Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Lineker believes that following Fernandes’s failure to score from the penalty spot today, his Portugal international teammate and star forward Ronaldo will now be taking the spot kicks for United.

Ex-Villa star Ahmed Elmohamady has taken to Twitter to express his delight at the win for the Villans.

It was a disappointing result for United, but Villa will be over the moon to have picked up all three points at Old Trafford.

It is not easy to win against a team that has Ronaldo in it, but Villa have done just that and should be proud.
