  • ASTON VILLA 0-1 MAN UTD

    42. As the clock ticks towards half-time, here is how United won that penalty and went in front.

    It was certainly clever from Fernandes but Villa will feel the decision was harsh…

  • ASTON VILLA 0-1 MAN UTD

    39. Wan-Bissaka picks up the first yellow card of the match.

    Samatta gets a toe to the ball but is running towards his own goal 40 yards out…

    The young right-back dives in though and catches the Tanzanian.

  • ASTON VILLA 0-1 MAN UTD

    37. United want another penalty but Moss waves it away.

    Rashford is the one who goes down after a nudge from Douglas Luiz.

    The fall is somewhat overelaborate to say the least…

    At the other end, McGinn – who appears to have shaken off his knock – attempts a drive from distance but it is blocked.

  • ASTON VILLA 0-1 MAN UTD

    36. Ooof. Almost another for Greenwood.

    Matic slips it through and he picks it up in the No10 on the half-turn.

    He wriggles goalwards and gets a shot away early with his left peg – but doesn't catch as cleanly as he would have liked.

    Again, Reina gets down to save.

  • ASTON VILLA 0-1 MAN UTD

    34. Maguire heads out powerfully before Pogba picks up the loose ball and shimmies past one before setting Greenwood away down the right.

    He plays it back across and Martial cuts in off the left and gets a shot away.

    But it is tame and low and comfortable for Reina.

    But Konsa cannot let Martial just come inside like that… did he not see what happened on Saturday?

  • ASTON VILLA 0-1 MAN UTD

    32. Dean Smith has clearly just seen the replay of the penalty incident.

    It is fair to say he isn't best pleased…

    “JON, HOW IS THAT A PEN?” if my lip-reading is accurate.

  • ASTON VILLA 0-1 MAN UTD

    31. Pogba tries to thread one through the lines and Shaw looks to be chasing it down before slightly hesitating and it runs out of play.

    And this could be bad news for Aston Villa…

    John McGinn is down and looks to be struggling.

  • ASTON VILLA 0-1 MAN UTD

    28. Konsa is still moaning to the ref.

    He is adamant that was not a foul.

    It looked as though he was trying to block a potential shot and then Fernandes' momentum took him into the defender.

    But with Moss originally giving the foul, there was not enough in it to be deemed a “clear and obvious error” so the decision was not overturned.

  • 27. Fernandes has his seventh Premier League goal in just his 11th appearance.

    The playmaker wraps it into the bottom left corner, with Reina going the other way.

    For all the Villa pressure, it is United who lead.

    ASTON VILLA 0-1 MAN UTD

  • GOOOOAAAALLLL!!!

    FERNANDES STICKS IT AWAY!!

  • ASTON VILLA 0-0 MAN UTD

    26. PENALTY TO UNITED!

    Bruno Fernandes is fouled…

    He does really well to stop the ball dead and spins on the edge of the area and Konsa comes through him.

    Moss points to the spot and VAR Scott agrees.

    Fernandes will step up…

  • ASTON VILLA 0-0 MAN UTD

    25. Villa hit the post!

    Pogba is put under pressure by Trezeguet with his face to his own goal…

    There is no foul and Trezeguet drives at goal… he has options both sides….

    But he takes the shot with the instep early and strikes the bottom of the post!

  • ASTON VILLA 0-0 MAN UTD

    24. It does feel like refs are on to the managers taking advantage of the chance to get some tactics across.

    That break barely lasted a minute before Reina gets play underway again…

  • ASTON VILLA 0-0 MAN UTD

    23. We've played half of the first half…

    So time for a drinks break.

  • ASTON VILLA 0-0 MAN UTD

    22. One man who has been uncharacteristically quiet so far is Bruno Fernandes.

    The Portuguese has six goals and five assists in ten Premier League appearances.

    But nothing of note so far today, other than that foul to give Villa a chance to shoot.

    He tries a chip into Martial but there is a breakdown in communication, there.

  • ASTON VILLA 0-0 MAN UTD

    20. Seconds later another Konsa delivery causes problems for Wan-Bissaka as he just about gets a touch on it to put Trezeguet off.

    Here are some of the best of the snaps so far…

  • ASTON VILLA 0-0 MAN UTD

    18. Huge chance for Villa to go in front!

    A wonderful cross from the right again from Konsa who picks out Grealish at the back stick.

    Wan-Bissaka is completely lost and the Villa skipper is unmarked…

    But there is too much ankle on the first-time volley and it goes just over the top.

  • ASTON VILLA 0-0 MAN UTD

    16. A good spell of pressure from Villa, here, as they keep the ball in United's half.

    McGinn is at the centre of it, pulling the strings from deep, while Grealish roams.

    A deep cross comes in and Douglas Luiz gets up to head into the back of Wan-Bissaka and win a corner…

    But De Gea punches clear.

  • ASTON VILLA 0-0 MAN UTD

    12. Mings gets away with one – that could have been embarrassing!

    Pogba puts in a low cross and the England defender lazily tries to control the ball but must take his eye off it.

    It bounces off his studs, bounces down and ricocheted off his behind before Hause is across to sweep up the mess.

    Whoops.

  • ASTON VILLA 0-0 MAN UTD

    10. Villa win another free-kick, this time wider and deeper.

    Grealish whips this one in but it is too low and Rashford nicks in front of Samatta to…

  • ASTON VILLA 0-0 MAN UTD

    9. The big United wall – featuring Pogba and Matic – does its job.

    Luiz is the one who takes it but crashes it into the United blockade.

  • ASTON VILLA 0-0 MAN UTD

    8. Oooh, early chance for Villa?

    Matic is dispossessed in a dangerous area and Bruno Fernandes takes no risks and makes the foul.

    Villa have a free-kick 25 yards out, right of centre.

    Douglas Luiz and McGinn over it…

  • ASTON VILLA 0-0 MAN UTD

    7. A nicely-clipped ball into the box is headed behind by Lindelof and Villa have a corner…

    Grealish takes it, it is headed out to Douglas Luiz who tries to find Trezeguet but the Egyptian is offside.

    Should have stayed on there…

  • ASTON VILLA 0-0 MAN UTD

    5. Villa getting a bit of early possession to settle the nerves.

    And they have done just fine so far.

    Solid enough – better than the start Brighton made against Liverpool last night.

  • ASTON VILLA 0-0 MAN UTD

    3. You're gonna have to do better than that, Anwar El Ghazi.

    He carries it across the midfield and has Taylor as an option out wide…

    But opts to shoot instead and drills it well wide.
