Aston Villa picked up a valuable point on Sunday afternoon thanks to a 2-2 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Villa were much the better team in the opening stages, which was mostly down to the brilliant Jack Grealish. He was running the show in the midfield and the only way United could stop him was to bring him down.

With 11 minutes on the clock, Grealish picked up a cross from Anwar El Ghazi, shifted the ball onto his right foot, and curled the ball past David De Gea to give his side a deserved lead.

United were not offering much in attack, but they were gifted a way back into the match with half-time just a couple of minutes away. Tyrone Mings was too casual on the ball and had to be bailed out by Tom Heaton. However, from the resulting corner, Marcus Rashford’s header hit the post and then bounced in off the back of Heaton.

United improved in the second half, but Villa still looked like they had goals in them. They should have taken a 2-1 lead, but Grealish stabbed the ball wide from about 6 yards out. Within about thirty seconds, Victor Lindelof had headed the ball into Villa’s net.

Villa didn’t let this get them down and they were level two minutes later when Mings volleyed home after the United defence all stopped because they thought he was in an offside position.

Both teams pushed for the goal that would win them the match, but neither managed to find it.
