MATCH SUMMARY

Villa secure victory over Manchester United as Didier Six makes a promising debut to send Villa back to 10th in the table but all is not well behind the scenes as Graham Turner falls out with another player, Steve Foster, having already told League and European Cup winners Des Bremner and Dennis Mortimer that they can no longer perform in the first division.

ON THIS DAY

Graham Turner's Villa return from shipping three goals without replay in the last match to dish out the same treatment to 4th placed Manchester United. As a result Villa make it four wins in nine League games, whilst losing four.

Didier Six made his Villa debut aged 30 after joining from French club Mulhouse FC in September.

Meanwhile, the number of transfer requests from players disillusioned with life under Ellis and Turner reaches epic proportions.
