Unai Emery admitted that Aston Villa's 2-1 defeat to Manchester United at Villa Park was "tough" to take.

Rasmus Hojlund scored first, but Douglas Luiz equalised just after half-time for the home side. As Villa tried to score again, Scott McTominay came off the bench and scored the winning goal with just four minutes of normal time remaining.

The win leaves United just five points behind Villa in the Premier League table. Speaking after the game, Emery said his players did what he asked on the pitch.
