Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men managed to beat high-flyers Aston Villa 2-1 last night, thanks to goals from Anthony Martial and Bruno Fernandes.

Martial handed United the lead JUST before half-time, but Villa would strike back not long into the second half with Bertrand Traore scoring the equaliser.

It didn’t take United long to reclaim the lead, Paul Pogba invited a challenge from Douglas Luiz winning a penalty and Fernandes stepped up and placed the ball into the bottom-left corner. 

Both United and Villa observed a minute’s silence ahead of the game in memory of Tommy Docherty, who managed both clubs.

Docherty won the FA Cup with United back in 1977.

Elsewhere, Brighton could end Sergio Romero’s Man United nightmare with a January transfer.

The club are looking to bring in another keeper after telling former No1 Mat Ryan he is free to go.

United and Arsenal could face stiff competition in the pursuit for Real Madrid midfielder Isco, according to AS.

The report states that United are keeping an eye on the Spaniard, but Sevilla have entered the race and Isco is keen on a reunion with former coach Julen Lopetegui.

United have not given up hope in signing Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, and they believe they can get him for under £100million.

According to 90Min, United haven’t been put off by Sancho’s rocky start to the season in which he is yet to score a Bundesliga goal.

On the contrary, the Red Devils believe that his recent form could help lowering his staggering asking price.

The Manchester giants tried to bring the star winger over to Old Trafford in the summer but refused to match his £108m release clause due to the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
