Unai Emery and Aston Villa supporters will undoubtedly be quite disappointed after the late loss to Manchester United.

Even if the visitors occasionally played well, Emery’s team demonstrated their ability to at least draw even.

After leveling the score, Douglas Luiz might have even scored swiftly for the win; the opportunities were there.

However, as a lot of teams have strangely discovered this season, Scott McTominay eventually found the back of the net with a key goal.

Even though some players, like Boubacar Kamara, underperformed this time, Unai Emery will undoubtedly still be happy with several individual efforts.

Villa has dominated teams like Manchester City and Arsenal at home in the league this season, but their starting defense tandem’s absence did have a cost.

Both Pau Torres and Ezri Konsa were missed.

And incidentally, it was a Villa defender that Unai Emery was seen screaming at during the first half against United today.

Alex Moreno, a defender for Villa, needed to go behind United’s defense, according to Unai Emery.
Journalist Jacob Tanswell on X revealed that Emery was acting strangely on his touchline while attempting to reach Alex Moreno.

Emery saw that Villa had a chance to take advantage of United’s wing since Alejandro Garnacho was playing so freely

Tanswell explained: “Unai Emery is screaming at Alex Moreno to keep on running past Garnacho.

“Both he and Jacob Ramsey are getting a lot of space down the left.”To be honest, it appears that Emery was correct this time.

Man United’s front line is beginning to connect, so they were always going to pose a threat moving forward.

But Villa ought to have taken advantage of more opportunities to score and converted the ones they did.

In the end, Lucas Digne took Moreno’s £13 million spot on the left; whenever the Frenchman returns to full fitness, this substitution will likely be permanent.

Even though this evening wasn’t precisely Villa or Emery’s night, they still have a lot of games left in this season.

That being said, it seems the club have now established a lofty transfer target for the summer, someone who may have helped today.
