Bruno Fernandes makes it 2-0 as Manchester United lead at Villa Park.
Steven Gerrard was preparing to get Philippe Coutinho on moments before United doubled their lead, but he was made wait to introduce the Brazilian, who has joined Aston Villa on loan until the end of the season.
Bruno Fernandes took advantage of a howler from the Villa goalkeeper in the first-half, but he struck a second time after United won back possession with a high press.
We love how the ball smashes off the crossbar before crossing the line. Get in!

This is exactly the type of football Ralf Rangnick wants to see from his team and it should allow the team see out of the rest of the match comfortably.
Three points will only help United’s bid to get back into the top four.
