It was the Villains’ first game since the New Year and they were edged out by a second-half penalty from Bruno Fernandes, despite Bertrand Traore cancelling out Anthony Martial’s opener.
Per Sofascore, the Englishman won seven duels, completed three key passes, made three clearances and three tackles.
Was Matty Cash Aston Villa's MOTM vs Manchester United?
Unsurprisingly, supporters were delighted with his performance and praised the club for his £16m transfer fee last summer to bring him to Villa Park.
“Thought Cash’s running was mint last night, he was blowing at the end and I’m not surprised! #AVFC”
“Matty Cash is unreal btw what a player. A joy to watch, and always works his socks off.”
“Matty Cash is a defender in the same way that Gareth Bale was a defender. Move him forward and you’ve got a European Cup winner on your hands.”
“15m was an absolute bargain for Matty Cash. Oozes class and is getting better and better.”
“Matty Cash is looking some signing, very good player”
“Can’t knock our performance tonight, Matty Cash & Douglas Luiz were outstanding, robbed by poor officiating. If the penalty incident happens down the other end, it isn’t a penalty, but because it’s United it’s a penalty.”
