Rasmus Hojlund finally scored his first Premier League goal as Manchester United came from two down to beat Aston Villa 3-2 in a thriller at Old Trafford.
First-half goals from John McGinn and Leander Dendoncker had seemingly put Unai Emery’s in-form side in full control and Erik ten Hag’s team were booed off at the break. But two goals from Alejandro Garnacho changed the mood before Hojlund won it.
The £72m summer signing has had to wait until his 15th Premier League appearance for this goal, coming in the first game since Sir Jim Ratcliffe purchased a 25 per cent stake in United which gives his INEOS company control of football operations.
What a start, the landmark victory celebrated wildly at the final whistle. The three points lift Manchester United up to sixth in the Premier League table, while Aston Villa stay third, missing the chance to move level on points with leaders Liverpool.
