BLIND SMOKE: Fans excited with Andre Onana as Man Utd star was tricked by ‘STRANGE’ tactic of Aston Villa before conceding


FANS have praised Aston Villa’s never-before-seen goal that led to the opener against Manchester United.

John McGinn scored straight from a long-distanced free-kick at Old Trafford but it was the movement by Leon Bailey that caught the attention.

The Villa forward stood behind Onana as McGinn lined up his set-piece in the 21st minute.

As the Scotsman ran up to kick the ball, Bailey ran away, which appeared to distract Onana.

In one picture, Bailey looks like he is saying something to the Manchester United goalkeeper.

The ball then came in, missing all the on-running players and bounced past Onana and into the goal.

There was a VAR check but no offside was found and the goal was given.

Fans loved seeing the ingenuity behind the goal as they flocked to social media.

One supporter posted: “Within 20 seconds I went from thinking Bailey had completely lost it to thinking he was a genius.”

A second wrote: “Next level mind games from Bailey.”

A third commented: “Bailey’s mind games got to Onana.”

A fourth said: “Never seen this idea before, great stuff.”

Another added: “They put Bailey there to distract Onana and it actually worked.”

The visitors quickly made it two as Leander Dendoncker fired home just five minutes later.

At half-time, Eniola Aluko blamed Onana for letting the goal in.

She told Amazon Prime: “There is a lot going on, but the minute the ball bounces he should have come for it.”

The goal gave Aston Villa the lead in their Premier League meeting at Old Trafford.

Patrice Evra, though, believed that United was the better team and that they could have won if they had been more efficient.

And the Frenchman was right as United ended their goal drought in the Premier League with goals from Alejandro Granacho (brace) and Rasmus Hojlund.
