Honours even at Villa Park.
Home side full value for their point against in-form visitors.
Aston Villa took a surprise lead against in-form Man United with Christian Benteke easily finding space up against hapless centre-back Jonny Evans before firing in a cracker past David de Gea.
Though Man United arrived at Villa Park off the back of six straight victories they looked strangely out of sorts but were back in the game after a bright run from Ashley Young saw Radamel Falcao head in a leveler.
Ashley Young was once again in the thick of the action with the former Aston Villa man the victim of a robust, but not malicious, tackle from Gabriel Agbonlahor which saw the home striker surprisingly ordered off.
