Two quickfire goals to turn the match around before adding another late on to put the game beyond doubt as the Red Devils seal all three points.

Manchester United continued their habit of coming from behind as they scored thrice in the second half to beat Aston Villa 3-1 after trailing in the first half.

Bertrand Traore opened the scoring at the 24-minute mark. The winger turned away from Victor Lindelof before firing past Dean Henderson to put his side on the front foot against the run of play.

Man United found the equalizer through Bruno Fernandes, with the Portuguese midfielder converting the spot-kick awarded for bringing down Paul Pogba inside the penalty area.

Just four minutes later, the visitors took the lead, with Mason Greenwood drilling a low shot into the bottom-right corner after easily escaping Tyrone Mings.

Maintaining his red-hot form, Edinson Cavani then put the match beyond doubt for Man United as he met Marcus Rashford’s cross into the box from the right and flicked a header past Emiliano Martinez.
