Manchester United blew a two goal lead against Aston Villa to draw 2-2 at Villa Park.

It means Ralf Rangnick’s side have won just two of the last four Premier League games and remain in seventh place.

The side are at risk of leaving too much to do in the battle to finish in the top four.

Goalkeeper David de Gea had kept United in the game prior to Villa’s two goals, which he could do little about as the home side cut the defence open too easily.

The Spaniard expressed his frustrating at United losing more ground, sending a message which made clear he saw this as two points dropped rather than one gained.

Midfielder Bruno Fernandes scored Manchester United’s two goals and he also posted a message, expressing his frustration with the result.

United face Brentford away in midweek before hosting West Ham next weekend. Two victories are a must, and neither seem like easy games right now.

The players deserved better but failed to manage the game well, and some of that criticism falls on manager Ralf Rangnick, who was too slow to react to Villa’s second half improvement.
