Aston Villa 2 – 3 Man Utd
Credit to Aston Villa and Andreas Weimann for putting United to the sword for a two goal lead, but there’s only one man vying for the Man of the Match award here this week.
Sir Alex sent on Javier Hernandez at half time and the elusive Mexican forward inspired the visitors to the type of comeback that has become synonymous with the Red Devils in recent times.
Chicarito came had four shots, three of which resulted in goals, but he was robbed of the match ball when the equaliser was chalked down as a Ron Vlaar own goal.
Hernandez also achieved a 100% passing accuracy in a performance that had ‘played himself into next week’s team’, according to Ferguson, who now has the predicament of extending the forward’s role from that of an impact substitute.
