Jack Grealish gave Villa an unlikely lead when he looped an incredible effort over the helpless David De Gea, with an own goal from Tom Heaton and a header from Victor Lindelof putting United back in the ascendancy before England international Tyrone Mings equalised through an instinctive finish.

Given that late blow, United desperately needed to hunt for a winning goal in their bid to turn the club’s league form around – and the last thing they seemingly warranted was a left-back swap.

Brandon Williams gave way for Luke Shaw ten minutes from full-time due to being on a yellow card, but supporters hardly think this was a high priority given the scoreline – insisting a more threatening change needed to be made.
