MATCH QUOTES

“We’ve been close (to winning) in the last couple of years that we’ve played here. People will look at and say it’s a big result but it was an even bigger performance. We deserved the win as well and we had the bigger chances. “I thought we were aggressive and brave against a front four of Ronaldo, Pogba, Fernandes and Greenwood and we stood resolute. “We wanted to be brave. We were too passive in that first half at times but we wanted to go down that right-hand side. We got on the front foot, we felt we could get down the sides with Ollie’s running and Danny Ings’ running and build up with our wing-backs. “What epitomised the performance and how brave it was was Matt Cash crossing for Matt Targett in the six-yard box and then putting it over. That just showed our attacking intent. . “I thought it was a very harsh penalty. I’m not sure where is is supposed to put his arms when it flashes across. For me, justice was done when he missed it. “We caused them problems from set pieces all game but the biggest thing for me is the bravery we showed coming here and going toe-to-toe with them.” Dean Smith.

MATCH REPORT

*BBC Sport*
Saturday, 25 September 2021

Bruno Fernandes missed a 93rd-minute penalty as Aston Villa won at Old Trafford for the first time in 12 years in a pulsating match. Kortney Hause had put Villa ahead with a powerful header two minutes from the end of normal time before the defender handled inside the box to present Manchester United with a lifeline. However, Fernandes blazed high over the bar in front of the Stretford End as United’s unbeaten start to the Premier League season came to an end. Having suffered an early Carabao Cup exit at the hands of West Ham, United have lost their past two home games without scoring. Villa missed two big chances before a dramatic finale. After Matt Targett blazed over inside the six-yard area, Ollie Watkins could only fire at David de Gea after the United keeper had passed straight to the Villa forward following Harry Maguire’s backpass. In a thrilling game, Ezri Konsa also headed another chance over after beating Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the air, while Watkins was denied by De Gea at full stretch in the second half. At the other end, Emiliano Martinez kept out Maguire’s header and Paul Pogba nodded wide when the France midfielder should have scored. When substitute Edinson Cavani’s header struck Hause’s arm deep into stoppage time, referee Mike Dean immediately pointed to the spot. Fernandes, however, ballooned his attempt high over Martinez’s crossbar leaving Villa to celebrate a famous win. It capped a bitterly frustrating day for United. They had 28 shots yet failed to find the net. It was also the first time Cristiano Ronaldo failed to score since re-signing. Solskjaer is expected to deliver trophies this season after a busy - and expensive - summer in the transfer market. Memorable win for Villa Villa arrived at Old Trafford seeking a first point on the road in the Premier League. They left celebrating a memorable victory after a highly impressive performance. Not since Gabriel Agbonlahor scored the winner in 2009 have Villa won at Old Trafford but Dean Smith’s side revelled in their surroundings as they carved out several clear-cut chances. Targett will wonder how on earth he missed from close range after a lovely move involving John McGinn and Matty Cash. With England boss Gareth Southgate watching from the directors’ box, Watkins will feel he should have done better after De Gea’s mistake before the United keeper denied Villa’s number 11 after half-time with a diving stop. Villa secured nine away wins on their way to finishing a respectable 11th last season. After back-to-back defeats on their travels, they are up and running on the road after a powerful headed finish by Hause, making his first league start of the season in place of Axel Tuanzebe, who was not eligible to face his parent club.
