Man­chester Uni­ted 2 As­ton Vil­la 2, Old Traf­ford, Eng­lish Pre­mier Lea­gue, Dec­ember 1, 2019. Be­fore a crowd of 73,000 spec­tat­ors at Old Traf­ford, Man­chester Uni­ted came from be­hind to take a two-one lead ag­ainst Pre­mier Lea­gue new boys As­ton Vil­la, but a goal from Eng­land in­ter­na­tion­al de­fender Tyr­one Mings six min­utes pa­st the hour ma­rk meant that the Sunday ga­me ended in a two-all stalemate. 

Man­chester Uni­ted entered this en­counter on the back of a nar­row 2-1 Eu­ropa Lea­gue Group Sta­ge loss to FC As­tana at As­tana Arena, whi­le re­cently pro­moted As­ton Vil­la had de­feated New­castle Uni­ted 2-0 at Vil­la Park in the Pre­mier Lea­gue in their last ga­me. Ag­ainst the flow of play, As­ton Vil­la cap­tain Jack Greal­ish opened the scor­ing at Old Traf­ford when he be­at Man­chester Uni­ted net­mind­er Da­vid de Gea wi­th a bril­liant right-footed curl­ing shot el­ev­en min­utes in­to the fir­st ha­lf of the tie. Ole Gun­nar Solskjaer´s boys push­ed hard for a lev­el­ler and the ho­me si­de ul­ti­mately had their equal­iser three min­utes ahead of the in­ter­val when a head­er from Three Li­ons stri­ker Mar­cus Rash­ford bounced off the left-hand up­right and went in off for­mer Man­chester Uni­ted goal­keeper Tom Hea­ton. Man­chester Uni­ted began the sec­ond ha­lf the bet­ter and went in­to the lead for the fir­st time in the mat­ch thanks to a Vic­tor Lin­delof head­er in the 64th min­ute of pro­ceed­ings, but The Claret and Blue hit back to snatch a draw thro­ugh a vol­leyed goal by Three Li­ons in­ter­na­tion­al Tyr­one Mings just a couple of min­utes la­ter.
