It wasn’t an excellent performance from Man Utd and gaffer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer felt something was lacking.

Solskjær: “We were very aggressive, very good on transition, got forward quickly but the final shot, final pass and final decision wasn’t always the best one. 20 of the 30 attempts were blocked.”

In this article, we’d be looking at 4 players that didn’t quite stick to the task in the disappointing 1 nil loss.

Mason Greenwood:

The English teenager is known for his attacking brilliance and ability to be lethal in front of goal but he didn’t impress against Villa.

Mason Greenwood was always looking to make things happen on the attacking end but he had a major shortcoming which was in terms of his decision making. On several occasions, Greenwood failed to release his attacking partner Cristiano Ronaldo when he should have done so and this led to many chances gone begging for Man Utd.

The 19 year old ended up with the most shot involvements for the home side but that did not have any positive impact on the result from a Man Utd perspective as his teammates were in better positions to put the ball in the back of the net.

Harry Maguire:

The Man Utd captain was shaky in defense for United and he almost made an error leading to goal in the 22nd minute when his poor back pass to David De Gea put Man Utd in all sorts of trouble but the goalkeeper was on hand to bail his team out on that occasion.

Maguire didn’t look comfortable throughout the game until he got substituted for Victor Lindelof after sustaining an injury in the second half.

Cristiano Ronaldo:

Cristiano Ronaldo has a very good record against Aston Villa but it just wasn’t to be for the 36 year old yesterday as he didn’t quite come to the party for his team.

It is though not expected for Ronaldo to score in every game but he never came close yesterday as he ended the game with 0 shot(s) on target.

Bruno Fernandes:

The Portuguese maestro was pulling the strings in midfield for Man Utd and was arguably his team’s best player going forward with a lot of key passes and chances created.

Fernandes however didn’t bring his best to the fore when it mattered most as he uncharacteristically skied Man Utd’s injury time penalty that could have secured at least a point for the home side.
