Villa relegated after loss to United

Marcus Rashford’s lone goal condemned Aston Villa to relegation

Aston Villa have been relegated to English football’s second tier for the first time since 1987 after a 1-0 defeat at Manchester United.

Marcus Rashford scored the only goal, sweeping Antonio Valencia’s cut-back through goalkeeper Brad Guzan’s legs in the 32nd minute.

Villa were second best for much of the game, though they did hit a post late on through Rudy Gestede’s volley.

It was a ninth straight loss for the visitors and left them 15 points from safety with only four matches left.
