MATCHDAY QUOTES

โ€œI thought we stuck in there and were always in the game until the third goal killed us.

โ€œBut it was encouraging. They have given me everything and left nothing on the pitch, but Manchester United were too good for us.

โ€œItโ€™s a massive game for us [QPR at home]. They got a win but weโ€™re hoping to have six points between us and them at the end of that match.โ€

Tim Sherwood, Saturday, 4 April 2015.

*Sky Sports*
Saturday, 4 April 2015

Ander Herrera scored twice as Manchester United saw off Aston Villa to move above rivals Manchester City - who dropped to fourth - with a 3-1 win at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Herreraโ€™s low finish gave United the lead just before half-time after a dominant opening 45 minutes and Wayne Rooneyโ€™s superb strike 11 minutes from time doubled their lead.

But though Christian Benteke provided a scare when he pulled one back within a minute of Rooneyโ€™s volley, Herrera grabbed his second of the match to seal victory in stoppage-time.

It was a sixth Premier League win in succession for United and puts more pressure on City, who take on Crystal Palace on Monday Night Football before a huge Manchester derby clash with United next weekend - also live on Sky Sports.

United began in confident mood and had a huge penalty appeal turned down inside five minutes as Marouane Fellaini met a long ball over the top and played in Rooney, who went down under Ciaran Clarkโ€™s challenge. The defender looked to have an arm around the United man but referee Roger East waved away the appeals, much to Rooneyโ€™s frustration.

Undeterred, United continued to dominate possession although clear-cut chances were not regularly forthcoming until the 23rd minute, when Marcos Rojoโ€™s 35-yard pile-driver was turned over by Brad Guzan.

Unitedโ€™s pressure eventually paid off just as the home fans were starting to become frustrated. On 43 minutes Daley Blindโ€™s low pass into the box was met by Herrera, who controlled with his right before firing past the Brad Guzan to give the hosts a deserved half-time lead.

*Hosts dominant*

It was a familiar pattern after the break as Villa continued to struggle to impose themselves on the game, Ashley Young missing a good chance to double Unitedโ€™s lead as he cut in from the left and curled a 20-yard effort inches wide of the far post.

Fellaini, who grew increasingly frustrated as the wide men regularly fell short with their delivery, then spurned a glorious chance, nodding a header into the ground which Guzan turned over the bar.

And it was not until the closing stages that the hosts finally breached the Villa defence once again. Substitute Angel Di Maria raced down the left and fired in a cross, which Rooney brought down with a sublime touch before swivelling and volleying a thunderous effort past Guzan.

It looked to be game over, but within 60 seconds Villa were back in it as Joe Coleโ€™s low corner was met by Benteke, whose shot drew a rare mistake from David De Gea as it squirmed under the United goalkeeper to give Tim Sherwoodโ€™s men a lifeline.

But there to be no comeback, and two minutes into stoppage time United secured the points. Rooney was quicker to a drop-ball than Benteke and he set Juan Mata away down the right. The Spaniard pulled it back to the edge of the box for Herrera, who swept an excellent low finish into the bottom corner.
