Philippe Coutinho sparkled in his debut with Aston Villa after participating as a substitute and led them to a 2-2 draw with Manchester United in the English Premier League on Saturday.
It seemed that United would achieve its second victory in one week against Steven Gerrard’s team, after Bruno Fernandes scored a goal in each half, and the first came after a fatal mistake by goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.
Villas performance improved a lot in the second half, but Coutinho left an impressive mark after he participated after Fernandez’s second goal in the 67th minute.
Coutinho contributed greatly to reducing the difference by passing to his colleague Jacob Ramsey, who hit the goal strongly.
Ramsey then passed the ball to Coutinho, so the former Liverpool and Brazil player managed to equalize from close range in the 82nd minute.
Coutinho almost stunned United with a massive shot saved by goalkeeper David de Gea to prevent the hosts from winning.
United occupies seventh place with 32 points from 20 games, while Villa comes in 13th place with 23 points.
