Ole Delighted to Deny City | Maguire Injury Concern

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says denying Manchester City their title party on Sunday was the best part about Manchester United's 3-1 win at Aston Villa. United came from behind once again to win all three points at Villa Park thanks to second-half goals from Bruno Fernandes (pen), Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani, meaning City still need three points to secure the Premier League title. If United lose to either Leicester (Tuesday) or Liverpool (Thursday), or drop points in both games, City will be crowned champions, and even if United go on winning, City can still win the title by taking matters into their own hands by beating Newcastle on Friday night. But Solskjaer was glad not to arrive in Manchester on Sunday evening to a party on the blue side of the city. "That's a good thi...
