Premier League

What Manchester United Might Have Learned by Now

If Manchester United are to end their nine-year premier League title drought come may, then beating teams like Aston villa at home is a must.

United have beaten the villans more times than they have any other side in the competition. And went into saturday's clash at Old Trafford unbeaten at home against their visitors since December 2009.

And yet, as they looked to bounce back following their disappointing carabao cup exist at the hands of West Ham in the midweek, the spark required to get back to winning ways was badly missing.

A third defeat in four, with the only win in that run coming via a stoppage-time penalty save, and their knives and pointing them in Ole Gunna Solskjaer's direction.

The competition and personnel were different from Wednesday evening, but the outcome was exactly the same for United. They had plenty of shots on goal, but were neither creative nor clinical enough to force their way through a stubborn villa defence.
