Man Utd Vs Aston Villa: Fernandes’ Penalty Miss Earns Ronaldo First EPL Defeat After Return

Man Utd Vs Aston Villa: Fernandes' Penalty Miss Earns Ronaldo First EPL Defeat After Return


Manchester United on Saturday lost three points to Aston Villa in their English Premier League clash.

Naija News understands that this is the Red Devils first loss in the 2021/2022 EPL competition.

Villa had earned their lead in the game after an 88 minutes goal from Kortney Hause.

United had the chance of ending the game in a draw but lost their chance after Bruno Fernandes missed a stoppage-time penalty.

The Portuguese professional footballer who plays for United as a midfielder blasted his 93rd-minute spot-kick over the bar minutes after Hause’s late header turned goal.

United despite their attacking set, having the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Fernandes, Paul Pogba and Mason Greenwood, could not earn at least a point against the visiting team today.

Naija News understands that Villa’s victory against Ole Gunnar Solskjær‘s side makes it their first win against United since December 2009.

Recall that United was shown a way out of the League Cup on Wednesday after conceding a late winner in their Champions League opener at Young Boys the week before.

Meanwhile, United’s rival, Manchester City earned three points in their league match today against Chelsea.

Pep Guardiola’s side who were visitors at Stamford Bridge today, denied the home team a breathing space until they tore their net with a goal, thanks to Brazilian footballer, Gabriel Jesus who played a reflective ball at his opponent’s watch.

The English Premier League winners are now second on the league table behind Liverpool who have a ‘must win’ game against Brentford today in the evening.
