ASTON VILLA 2 - MAN UTD 2

A fantastic game ends level at Villa Park.

VAN DE BEEK ALMOST WINS IT

He twists, turns and then shoots. It's just blocked. That would have been heartbreaking for Villa fans.

Under pressure from Varane, another chance goes begging for Villa.

COUTINHO AND INGS GET IN EACH OTHERS WAY

With the former poised to shoot, the latter gets in his way and denies him a dream start.

71' 

COUTINHO'S CORNER IS POOR

Still warming up clearly, but Coutinho's corner can't beat the first man. The crowd stop shouting his name. Understandably.

ASTON VILLA 0 - MAN UTD 2: FERNANDES SMASHES HOME

That accidental stamp has riled Fernandes. A piece of quick thinking from Fred wins the ball back and he slips in Fernandes. The finish is emphatic, smashed off the bar, into the turf, and into the roof of the net.

65' 

A CERTAIN BRAZILIAN READIES HIMSELF

New man Philippe Coutinho is slipping in his shin pads.

64' 

FERNANDES DOWN AGAIN

Luiz accidentally stands on the downed Fernandes. It looks painful. But it does look accidental. We can hope.

63' 

CASH ALMOST TEES UP INGS

Lovely movement from Villa as Cash pulls one across the face of goal. Ings is just squeezed out.

61' 

RAMSEY TOPPLED ON THE EDGE OF THE BOX

It looks a certain foul but Man Utd avoid punishment.

60' 

GREENWOOD'S PACE THREATENS

He breaks down the United right but drills his shot just wide.

59' 

CASH GIVEAWAY

Cash loses the ball on the edge of the area and Elanga skips into the box for United. His shot is wild and left of the upright. His performance has deserved a goal but his shooting hasn't.

58' 

GREENWOOD SHOOTS

It's poor, but the first piece of attacking player the visitors have mustered this half.

56' 

DIGNE SHOOTS

The angle narrowing all the time, Digne takes the ball away from goal and smashes one into the side netting.

55' 

DIGNE AND BUENDIA LINK UP

It's a great move as Digne cuts back and picks out Buendia. His shot is straight down the throat of a grateful De Gea.

Pressure starting to show as the United keeper punts out of play.

53' 

MAN UTD GET ON THE BALL

For the first time in this second half, United get on the ball. They have not been given a second to settle.

50' 

DIGNE CROSS DENIED

Lucas Digne has time to flight his cross. It's just cut out by Lindelof. Fernandes is down, and looks miffed.

48' 

DE GEA AGAIN DENIES RAMSEY

Jacob Ramsey forces a save from De Gea who got down well. Villa starting this half much the brighter.

47' 

ELANGA TESTS MARTINEZ

It looks comfortable for the keeper, who has had to be sharp after Elanga's low shot.

MARTINEZ' MADNESS THE DIFFERENCE

Villa's goalkeeping blunder still the only goal of the game.

45'+3 

ELANGA SHOOTS

Elanga looks to close the half with a bang. His shot from range is deflected behind.

44' 

KONSA DOWN AGAIN

After his run in with Elanga, Konsa goes down again. He looks unlikely to continue.

42' 

DIGNE FIRES AT DE GEA

What a welcome that would have been. Digne fires at De Gea on the volley with the goal beckoning. It was good movement from the left back and an even better save.

41' 

ELANGA GETS SOME RETRIBUTION

Konsa gets a whack on the backside. He should be fine.

40' 

ELANGA DRAWS THE FOUL AGAIN

Cash lucky not to see yellow.

39' 

VILLA OVERWORK AND WASTE A CHANCE

Danny Ings tries the dummy to allow Luiz to shoot. But the ball stops short and the onrushing Luiz is penalised for arriving late.

37' 

VILLA GROWING IN CONFIDENCE

Going close has ignited the home side. They have forced United back into their own half. Sanson just overhits a ball that would have put Cash in.

35' 

WHAT A SAVE

Beundia almost levels for Villa but De Gea is equal to it. It was a wonderfully worked corner that saw the Villa man run across the face of the keeper and plant a header that is just kept out.

31' 

WATKINS SHOOTS AT DE GEA

It was telegraphed, and a tame effort from Ollie Watkins is straight at De Gea. Fernandes tests Martinez at the other end.

Questions about his defensive capabilities rise again. That was a poor challenge on the edge of the box to concede the yellow card.

DIGNE PROVIDING WIDTH

The new signing takes the chance to cross and smashes Dalot in the face. Good defending with his mouth there.

22' 

ELANGA GOES DOWN... NO PENALTY

VAR is checking, however. Check complete. It would have been soft.

22' 

KONSA CAN'T BEAT THE FIRST MAN

A rare chance to cross for Villa is cut out by Varane.

20' 

GREAT RUN FROM GREENWOOD

Greenwood bursts forward to ignite Man Utd. Nothing comes of it, but it was nice to see.

19' 

CAVANI HOBBLES OFF

He looks in some pain.

18' 

MARTINEZ REDEEMS HIMSELF

A wonderful ball from Telles bobbles off Cavani and finds Greenwood. Martinez is off his line so quickly to smother the shot brilliantly. If only he had thought to do that for the goal.

17'  

GERRARD SQUIRMING ON THE TOUCH LINE

The Villa manager is putting in more of a shift than most of his players. They look static.

15' 

MINGS PINGS IT OUT

Under no pressure, Tyrone Mings plays one out of play. Villa look rattled by the early mistake.

11' 

ELANGA ALMOST MAKES IT TWO

Arriving late at the back post, Elanga should do better with his header. But it's gobbled up by the blushing Martinez.

9' 

VILLA LOOK TO MAKE THE POST OF SOME RARE POSSESSION

Forcing the issue, it's all charging runs from Villa. They need to find a little composure here.

8' 

ELANGA LINKS WITH TELLES

The goal, and all the play, has come from this left hand side. The 19-year-old Elanga looks sharp.

6' 

EMI MARTINEZ IS SHRINKING

Usually such a safe pair of gloves, Martinez is trying to hide in the grass around his penalty area after that mistake.

17:00 

30 MINUTES TO GO

Just half an hour to go until kick-off here at Villa Park.

17:00 

VILLA LOOK TO MEET THEIR MANAGER’S STANDARDS

Villa have lost four of their last five games in all competitions, including three in the league to Liverpool, Chelsea and, most worryingly, Brentford after a quick start under Gerrard.

The new manager has set a marker with his new signings, and is demanding more intensity on the pitch. His squad will have to step up to his challenge, and levels, if he is to be a success.

16:55 

INCONSISTENT UNITED STRUGGLE ON

Depite the clear issues with consistency and motivation at the club, Man Utd have only lost once in 10 games under Ralf Rangnick. They managed the malaise on Monday to hang on to the win by a single goal when they deserved to lose.

Too many players are having dodgy seasons and cracks are starting to show in the squad. Rashford has looked out of sorts for weeks and discussions about ‘mentality’ permeate almost every interview. Rangnick demands tactical consistency and sharpness above all else and, with so many distractions, it is hard to see where it will come from.

16:53 

ASTON VILLA WELCOME NEW SIGNINGS

Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard has added some high-grade options to his squad. Lucas Digne, who starts, arrives from Everton as one of the league's most expressive full-backs and was a snip at £25m. Philippe Coutinho’s arrival is intriguing too. If he captures the form he had playing alongside Gerrard at Liverpool, his loan from Barcelona will be something of a coup.

Gerrard has already pushed the standards a Villa, and will be desperate to mark how far his team have come with a statement against Man Utd.
