Aston Villa 0 Man United 3

David Moyes

As­ton Vil­la 0 Man­chester Uni­ted 3, Vil­la Park, Eng­lish Pre­mier Lea­gue, Dec­ember 15, 2013. Da­vid Moyes was un­der­stand­ably pleased wi­th the 3-0 win ag­ainst As­ton Vil­la and lav­ished par­tic­u­lar praise on Dan­ny Wel­beck who net­ted his fir­st Pre­miership goals since the 4-1 vic­tory over Swansea City at Liberty Sta­dium on the open­ing day of the 2013-14 season.

Man­chester Uni­ted, who were play­ing in a 4-2-3-1 form­a­tion, de­feated Paul Lambert´s As­ton Vil­la by 3-0 at Vil­la Park cour­tesy of a fir­st ha­lf brace by Three Li­ons for­ward Dan­ny Wel­beck and a sec­ond pe­riod goal from fel­low Eng­land team­mate Tom Clev­er­ley. The Old Traf­ford si­de had ex­per­i­enced some­thing of a roller­coast­er start to the new cam­paign which had seen The Reds lose at ho­me to West Brom­wich Al­bion, Ever­ton, and New­castle Uni­ted, but ac­cord­ing to man­ager Da­vid Moyes, the de­fend­ing Pre­mier Lea­gue cham­pi­ons had lacked a bit of good for­tune which could have made all the dif­fer­ence, and he was prob­ably spot on about that. Da­vid Moyes: “I tho­ught Dan­ny Wel­beck did a good job, es­pe­cially when we have Robin van Per­sie and Javi­er Her­nandez out today. When you have chances, you show what you can do and he cer­tainly did that.” As­ton Vil­la Te­am: Brad Guz­an, Nat­han Baker, Matt Low­ton, An­tonio Luna, Ciaran Clark, Ash­ley Roy West­wood, Marc Al­brighton, Karim El Ah­madi, Yacouba Sylla, Gabby Ag­bon­lahor, Chris­ti­an Ben­teke. Sub­stitutes: Jor­dan Bowery, Al­ex­an­der Tonev, Le­andro Ba­cuna, Ga­ry Gard­ner, Andi Wei­mann, Libor Kozak, Jed Steer. Man­chester Uni­ted Te­am: Da­vid de Gea, Ra­fael da Silva, Phil Jones, Jon­ny Evans, Pat­rice Ev­ra, Ry­an Gig­gs, Tom Clev­er­ley, An­tonio Va­lencia, Dan­ny Wel­beck, Ad­nan Januzaj, Way­ne Roo­ney.
