Manchester United found themselves down early to Aston Villa on Saturday. They were able to bounce back minutes later with a goal from Wayne Rooney off a cross from Shinji Kagawa.

As the first half was winding down, they were able to take the lead thanks to a penalty kick. Villa’s Leandro Bacuna was called for a foul on United midfielder Juan Mata in the box, and received a yellow card. Rooney took the kick from the spot and buried it for his second goal of the game and a United lead.
