MANCHESTER UNITED fans fumed as their side got off to a horror start against Aston Villa.
The Midlands side were buoyed by the arrival of new boss Unai Emery, with the Spaniard receiving a rousing pre-match reception from the Villa Park faithful.
And home supporters had even more to cheer shortly after the game got underway, with Man United making a wretched start.
Villa winger Leon Bailey got Emery off to a flyer by firing his team into the lead after just seven minutes.
And the returning Lucas Digne doubled his side's advantage with a brilliant free kick just moments later.
Goalkeeper Emi Martinez even performed a bit of first-half showboating with his head.
