Manchester United Has Its Act Together

It has taken a whole lotta time, but better late than never.

Manchester United eased past Aston Villa with a 3-1 scoreline, as they edge closer to the table's top and farther from fifth spot.

At one point, the Red Devils looked a mid-table side. They struggled to cope with chemistry and formation, but it looks as if Louis van Gaal has found the right blend for success at Old Trafford.

After convincing wins against rivals Tottenham and Liverpool, the Devils were well and truly pumped.

United had a bad start as they were robbed of a penalty and a Villan red card:

Didn't we see that referee in the NCAA's basketball championship game?

After many attempts ...

United finally broke the deadlock via Ander Herrera:

The Villains allowed a touch too many for the young Devil.

It also seems like Aston Villa always sees Wayne Rooney score, but they've never witnessed one of this caliber:

Well, at least we know his hamstrings are loose. We also know that Rooney always scores against the Villains. Always.

United are far the perfect team. No news flash there. For one, their defense is a bit shaky. But against Villa, it was their customary goal stopping machine, David de Gea, who was the culprit this time.

Rooney’s celebration had barely finished in the 79th minute, and Villa pops one in the 80th. You'd expect a goalkeeper of such stellar attributes to make a simple save.

Dude had a similar lapse at Anfield, too.

Rusty or not, perhaps Víctor Valdés should have a go now.

United's shot at trois points looked dicey for a while, but was assured by a late Herrera second in the 90th minute:

So this could be it, better late than never. United's firing on all cylinders -- once de Gea gets back in gear -- and now sets it sights on storming past Manchester City.
