21 of the best pictures from Aston Villa’s final pre-season game in Australia against Manchester United

The game against Manchester United rounded off a fantastic 2-3 weeks for Villa on the other side of the world.

Aston Villa’s pre-season tour of Australia came to a close this past weekend with their final outing coming against old foes Manchester United in Perth.

It was a complete wash-out of a game that was in danger of being postponed prior to kick-off but it did ultimately go ahead and those in attendance were treated to a competitive 2-2 draw.

United had taken a 2-0 lead in the first-half through Jadon Sancho and an unfortunate own-goal from Matty Cash but the claret and blue fought back in the second, goals from Leon Bailey and Calum Chambers making sure the spoils were shared.

Here’s 21 of the best pictures from the contest, including plenty of the claret & blue faithful showing off their colours down under.
