Manchester United failed to take advantage of Chelsea’s 3-3 draw against Everton earlier in the day at Stamford Bridge, slumping to a 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa. A Gabriel Agbonlahor header in the 21st minute was enough to hand the visiting Villains a famous win at Old Trafford. Sir Alex Ferguson wasn’t too disappointed in the performance however, claiming his side were just unlucky to not have made a breakthrough.

We were camped in their box for a lot of the second half and had some really good chances. We only needed to take one to get us back in the game and it might have changed from then on; it was just one of those days when it wouldn’t go in," Ferguson told MUTV.

With the loss to Villa, Man Utd missed a golden opportunity to go level with league leader Chelsea on points. They next entertain Wolves, when Mick McCarthy’s side visit Old Trafford on Tuesday.
