[Video Goals] Aston Villa 1-1 Man Utd: Falcao Effort Not Enough As United Held

By on December 20, 2014

Manchester United saw their six-game winning streak ended with a 1-1 draw at Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon.

The hosts opened the scoring in fine style inside twenty minutes when Christian Benteke curled home a superb left-footed strike that gave David De Gea no chance.

United levelled things up just after the break when Radamel Falcao was on hand to head on the equaliser from an Ashley Young cross in the 53rd minute.

Villa were soon reduced to 10-men when Gabby Agbolahor was sent off for a late challenge on Young in the 64th minute, but United couldn’t make the man advantage count and the home side held on for a point.

The draw leaves United in third place but are now seven points adrift of Chelsea and Manchester City in the Premier League table.
