Solskjaer on Utd keeper battle and Villa

Manchester United suffered a second home defeat in four days this afternoon, as their 1-0 Carabao Cup loss to West Ham on Wednesday was followed by a 1-0 Premier League loss to Aston Villa.

Man United entered the fixture at Old Trafford with 13 points, as many as joint-leaders Liverpool and Chelsea and only trailing those teams on goal difference. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side stuttered here, however, with a dramatic game ending in dramatic fashion. After numerous chances for both teams, Kortney Hause finally converted for Villa in the 88th minute, heading home a goal for the visitors.

Just moments later, the defender gave away a penalty, with a handball awarded against him. Bruno Fernandes stepped up to the spot in added time, but the midfielder blazed his effort well over the crossbar to ensure Dean Smith’s players emerged victorious at Old Trafford.

United’s penalty came just one day after Solskjaer had complained about the lack of spot-kicks awarded to his team. The United coach seemed to blame those refereeing decisions on comments made by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp last season. Meanwhile, champions Man City edged Chelsea 1-0 in the Premier League’s other early kick-off, to shake up the title race.

Re-live the action below.

GOAL! Manchester United 0-1 Aston Villa (HAUSE 88')

Unbelievable! Villa take the lead at the death!

It comes from a corner as Hause beats Cavani at the near post to flick the ball past De Gea!

You have to say, it’s fully deserved.

84 mins: Lindelof needlessly concedes a corner and heading behind from a Villa cross while under no pressure.

Relief for the centre back, however, after Ronaldo heads clear at the back post and Ramsey shoots over.

Ramsey is then replaced by 19-year-old striker Cameron Archer, who has scored four goals for Villa this season in the cup.

83 mins: Greenwood has been at the heart of everything positive United have produced, and he sets up Fernandes for a back-post header but the Portuguese can’t get his effort across goal and it’s comfortably saved by Martinez.

80 mins: Another big chance for Villa! McGinn does brilliantly to go around the outside of the United defence before pulling it across to Buendia. The playmaker takes it a touch before slipping it to his left, where Ramsey is waiting. But the youngster slips at the crucial moment, just as he was lining up his shot. To make matters worse, Ramsey also looks to be injured.

Cavani is on for the final stages as he replaces McTominay. Pogba has moved into midfield.

Manchester United 0-0 Aston Villa

78 mins: Cash cuts inside Dalot and is fouled by the full-back in the corner to give Villa a free kick in a promising position.

McGinn aims it towards the near post but Varane smashes it clear.

76 mins: A smart turn from McGinn draws a foul from Fred, who is booked.

Buendia then comes on for Villa, replacing Ings, while United are preparing Cavani.

75 mins: That's good from Pogba. The midfielder drives into the Pogba and cuts onto this right, but can’t beat Martinez with his shot.

72 mins: Now Targett is down. The Villa left back was substituted with an injury last week against Everton. Dean Smith has yet to make a change while for United, Cavani continues to warm up on the sidelines.

70 mins: Pogba shoots wide after working an opportunity inside the box, before Greenwood is blocked by Hause and then Mings as United increase the pressure.

68 mins: Brilliant from Villa! Luiz wins the ball back on the edge and is then released after a flick from Ings. The ball is sprayed out wide to Watkins, who ducks inside Varane and fires a strong shot at De Gea, who saves.

United go down the other end as Greenwood is played in on goal, but Villa recover well and Greenwood is eventually crowded out before dragging a shot wide.
