The Red Devils were 0-2 down before the break but scored three times in the second half.

Manchester United defeated Aston Villa at home in a productive match of the 19th round of the English Premier League (EPL) . The match at the Old Trafford stadium in Manchester ended with a score of 3:2 .

The visitors took the lead in the 21st minute of the match – after John McGinn's cross from a free kick from the right flank, no one touched the ball and it flew into the far corner.

In the 26th minute, Unai Emery's team doubled their advantage – after a corner, Clement Lenglet headed the ball into the center of the penalty area, and Leander Dendoncker put his foot up and sent the ball into the goal. So Aston Villa went into the break with a two-goal handicap.

However, in the second half, Erik ten Hag's team managed to make a stunning comeback. First, in the 48th minute, Alejandro Garnacho received a pass from Marcus Rashford, rounded Lions goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez and sent the ball into the empty net. But the referee, after VAR intervention, canceled the goal, recording it as offside.

In the 59th minute, Garnacho scored again from a pass from Rashford, but this time everything was according to the rules. And in the 71st minute, the 19-year-old Argentine scored a double with a shot from outside the penalty area, not without the help of a rebound from the opponent.

In the 82nd minute, the Red Devils snatched victory – Rasmus Heilund scored his debut goal in the Premier League, taking advantage of a rebound in the opponent's penalty area and shooting right into the corner.
