Pictures: Aston Villa 1-1 Man Utd – Falcao header salvages point

by Richard Laverty

Manchester United’s winning run of six games came to end with a 1-1 draw on a frustrating afternoon at Villa Park.

Radamel Falcao’s second half header secured a point after Christian Benteke had fired Villa into a first half lead. Gabriel Agbonlahor was sent off shortly after Falcao’s equaliser but if anything it seemed to hinder the momentum United had built up.

Brad Guzan was in solid form but once again United’s fragile defence cost them in the first half. The side looked more stable when Michael Carrick was pushed into midfield in the second half but half the damage had been done.

Late pressure from United came to nothing, James Wilson came closest but Guzan was once again in good form to push the striker’s effort away.
