The 35th day of the Premier League was marked by the match between Aston Villa (11th) and Manchester United (2nd). At home, the Villans wanted to take advantage of this and keep their ultimate hope in the race for Europe. And everything started well for the locals with the opening scoring of Bertrand Traoré (24th). An ideal start for Aston Villa who scuttled back from the locker room.
Paul Pogba thus obtained a penalty that Bruno Fernandes transformed (52nd). Manchester United even doubled the stake in the minutes that followed. Aaron Wan-Bissaka perfectly served Mason Greenwood who gave the advantage to his people (56th). At the end of the match, Edinson Cavani consolidated this success with a new goal (87th). In the last minutes, Aston Villa even finished at ten after the exclusion of Ollie Watkins (89th). With this 3-1 victory, Manchester United consolidates its second place and almost ensures its participation in the next Champions League. The Red Devils are also delaying the title of rival Manchester City.
