in a game that ended in a 2-2 draw, and now their manager

says that he is disappointed with the result, although he thinks that the Red Devils have made some progress.

The Red Devils were two goals ahead of Aston Villa until the 77th minute of the game, but

answered Bruno Fernandes’ goals and secured one point for Aston Villa.

"It is very difficult to find positives after these 95 minutes,"

he told Sky Sports.

"I felt it was the best game since I came here, in the first half for 30 minutes, when we dominated the game. We had taken some steps forward but have a few things to do better.

"The plan was to press them in the midzone and we did that very well in the first 30 minutes, and control the ball, and those were the positives. When you are 2-0 up you have to defend better than we did in the last 15 minutes.

"We gave away too many balls at times in the last 15 minutes, we were not as compact as before and conceded the two goals. In the last 15 minutes before half-time we were not as courageous to step up, it was better in the second half and then you have to take the three points home. It feels like a defeat, to be honest.

"Right now it's very disappointing but what we showed was a step forward, but it's about getting the results, it feels like two points lost and given away."
