Bruno Fernandes, unfortunately, missed last minutes penalty as Aston Villa won 1-0 for the first time in 12 years at Old Trafford as Kortney Hause put Villa ahead with a powerful header two minutes before the end of normal time.
But the defender caused a penalty inside the box, giving Manchester United a lifeline, Fernandes, however, blazed high over the bar in front of the Stretford End, ending United’s unbeaten start to the Premier League season.
Following an early exit from the Carabao Cup at the hands of West Ham, United have lost their last two home games without scoring. Aston Villa blew two big chances before a thrilling finish.
Ollie Watkins could only fire at David de Gea after Matt Targett blazed over inside the six-yard box after the United keeper had passed straight to the Villa forward following Harry Maguire’s backpass.
In a thrilling game, Ezra Konsa headed over another chance after beating Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the air, and Watkins was denied by De Gea at full stretch in the second half.
Emiliano Martinez saved Maguire’s header at the other end, and Paul Pogba nodded wide when the France midfielder should have scored.
