Moisés Caicedo: ‘My dream has always been to play for Manchester United

Aston Villa will provide a stern test of those credentials, though, with Dean Smith’s side enjoying a brilliant campaign after their relegation struggle last season. The Villans sit in fifth, just seven points adrift of Liverpool, and have two games in hand, with astute summer recruitment paying dividends as the likes of Emiliano Martinez, Matty Cash and Ollie Watkins continue to thrive. Villa will be confident of causing an upset, too, having gone unbeaten last month while holding Chelsea to a 1-1 draw last time out. Follow all the action live below:

MANCHESTER UNITED 1-1 ASTON VILLA

57’: GOAL! Villa equalise through Traore! A quick free-kick finds Grealish, who darts into the area. Grealish crosses for Traore, who is completely unmarked at the back post, who has the time to control the ball and slot it past De Gea.

MANCHESTER UNITED 1-0 ASTON VILLA

A hugely enjoyable first half in Manchester. Both sides could’ve scored, especially United early on. Martial’s goal was expertly taken, and was the product of some nice play between Rashford and Wan-Bissaka.

There are more goals in this game, and Villa could easily equalise, given they produce more concrete chances in the second half.

MANCHESTER UNITED 1-0 ASTON VILLA

41’:  GOAL! The home side take the lead through Martial.

Nice build-up play between Rashford and Wan-Bissaka sees the right-back cross for the Frenchman, who evades his marker to plant a header past Martinez.

1609533776

MANCHESTER UNITED 0-0 ASTON VILLA

37’: Very nearly a brilliant goal from Fernanes, who delicately chips Martinez, but the midfielder doesn’t get enough curl on the ball, and it goes narrowly wide.

That would’ve been marvellous had it gone in.

1609533659

MANCHESTER UNITED 0-0 ASTON VILLA

34’: Villa again beginning to assert their authority on the game, getting into some promising positions.

However they are leaving themselves open to counter-attacks, which is a facet of their game United will exploit.
