Manchester United suffered a setback when they fell to a 3-1 defeat at Aston Villa, but at least they finished the game with 11 men.

Shortly after Jacob Ramsey made it 3-1 alongside Unai Emery, a scrum broke out in the Aston Villa box with Cristiano Ronaldo and Tyrone Mings becoming entangled.

The replays saw the Man United star throw the Villa defender to the ground in a move that wouldn’t have been out of place at the Olympics, talkSPORT’s Perry Groves suggested.

“Ronaldo is frustrated he just had a Greco-Roman wrestling with Tyrone Mings,” Groves said in a commentary for talkSPORT.

“He received a yellow card for that, Tyrone Mings did nothing wrong at all, he held on.”

Moments later, Ronaldo’s teammate Lisandro Martinez then launched into his own argy-bargy after elbowing Leon Bailey in the stomach.

“Then Lisandro Martinez got three elbows in the stomach from Leon Bailey, he was lucky to get away with it without a yellow card,” Groves added.

“Man United are very frustrated, he looks disjointed, this performance for Man United has been like a Ralf Rangnick performance. There is no cohesion.

“Erik ten Hag should have made substitutions earlier [than the 65 minute]. Tactically, Unai Emery won this battle as from the start of the second half he basically went 4-4-2. Two banks of four, see if Man United were able to break them and they didn’t. »

Villa got off to a fast start in what was Emery’s first game in charge with Bailey and Lucas Digne drawing them 2-0 down in the opening 11 minutes.

An own goal from Ramsey on the stroke of half time saw the Red Devils come back, but Ramsey scored from the right side in the 49th minute to secure the victory for Villa.
