Manchester United 2-2 Aston Villa: reds miss chance to go fifth - Premier League, manchester united, Aston Villa

Manchester United were held to a standstill again, this time by Aston Villa. As the red devils missed an important opportunity to jump to fifth on the Premier League table.

United were still without the services of Scott Mctominay and Paul Pogba, as Fred started alongside Andreas Pereira and Juan Mata for the game at Old Trafford.

The red devils were on the front door, applying most of the pressure. But went a goal down, as Grealish let out a fine curl from the left side of the box to stun David De Gea and hosts.

Manchester United will go level through Marcus Rashford, who made amends for a massive mistake earlier on. To ensure they did not finish the first half on the back foot.

The red devils took the lead 19 minutes into the second half, Victor Lindelof meeting a deflected cross to head nicely beyond a helpless Aston Villa goalkeeper.

However, Manchester United would not rejoice for long, as Villa struck back just minutes after Lindelof had given them the lead. Mings the goal scorer, finishing with a superb volley to keep the match at a two-all draw.

Aston Villa will leave Old Trafford with a pat on the back. But for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United? It’s been once again a bad day, as they miss another golden opportunity to leap to fifth on the Premier League table.
