Manchester United hosted Aston Villa in today's lunch encounter of the Premier League.
Aston Villa shocked many as they fought for all three points all through the match and eventually got it at the dead.
The first half of the match ended in a goalless draw as Manchester United failed to find the back of the net. Villa came into the second half energized. They controlled possession throughout the second half and were rewarded with a goal thanks to Hause who headed in Douglas Luiz corner in the 88th minute.
The match saw United backline duo, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw substituted due to injury. At the 91st minute, United won their first Penalty of the season after Ole Gunnar Solksjaer complained about their lack of Penalties during his press conference.
Before Bruno took the Penalty, Aston Villa goal keeper played a mind game with Cristiano Ronaldo as he was seen daring the striker to take the Penalty. He carried out similar act on Yerry Mina during Argentina's semifinal clash against Colombia at the Copa America tournament.
Bruno Fernandes took the Penalty which unfortunately sailed over the crossbar and Manchester United recorded their first defeat of the season at their home.
