McTominay climbs off the bench to make it three in a row after Hojlund goal

Aston Villa 1-1 Man Utd

82. A lull in the stadium? Yes. A lull on the pitch? Most definitely. A lull on the touchline? You must be joking.

Unai Emery is going crazy down there, screaming, jumping and pulling the kind of shapes Mr Motivator would be proud of.

The Premier League is undoubtedly a better place with the Spaniard in it.

80. Garnacho sets off another mazy run infield from the left.

We knows he’s to good for Cash, but he also accelerates past Tielemans to provide himself room to shoot.

It ends in disappointment though as he fails to get any power in his strike with the ball instead trundling through to his compatriot Martinez.

78. As we approach the final ten, there’s the consensus that both sides have settled for the point on offer – which kind of makes a mockery of Erik ten Hag calling the contest a must-win.

Still, United have been really rocked by the need to replace the injured Luke Shaw at the break.

76. Casemiro spots his chance to grab the glory as he takes down a loose ball from 30 yards from goal.

The touch is good, the push forward is better, the resulting shot? Meh, not so much.

The view from Villa Park

There was a surprise change at half-time for United as Erik ten Hag replaced Luke Shaw with Victor Lindelof at left back.

It can only be assumed Shaw has an injury because Leon Bailey went on to create United headaches down the left.

But when Villa threaten it’s down the right as Matty Cash flashes in a cross which is met by Ollie Watkins.

However the striker’s shot crashes off Onana’s chest from point blank range.

If you can’t be good be lucky!

Matty Cash is the third player to be booked when he brings down Rashford.

Villa are now well on top and Emery brings on striker Moussa Diaby for holding midfielder Boubacar Kamara.

The pay off is almost instant as Douglas Luiz strikes to draw Villa level after 67 minutes.

Leon Bailey’s corner is fired goalwards by Lenglet and although Onana saves the ball breaks back to Bailey.

He picks out Douglas Luiz and the Brazilian beats Onana from close range.

Game on!
