Manchester United fight back in 3-1 win at Aston Villa

BIRMINGHAM: Manchester United recovered to beat Aston Villa 3-1 away in the Premier League on Sunday (May 9) as Bruno Fernandes, Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani scored in the second half to put on hold the title celebrations of champions-elect Manchester City.

The result left United second on 70 points from 34 games, 10 behind City who have played a game more and missed a chance to secure the title on Saturday after they suffered a 2-1 home defeat by Chelsea.

It also stretched United’s unbeaten away league run to 25 games but came at a cost as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed captain Harry Maguire may be ruled out of the Europa League final against Spanish side Villarreal on May 26.

“It might be a few weeks or a month, we don’t know,” Solskjaer was quoted as saying by United’s official website.

“It looked like the boy (Anwar El Ghazi) landed on him and he twisted his ankle. I don’t know how serious it is. He might be available on Tuesday (against Leicester City), he might not.”

United dominated the early stages and United full back Luke Shaw forced a good save from Emiliano Martinez before Bertrand Traore fired the hosts ahead out of the blue in the 24th minute.
