Although both Aston Villa and Manchester United are experiencing particularly inconsistent starts to the 2019/20 campaign, these Villa fans have been reliving their encounter between the two teams from November 2010, with many bemoaning their recent record against the 13-time Premier League champions.
🗓ON THIS DAY: Saturday 13th November 2010

Goals from Ashley Young and Marc Albrighton had given the West Midlands side a two-goal lead in front of their home supporters, but United under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson fought back to secure a 2-2 draw.
That was courtesy of late strikes from Federico Macheda and Nemanja Vidic as they left Villa Park with a point.
Villa’s record against United is particularly damning since the turn of the millennium, having won just one game in 38 fixtures across all competitions. The video above reliving their 2-2 draw against the Manchester-based side has got these fans venting their frustration at such a poor recent record alongside their disappointment at the result itself.
Here are some of the best reactions following a video resurfacing of the fixture on its ninth anniversary.
How we didn’t win this game I’ll never know

I was very very angry after that game. We just can’t ever beat them at home can we? Hate them.
