[Video Highlights] Aston Villa 0-1 Man Utd: Januzaj Scores Classy Winner For Utd

By on August 14, 2015

Adnan Januzaj was the hero as Manchester United beat Aston Villa 1-0 at Villa Park on Friday night to maintain their 100% record this season.

The young Belgium has found first team football hard to come by under Louis van Gaal but he was handed a rare start in attack this evening and repaid his manager with a fine goal.

Januzaj received a pass from Juan Mata down the left channel inside the box and turned his man before slotting home past Brad Guzan for 1-0 in the 29th minute.

Villa offered very little threat in what was actually a pretty poor game and it was summer signing Memphis Depay who could, and perhaps should, have wrapped things up for United in the second half.

The Dutch attacker raced clear in the 72nd minute but curled his effort agonizingly wide so missed the chance to make it 2-0. It didn’t matter in the end as United held on to make it two wins from two games.
