Philippe Coutinho scored on his Aston Villa debut as his new club came roaring back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Manchester United.
Ralf Rangnick’s side looked to be cruising with 13 minutes remaining after two Bruno Fernandes goals but Jacob Ramsey and Coutinho, who sprung from the bench with 20 minutes to go having joined on loan from Barcelona in midweek, created a famous comeback at Villa Park.
Despite being without Cristiano Ronaldo due to a hip injury, United started with great intent and Fernandes gave them the lead after his tame strike from range somehow bobbled through the legs of Emiliano Martinez.
The game looked safe for the visitors when Fernandes finished in ruthless style after a misplaced pass from Morgan Sanson had allowed United to break.
However, they couldn’t see the game through as Ramsey got the Villa Park crowd rocking with a well-taken finish with 13 minutes left.
Just five minutes later, Villa were level when Coutinho was on hand to strike from close range after a brilliant assist from Ramsey.
