For the first time since arriving at Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo was left unmarked, in a gray match for the ‘Red Devils’ who lost at home against Aston Villa (0-1) after Bruno Fernandes missed a penalty last. sigh.
Cristiano, who played the 90 minutes this Saturday, could not help United to get something positive, after having scored in the three games he had played with United. In addition, he handed over the responsibility of taking a penalty in the 91st minute, which would have meant a draw, to his compatriot Fernandes, who missed it.
Cristiano rested during the week against West Ham United, but not even with those did he manage that his team did not leave fundamental points at home against a rival, a priori, accessible to the aspirations of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s, who put the leadership of the Premier League in danger.
Two minutes from the end, and after United had been trying throughout the game, a header from Kortney Hause gave Villa the victory, which assaults Old Trafford and causes United to lose their privileged position in the table.
With this defeat, United are fourth, with 13 points, the same as Chelsea and City, who have already played, and Liverpool, who have yet to play their match this weekend.
It is United’s second straight puncture this week, after being eliminated in the League Cup.
