Without injured striker Rasmus Hojlund, United were ineffective in attack until the final minute of normal time, when Harry Maguire seemed to have rescued a point for the hosts.

United had won their previous four Premier League games to rekindle hope of qualifying for next season’s Champions League, but a 2-1 defeat leaves them eight points adrift of Villa.

The result ended a run of 11 Premier League away games without a win for the west London outfit.

However, prior to this contest, only Sheffield United had a worse top-flight away record this term.

Meanwhile, Manchester City moved a point behind Premier League leaders Liverpool with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium.
