Wednesday 13th November 2019 marked the ninth anniversary of a classic fixture between Aston Villa and Manchester United (@avfchistory).
The two played out a high scoring match at Villa Park, which ultimately finished as a 2-2 draw.
Is Wesley an upgrade on Tammy Abraham?
It was actually a pretty dull game until late on. Indeed, the score remained at 0-0 after 70 minutes had been played.
However, it burst into life in the 72nd minute when Wes Brown brought down Ashley Young in the box, with the winger scoring the subsequent penalty (BBC Sport).
Just four minutes later Villa doubled their lead, with Marc Albrighton finding the back of the net (BBC Sport). It looked for all the world like the West Midlands outfit would go on to win from there, but that wasn’t the case.
Federico Macheda pulled one back with just nine minutes left to play, before centre-back Nemanja Vidic scored a dramatic equaliser in the 85th minute (BBC Sport).
Twitter account @avfchistory posted a video of the highlights from that match on Wednesday, and several Aston Villa fans responded by expressing their disbelief that they didn’t win that game, even though it was nine years ago…
We always bottle it against them

I was very very angry after that game. We just can’t ever beat them at home can we? Hate them.
