Manchester United Are Living in It, Early and Often
After a lucky hump against the Spurs, United were again not up to par, this time against against Aston Villa.
But for the second match in a row, you wouldn't know it by the result.
The Red Devils defeated the Villains, 0-1, to collect all three points while effectively whistling past the graveyard.
After all the big summer signings, it looked as if the old days were returning to Old Trafford, but no.
Louis van Gaal's crew struggled badly against a mediocre Aston Villa and ended up with only the one goal. Looks like David de Gea’s future is not their only problem.
Yowza! That pass from Juan Mata should be an early candidate for Assist of the Year.
The future is in safe hands for United.
Meanwhile, yet again, the moral of the story is not how the job got done, just that it got done.
