the game and did well to restrict the opposition to just one goal.

He added more energy to Unai Emery’s midfield.
