Aston Villa 2 Man United 3

Sir Alex Ferguson

As­ton Vil­la 2 Man­chester Uni­ted 3, Vil­la Park, Eng­lish Pre­mier Lea­gue, Nov­ember 10, 2012. Sir Al­ex Fer­guson was full of praises for his play­ers af­ter they ral­lied from 2-0 down to over­come As­ton Vil­la by 3-2 at Vil­la Park. An­dreas Wei­mann han­ded The Vil­lains a com­fort­able two-goal lead, but a brace by Javi­er Her­nandez plus an own goal from Dutch de­fender Ron Vlaar earned the vis­it­ors a nar­row win.

Af­ter col­lect­ing an­oth­er three im­port­ant points ag­ainst sev­en­teenth po­si­tioned As­ton Vil­la in Birm­ing­ham, Sir Al­ex Ferguson´s Man­chester Uni­ted were now top­ping the Pre­miership ta­ble wi­th twenty-sev­en points af­ter win­ning their last five Pre­mier Lea­gue mat­ches. Sir Al­ex Fer­guson: “It is a mag­ni­fi­cent ga­me, I must say that. As­ton Vil­la have done fant­ast­ic today, they have run their socks off, and you have to feel sorry for them the ef­fort they put in, but we nev­er gave in and hit the bar twice in the sec­ond ha­lf, but once we got the sec­ond goal we came alive and it was a fant­ast­ic ga­me. We have put pres­sure on ourselves today, but we came thro­ugh it and that´s a les­son that we really need to be bet­ter in de­fence. You ad­mire the tenacity of the per­form­ance when they need to do it, they do it and the at­tack­ing play was ter­rif­ic at times.” As­ton Vil­la Te­am: Brad Guz­an, Mat­thew Low­ton, Ron Vlaar, Ciaran Clark, Enda Stevens, An­dreas Wei­mann, Ash­ley West­wood, Steph­en Ire­land, Bar­ry Ban­nan, Gab­riel Ag­bon­lahor, Chris­ti­an Ben­teke Liolo.
