  • Andre Onana was brilliant between the sticks for Manchester United
  • He helped the team beat high-flying Aston Villa 2-1 away from home
  • Chelsea legend John Terry was not impressed with his ball antics

Andre Onana was fantastic between the sticks for Manchester United in their 2-1 win over Aston Villa at Villa Park, but a former player was not impressed with his antics.

Onana, who has faced significant criticism this season, delivered a stellar performance as United fought hard for three crucial points, dealing another setback to Unai Emery’s team.

Rasmus Hojlund Hojlund continued his impressive goalscoring, beating an offside trap to put United ahead in the first half. Substitute Scott McTominay got the second for the visitors.

Per Sofascore, despite making eight saves, Douglas Luiz ruined the goalkeeper’s clean sheet with a brilliant effort in the second half.

John Terry berates Onana

Chelsea legend John Terry was not impressed with Onana spending too much time on the ball and hit out at the Cameroonian shot-stopper via his social media.

“Onana is getting on my nerves, slowing the game down and then keeps giving it away. Catch it and stay in your box! 🧤” he wrote on X.

The former Inter Milan goalie is one of the best in the world with the ball at his feet and was crucial to the Italian team reaching the UEFA Champions League final last season, but he sometimes takes too much time on the ball, slowing down the tempo of the game.

The former defender’s lamentation could be linked to being an ex-player and assistant manager for the Villans, who ended up on the losing side despite their performance.

Onana, despite conceding 33 league goals this season, has the most clean sheets with seven and could replicate his predecessor, David De Gea, who won the Golden Gloves last season.

Douglas Luiz mocks Onana

Sports Brief reported on Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz mocking Onana after drawing the home team level in the second half despite a first save from the goalkeeper.

The Brazilian star went down on his knees and performed the shimmy to troll the opponent, who made most of his saves during the game with his chest.
