MATCHDAY QUOTES

โ€I thought 4-1 was harsh on us. We started the game great and scored a really good goal and we were looking pretty good.

โ€œBut then we conceded a pretty poor first goal and it was a clear penalty to United, no arguments about that.

โ€œJust after the restart we had two incredible chances to peg it back and you have got to take chances like that.

โ€œThat is no criticism of Christian Benteke because he has scored vital goals for us and he will continue to do so but, on another day, we score a couple of goals and it becomes a different game.โ€

Paul Lambert, Saturday, 29 March 2014.

*BBC Sport*
Saturday, 29 March 2014

*Wayne Rooney scored twice as Manchester United fought back to beat Aston Villa after a fly-by protest by fans calling for manager David Moyes to be sacked.*

A plane carrying an anti-Moyes banner was booed by some home fans as it flew over Old Trafford in the second minute.

Ashley Westwoodโ€™s curling free-kick put Villa ahead but Rooney quickly headed United level, then scored from the spot after Leandro Bacuna fouled Juan Mata.

Mata slotted home a third before Javier Hernandez made it 4-1 in injury time.

Villa striker Christian Benteke missed two good second-half chances but, crucially for their under-pressure manager, United were convincing winners and Moyes enjoyed a very public show of support.

The aerial message organised by disgruntled United fans read โ€œWrong One - Moyes Outโ€, but it was not well received by supporters inside the ground when it appeared overhead.

Just as significant was the reaction to Moyes emerging from the tunnel ahead of kick-off - before his players, unusually - with applause from all four sides of Old Trafford greeting his arrival.

That backing could easily have wavered when Westwood expertly bent a free-kick over the United wall and beyond a diving David De Gea in the 13th minute.

But the United fans continued to sing Moyesโ€™s name and saw their side level seven minutes later when Rooney expertly steered Shinji Kagawaโ€™s cross into the corner of the net.

The home side improved as the game went on, and took the lead just before half-time when Kagawaโ€™s pass, intended for Rooney, ran through to Mata inside the box. He turned inside Bacuna but was sent tumbling as the Villa defender dived in, and Rooney made no mistake from the spot.

Villa had their chances, with Benteke mis-kicking in front of goal from Westwoodโ€™s cross and then heading over from a Marc Albrighton delivery.

Those misses were punished just before the hour when Marouane Fellaini helped the ball into Mataโ€™s path inside the box and the Spanish playmaker fired home his first goal since joining United for ยฃ37m in January.

By now the hosts were finding plenty of space in and around the Villa area, but there were still some gaps in their defence too.

Benteke should have done better when he beat the offside trap to meet Ciaran Clarkโ€™s ball into the box, but he failed to make a proper connection.

Bayern Munich, who visit Old Trafford in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday, are unlikely to be so wasteful, but this time Unitedโ€™s defensive lapses never threatened to spoil their victory.

Hernandez converted Adnan Januzajโ€™s inviting cross to make it 4-1 in stoppage time and, at the final whistle, Moyes left the arena in the same way he had arrived - to loud applause.
