Aston Villa 3-1 Manchester United: Unai Emery era starts with a major win

Unai Emery’s first game back in the Premier League saw Aston Villa defeat Manchester United 3-1. While the visitors went into the game as the favourites, the solid start from the home team helped them earn all three points. 

With the win, they have moved into 13th place while Manchester United remain fifth in the table. Their next meeting will take place in their very next game, this Friday in the EFL Cup. 

Aston Villa shock Manchester United to start new era 

Leon Bailey opened the scoring for the home team, finishing from a tight angle after being played in by Jacob Ramsey. And in the 11th minute, Lucas Digne scored his first goal for Aston Villa in the form of a perfectly placed free-kick to double their lead early in the game. 

The only goal for Manchester United came in the form of an own goal. A shot taken by Luke Shaw took a massive deflection off of Jacob Ramsey, and ended up in the back of the net with Emi Martinez being able to do nothing about it.

Ramsey would make up for it later with a well placed goal, ending up in the top corner, to make it 3-1 in their favour.
