Manchester United defeated Aston Villa 2 goals to 1 last season at Old Trafford when Anthony Martial and Bruno Fernandes were on the scoresheet.
It was a riveting start as Manchester United’s first goal of 2021 was scored by Anthony Martial when he opened the scoring with a low, guided header five minutes before a breath-taking half came to an end.
Villa’s standing as one of the most improved sides in the Premier League last season was obvious as they fought back to level terms on 58 minutes, through Bertrand Traore.
However, the equaliser didn’t deflate the buoyant Reds who re-took the lead three minutes later with Bruno Fernandes making it 2-1 from the penalty spot.
Let’s take a look back on last season’s Premier League clash with Aston Villa at Old Trafford, as goals from Anthony Martial and Bruno Fernandes gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side a vital win over Villa.
