LIVE
94'
FT: Man U 2-2 A Villa! All over at Old Trafford and Man Utd have been held to a 2-2 draw at home by Villa. It was a cracking contest and Lindelof put United 2-1 up in the 64th minute before Mings made it 2-2 just a few minutes later. United finished the game strongly, but Villa held firm and deserved the draw. That's all from us, thanks for joining us and see you again soon!
94'
The delivery in is touched by Maguire and then Konsa clears. It's all over!!!

Villa sub: Hourihane off, Lansbury comes on.
79'
Man Utd sub: Williams off, Shaw on.

77'
Villa counter and Hourihane earns a corner off Wan-Bissaka. They are a threat on the break.
77'
James sends in a ball across the face of the box, but no teammate is there.

67'
The goal stands! 2-2!! The VAR confirms it.
66'
And now Mings makes it 2-2!!!! VAR will check it for offside. Villa get a corner, it's taken short and Targett's pass is volleyed home brilliantly by Mings!!
65'
60 seconds after Grealish missed that sitter, Villa trail.

64'
Great save by Heaton to deny Wan-Bissaka!!!
63'
I can't believe it!!! Grealish misses a sitter!!! McGinn gives it to Trezeguet and then his pass is deflected straight to Grealish inside the six yard-box and he somehow hits wide! That had to be a goal!
62'
Williams sees yellow for a very cynical pull back on Trezeguet.

HT: Man U 1-1 A Villa!! Half-time at OT and it's been an exciting first half. Villa have had the better of it and took an early lead through Grealish, but they then lost El-Ghazi to injury. Rashford, with a bit of luck off Heaton made it 1-1 and then Villa were denied by the woodwork just before the break. Join us for more shortly!
45'
The set piece is booted away by Targett and that's HT!!
45'
Free-kick to United seconds before half-time and Guilbert is cautioned for the foul on Williams.
45'
On Rashford's goal, it looks like the ball was spinning in after hitting the post anyway. However, the PL say it's a Heaton own goal. It's a tough one.

45'
Free-kick for Villa on this near side after Mata brings down Grealish.

42'
It's 1-1!!!! Man Utd take a short corner, Fred to Mata and then Pereira sends a superb cross into the back post and Rashford heads the ball against off the post, the ball then hits Heaton before going in. Not sure if it will be Rashford's goal or an own goal.
41'

39'

Hourihane is offside.
31'
The Man Utd players stopped, but you never do that. The ref was right to hold the whistle because of the VAR.
30'
McGinn scores, but it's disallowed!!! This is very interesting! Grealish gets the ball in an offside position for the linesman, he raises the flag, but the ref holds the whistle, Grealish plays on, goes into the box squares for Wesley and then McGinn taps in. Then the ref blew the whistle for offside. It was very tight, but VAR confirmed the call.

18'
Villa win a corner.
17'
Villa sub: El-Ghazi is replaced by Trezeguet.
16'
El-Ghazi is down again. He can't continue. I think he may have taken a knock to his right leg after passing the ball for the goal, but not certain. Just seen he tweaks something after kicking the ball. There was no player near him.
16'
Mata is caught offside.
15'
Shouts of handball by United, but Pawson not interested.
