Jack Grealish scored an impossibly cool goal to give Aston Villa an early lead over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The Villa captain, 24, arrived inside the left side of the box to collect an Anwar El Ghazi cross and saw United midfielder Andreas Pereira give him some room.

Grealish then coolly zipped a shot across the box and just inside the far post, disarming Red Devils goalkeeper David De Gea to make it 1-0.

It’s his fifth goal to go with five assists in 14 appearances for Villa this season, and his 20th senior goal for his boyhood club.

El Ghazi was injured on the play and tried to go on, but subbed off in the 17th minute.
