Manchester United vs Aston Villa LIVE: Premier League latest score, goals and updates from fixture today

Solskjaer on Utd keeper battle and Villa

Manchester United look to bounce back from their midweek defeat by West Ham in the Carabao Cup with the visit of Aston Villa to Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side maintained their promising start to the season last weekend against the Hammers, securing a dramatic late victory at the London Stadium thanks to Jesse Lingard’s goal and David De Gea’s penalty save in stoppage time. Villa, meanwhile, blitzed Everton last weekend with a fine cameo from Leon Bailey, but they came just short midweek against Chelsea in the cup, with the European champions winning out on penalties.

Meanwhile the Norwegian boss inferred that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp’s comments last season have led to fewer penalties for United: “I don’t know, but there was a certain manager last [season] who was starting to worry about us getting penalties, and after that it seems like the decisions are more difficult to give. Surely I’ve seen a big, big difference since then on.”

Follow live updates from Old Trafford below, including goal updates from Stamford Bridge as the Red Devils’ fellow title contenders Chelsea and Man City battle it out simultaneously:

67 mins: This is still fascinatingly poised as we enter the closing stages. United have just one attacking change available to them following those injuries to Shaw and Maguire.

Manchester United 0-0 Aston Villa

64 mins: Lots going on. First Greenwood sees a shot saved by Martinez before Maguire goes down under a challenge from Konsa from a corner and appeals for a penalty that isn’t given. Maguire is then finally taken off as Lindelof comes on.

Manchester United 0-0 Aston Villa

62 mins: McGinn beats Maguire to the ball and flicks it around the corner into space before being brought down by the United captain – but referee Mike Dean does not award the foul!

McGinn would have had the whole half to run into but somehow that wasn’t given.

53 mins: This is a worry for United. Harry Maguire is down and receiving treatment. Solskjaer will not want to lose his captain and centre back after already seeing Shaw taken off with an injury.
