Manchester United had a chance to rescue a point as they earned a penalty kick in the added time, but super star midfielder Bruno Fernandes sent the ball flying into the stands, with an horribly executed penalty that left many asking questions as to why the more experience penalty taker Cristiano Ronaldo, who has scored over 100 penalties, could not have been granted the chance to equalize.
visitors on the other hand, were guilty of wasting several clear-cut chances but redeemed themselves in the last few minutes with defender Hause beating Cavani at the near post after a corner, to give Aston villa their much deserved win in the 88th minute, claiming a rare Old Trafford win.
A deflected shot was enough to see Chelsea lose their first league match and Man City get their first win in three matches against Chelsea.
Gabriel Jesus strike deflected off Chelsea’s midfielder jorginho,directing the ball into his own net following City’s 10th corner of the game.
The goal changed the dynamic of the game forcing Chelsea to attack after a first half of total dominance and intense pressure from City.

Scoring is 52 goal for City, Gabriel Jesus at this to say:
“We prepare to play well, we came to play against one of the best teams in Europe, they play so good and have a lot of amazing players, we knew it was going to be difficult for us but if we suffer a little bit, we can attack,” He told BT Sport.
Manchester City climb to second place in the table level, on 13 points with third-place Chelsea.
