That is despite Unai Emery’s Villa at one point going 2-1 up to kickstart a six-goal second half.

United boss Ten Hag was left unhappy with how his side started the game but praised them for their recovery.

He told Sky Sports: “Our two halves are never the same.

“We controlled the game in the first half by good pressing, we won a lot of possession but then did the wrong things.

“Bad in transition, missing the pass, one step too late passing in behind so we missed a lot of opportunities.

“We were sloppy and had some corners against us. At half time we said keep the pressing but be more direct.

“I’m proud of the team we could do that, we are happy tonight.”

He said: “Happy with that resilience.

“That’s what we need and have to show every game, I was so disappointed and mad on Sunday because we didn’t fight.

“We were sloppy, especially in the defence and United players always have to show 100 per cent discipline.”
