Looking at their striking options, it was easy for anyone to give United an easy win but nothing is guaranteed in the Premier League.
Villa missed so many great chances to go in front especially in the first half with Mark Target missing quite a clear chance after De Gea had hurried a clearance from Maguire's back pass. United did threaten also but still lacked that final edge finish.
Looking at their team performance, United fans noticed one thing that has been clear under Solksjaer that they cannot win anything with a midfield pivot of McTominay and Fred.
Stevo: Fred offers nothing going forward and McTominay is always hit or miss. Absolutely invisible today. If this is decided to be our midfield pair for the season then we need a new manager and coaching staff. #MUNAVL
Chan: I've been saying Mctominay and fred are prem quality not quite united quality. But they get dominated by every premier league side...
Ryan: I'm sorry but how can you have: Ronaldo, Pogba, Varane and Sancho. Then a midfield with Fred and mctominay
Rahul Kuasick: I really think #Fred is blackmailing #Ole behind the scenes.. i really wonder how can such a shit player play at this high level..Something fishy is happening there...Else Ole is highly obsessed with him Same goes to #McTominay. McFred is the reason this team lacks behind.
Stephen: You can’t win a title with a poor central midfield. Keep saying it. Anyone who thinks McTominay or Fred are the answers is deluded. You also can’t win a title with a manager and coaching staff that can’t create a system to control matches. #mufc
