  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! FERNANDES SCORES THROUGH A MARTINEZ CLANGER!!!!! 1-0 UNITED!!!!!! Fernandes lines up a strike from distance that travels through the crowd of players in the box and then the grasp of Martinez on the line. Telles knocks a short pass to the Portuguese, who presses towards the edge of the Villa box. He fires a tame strike that travels past Cavani, but should present a simple save for Martinez. However, the Villa keeper fumbles it through his legs and allows the goal. A great start for United.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! FERNANDES HAMMERS HOME A SECOND!!!!!! 2-0 UNITED!!!!!! Fernandes latches on to an offload from Fred and he blasts a right-footed strike into the roof of the net. Sanson sends a loose offload in the Villa midfield that Fred pounces on. He releases Fernandes, who takes a touch before burying his effort past a hapless Martinez. Clinical from the Portuguese.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! RAMSEY GETS ONE BACK FOR THE HOSTS!!!!! 2-1!!!!!! Villa are back in the game courtesy of a fine strike from Ramsey into the top-right corner. Chukwuemeka takes possession in the United box and works it towards Coutinho. He forces an offload in the direction of Ramsey with the aid of a deflection.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! COUTINHO LEVELS ON HIS DEBUT!!!!!!!! 2-2!!!!!!!! The Brazil international makes the perfect start to life at Villa Park with a simple finish from close range. United are cut open down the left flank as Buendia releases Ramsey into space. The midfielder does brilliantly as he cuts a fine ball across the face of goal to pick out Coutinho. The midfielder takes one touch before firing his second into the net from six yards. Can Villa snatch a late winner now?
