Scott McTominay grabbed the only goal as Manchester United edged out Aston Villa in the FA Cup third round at Old Trafford.
The Scotland midfielder headed in Fred’s pinpoint cross from close range inside eight minutes.
Villa almost replied when Ollie Watkins hit the bar in the first half.
The visitors thought they had levelled through Danny Ings five minutes after the break but VAR ruled it out for a foul in the build up.
