United take revenge on Emery’s Aston Villa in the Cup

MADRID, Nov. 10. (EUROPA PRESS) – Manchester United eliminated Aston Villa (4-2) this Thursday in the third round of the League Cup, held at Old Trafford, as revenge for the defeat against the ‘villains’ by Unai Emery last Sunday in what was the Spanish coach’s debut.

After 3-1 in the Premier, Emery’s team had the ‘red devil’ team down twice at home, in the cup round, in a second half that took center stage. Watkins made it 0-1 and, although Martial immediately equalized, Dalot’s own goal gave the visitors another lead in the 61st minute.

The entrance of the young Alejandro Garnacho, 18 years old, changed the match and worked unbeatably for Erik ten Hag. After Rashford’s 2-2, the Hispanic Argentine, author of the 0-1 at Anoeta a week ago, led the comeback with two assists.

Bruno Fernandes and McTominay took advantage of the gifts to seal the pass to the round of 16 of a United that lowered the smoke at Villa de Emery, when they savored another historic night.
