Aston Villa’s Kortney Hause has talked about his side’s performance against Manchester United.

On the day that

Aston Villa

managed to defeat

Manchester United

at Old Trafford,

Kortney Hause

, who scored his side’s goal in their 1-0 victory, claims that the Red Devils didn’t put them under so much pressure.


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s

men had 27 shots in their defeat, Hause insists that they had the upper hand against the Red Devils.

"We had the better chances,"

he told BBC Sport.

"We haven't really had to defend too tough as a team, but we've come away with the three points and that's all that matters. We're happy.

"When they gave the penalty I was devastated and fuming with myself. Looking back I didn't make myself any bigger. I've tried to bring my arms in so when Bruno blazed it over the bar I was relieved. I think it was justice in the end because I don't think it was a penalty.

"The rules are the rules. All we can do as players is play the game and play it well and whatever decision the referees and VAR want to give we have to get on with it."

Aston Villa’s boss

Dean Smith

is also happy with his side’s performance, saying that they had pretty serious opportunities, although the oppositions had chances to change the result.

"We had two big [chances] in the first half,"

he said.

"We had one wing-back cross it to the other wing-back and Matt Targett put it over the bar, and then Ollie Watkins had a big chance where David de Gea's miskicked it and then made a really good save.

"They had lots of little chances where we got in really good blocks. I thought we deserved the win: we were aggressive, and brave, and you have to be sometimes coming here.

"I thought it was a very harsh penalty; I'm not sure where he's meant to put his arm. Justice was done when he missed it."
