Football Scores: Man Utd 1-0 Aston Villa

Manchester United survived a scare from Aston Villa as they produced one of the narrow football scores of the weekend in the FA Cup. Scott Mc Tominay scored the all-important match-winner in the eighth minute. Villa thought to have scored the equalizer only for a lengthy VAR check to rule Danny Ings’ equalizer for a Jacob Ramsey foul on Edinson Cavani.

Managers Reaction 

Man United boss Ralf Rangnick: “I think we showed a reaction after the Wolves game, that is what everyone expected from us. We knew it would be very difficult against Villa. In the first half, I thought we did well. It could have been 3-2 or 4-3 to us at half-time. In the second half, we were on the counter-attack and we could have made more of those situations. We took the wrong decisions at times but when we changed to a diamond in midfield, we had more control.”

Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard: “Very tough. We are out of the FA Cup and coming into this job I saw this competition as an opportunity to have a good run in it. The lads gave a lot in terms of performance but we need to learn and close the gap from a performance that was nearly good enough. We dominated for large parts but we were not ruthless enough.”
