Thanks for joining me, and make sure to stay tuned to Bleacher Report for all the reaction and coverage of this, and all the other EPL games today.
90+4'- A good spell of pressure from Villa ends with Smalling making a much needed header clear.
Just a minute left for Paul Lambert's side to score an unlikely third.
92'- Villa begin to pepper the United box with long ball after long ball, hoping one falls to Benteke with room to shoot.
Incidentally, every time the Red Devils have led the league after ten games, they have won the trophy. You wouldn't bet against them, would you?
90'- United now look to pass this game to death before Villa can create one last opportunity to equalise.
What a stunning second half this has been. What a substitution by Sir Alex to bring on Javier Hernandez at halftime.
88'- GOAL UNITED!
Can anyone be surprised? Javier Hernandez scores a sensational hattrick by getting his head on the end of Robin van Persie's deep, searching free kick.

87'- El Ahamadi earns a yellow for a needless tug on Anderson.
The impressive Barry Bannan makes way for Fabian Delph as Lambert makes his final change of the day.
85'- Rafael trips Agbonlahor to give Paul Lambert's side some much needed respite.
You have to feel Villa will be the happier side with a draw today. They may have been the better side by a shade for the first hour, but they've been battered since then.
83'- Van Persie's attempted pass to Valencia falls to Rafael who has a go from 30 yards.
The Brazilian full-back's shot flies miles over Guzan's goal, though.
81'- It's Villa's turn for a substitution as goal scoring hero Weimann makes way for Aussie Brett Holman.
Ten minutes left here. Where's Kiko Macheda when you need him?
79'- Anderson is the last United player to come on as he replaces a limping Wayne Rooney. Sir Alex will be hoping his is not a serious injury problem.
I'm not sure there's a soul alive who's betting against the Red Devils completing what would be yet another remarkable comeback today.
77'- It's Villa's turn to break as Gabby Agbonlahor almost gets on the end of Lowton's deep cross.
End-to-end stuff at Villa Park. Surely the scoring isn't done yet?
75'- Rooney is given room to shoot from 25 yards out, but his effort drifts wide of goal.
United have scored 26 goals in 10 league games heading into today this season. If they can continue this rate, they'll have bagged 99 come May.
73'- CHANCE UNITED!
Unbelievable. Robin van Persie hits the crossbar twice in 60 seconds. This time it's a long range howitzer that rattles the frame of the Villa goal.

72'- CHANCE UNITED!
A Wayne Rooney corner is headed on to the crossbar by van Persie. Almost 3-2 United.
Paul Scholes makes way for Tom Cleverley meanwhile. A mixed day for the Ginger wizard.
69'- United turn up the heat on Villa as some neat passing on the perimeter of the area fails to create a clear shooting opportunity.
Villa try to break quickly, but Smalling nips in front of Benteke to rob the Belgian of a good shooting chance down the other end.
67'- CHANCE VILLA!
Great save de Gea as Weimann gets on the end of a beautiful Bannan cross to head at goal.
Either side of the Spanish keeper and we're at 3-2 with Weimann having scored a hattrick. Game on.
65'- Michael Carrick is the latest player to go into the referee's book for a clumsy challenge on Ireland.
Perhaps Villa should have just left it at 1-0. Since their second United have looked a different team.
63'- GOAL UNITED!
Unbelievable. It's Hernandez again who scores for the Red Devils.
Rafael's deflected cross finds the Mexican at the far post, and he's on hand to volley home from a difficult angle.

62'- Agbonlahor heads on for the advancing Benteke, but Carrick is back to clear.
Gabby Agbonlahor went into today's match ranked as Villa's danger man. But it's been powerful Belgian striker Christian Benteke who's given United all sorts of problems.
60'- Paul Scholes heads wide from a searching van Persie corner. The diminutive midfielder just couldn't get any purchase on the cross.
United are back in the ascendancy now as they search for a leveller.
58'- GOAL UNITED!
It's super sub Javier Hernandez who ties things up. Scholes dinks a great ball over the top, and the Mexican rolls his shot under Guzan's legs.

57'- Steven Ireland goes into the book for a rash challenge on Smalling.
Paul Lambert's side are one of the worst disciplined in Britain. They've already picked up 24 yellow cards and 2 reds this season.
55'- Van Persie tries his luck from outside the area but his shot is quickly charged down. Villa will have no problem with United taking those kinds of shots.
Since the Premier League's inception, Aston Villa have only won three of their 40 matches against Manchester United. Can they buck that trend today?
52'- Yet another Valencia cross fails to find a United shirt in the Villa area.
United are in a state of shock now. This had been pegged as a simple fixture by some in the buildup.
50'- GOAL VILLA!
The upset is well and truly on here at Villa Park as Weimann grabs his second soon after halftime.
Agbonlahor pulls away from Rafael before having a driven cross turned in at the far post by Weimann.
