“They (Villa players) were confident, they played a good game here,” said the Villa boss.

“They’ve played several teams before coming here. Brentford were 4-0, drew with Manchester City and played very well with Chelsea.

“My challenge here is to be consistent and regular in our ways.

“I think it was very important today to do that against Manchester United, who haven’t won in a long time.

“We are due to play Manchester in Brighton on Thursday and Sunday, but the next challenge will be tough because this team didn’t follow the regularity of those games.”

United’s counterpart Ten Hag was visibly frustrated with his side’s play at Villa Park.

When asked if he felt his team deserved more, Ten Hag said, “No.

“You start the game in the first half, you start the second half, you lose. When you start a game like this, you get a beat.

“I think a free kick can be stopped because the wall is too far. OK, it’s a small detail, but it’s the small details that make the difference in top football.

“But we weren’t fresh, so it says it all from us.

“When we start the game, we always have a posture. I think that is one of our highest standards.

“We are really in the lead and ready to play in every game we have played so far.

“We didn’t run them, especially at the start of the game. We lost the fight because we didn’t follow the defensive rules.”

Ten Hag said the number of crosses sent to substitute Cristiano Ronaldo in the first half was “ridiculous”.

But the United boss isn’t enamored of his side’s first defeat since the 6-3 derby draw with Manchester City.

“It’s disappointing, but I know it won’t just turn upwards in the process,” he added.
