MATCH QUOTES

"Owing to the strong team that Aston Villa possess it was thought that the โ€œVillansโ€ would prove the winners, but to the general surprise of the followers the โ€œVillainsโ€ and the intense delight of the โ€œBladesโ€, the United proved the victors of a most sensational game by two goals to one."
