Aston Villa 0 Manchester United 1

Match corresponding to the Premier League and played at Villa Park.


Back to the Premier League meant back to a more established line up. De Gea was on the bench for this one and Lindegaard kept goal and a clean sheet. The match as a spectacle was a disappointment as Villa showed how much of a dire side they have come while United ploughed ahead solidly but failed to create little of note, midfield again! The match was plagued by injuries. Chicharito went over his own ankle quite painfully and was stretched off with his ankle in a splint. Rio Ferdinand also limped off injured while Villa lost keeper Given and Jermaine Jenas to self inflicted injuries. Phil Jones scored his first senior goal after being assisted  by Nani. Now to Basle and securing qualification to the knock outs of the Champions League
