Action and reaction - Villa away

Sunday 09 May 2021 17:34

Manchester United scored three second-half goals to beat Aston Villa away from home in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Bruno Fernandes equalised for United soon after the restart, sending Emiliano Martinez the wrong way from the penalty spot after Paul Pogba had been fouled by Douglas Luiz. United's belief and confidence showed as Mason Greenwood scored just four minutes later.

It required some serious defensive effort to maintain that lead, a challenge made more difficult by injury to skipper Harry Maguire, but Edinson Cavani sealed the victory with a late header off the bench.
