Video: Victor Lindelof scores header to give Man Utd lead against Aston Villa

Victor Lindelof gave Manchester United the lead against Aston Villa with a well-directed header at the back post.

Following a Fred cross, Villa striker Wesley’s failed clearance fell straight to the Swedish defender who looped his header past a helpless Tom Heaton.

Moments earlier Jack Grealish had missed an opportunity to score his second and give Villa the lead, after his stunning opening first-half strike.

The Reds have upped the tempo in the second-half, after a lacklustre first-half performance.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side equalised before half-time when Marcus Rashford’s header came off the post and went in via Tom Heaton’s deflection.

Edit: United failed to keep hold of their lead after Lindelof’s header, as Tyrone Mings equalised almost immediately.
