MATCH SUMMARY

Having delivered a thirteen game unbeaten run, winning nine, between 7 December and 7 February, Villa have now lost four consecutive games and five in six in the Premier League since the first leg of the controversial UEFA Cup tie with CSKA. Yet this was far from a regulation defeat as Villa, in the ascendancy throughout, were undone by a freak injury time strike.

KEY MAN

Gabby Agbonlahor puts Villa ahead before a freak injury time goal sinks Villa for the fourth successive Premier League game, Sunday, 5 April 2009.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œII thought we were absolutely brilliant. We conceded an early goal but fought back to get ourselves in front. โ€œI do not think we deserved to lose the game. โ€œWe will gain confidence from this performance. That might sound crazy because we are in the results business - but we were terrific today. โ€œWe should have got something from the game and I actually think we should have won it. โ€œThe defeat is a bitter pill to swallow because we came to Old Trafford and played so well. We took the game to them and I am very proud of my players. โ€œWe will have to take this on the chin but we can definitely come back from this.โ€ Martin O'Neill.
