After the match, Villa manager Unai Emery praised his side and also explained the victory.

"I think the players showed us they were hungry, they were feeling good emotions, thinking about our match today [in training] and they did a very good job. They played in their positions and I want them to feel good playing with their characteristics and skills. The shape for me is not so important, but we tried to use the spaces where Manchester United maybe let us do our job", he said.

"Here at home, the supporters help the team a lot and the energy was amazing. They transmit to us and the response is playing in good spaces, with a good rhythm. I think the players feel so good at home and I want to use this result [as momentum]", he further added.
