Man Utd cruise to fourth straight win

9 Jul 2020
Aston Villa v Manchester United

Red Devils the first team to win by three goals in four successive PL matches with 3-0 success at Aston Villa

Manchester United secured a fourth straight victory as a 3-0 win at Aston Villa took them to within a point of fourth-placed Leicester City.

Dean Smith's hosts started positively, with Jack Grealish and Trezeguet both coming close.

But Bruno Fernandes opened the scoring for Man Utd with a penalty on 27 minutes, after he was fouled by Ezri Konsa.

Mason Greenwood doubled the lead with a fierce shot from the edge of the box in first-half stoppage time.

And Paul Pogba made it 3-0 after the break with a low, curling shot after Fernandes teed him with a corner kick.

Man Utd, in fifth position, are the first team in Premier League history to win four successive matches by a three-goal margin.

Villa stay 19th with 27 points, four points from safety.
