Aston Villa fans love what Emi Martinez did after Philippe Coutinho's goal against ManUnited

The Villa 'keeper was at fault for United's opening goal but he was able to celebrate the late equaliser with a lot of relief

Aston Villa fans are loving what Emi Martinez did to celebrate Philippe Coutinho's late equaliser against Manchester United.


The Argentinian shot-stopper was at fault for United's opening goal with a huge howler.


As the visitors quickly took a free-kick, Martinez was unable to stop a strong strike by Bruno Fernandes, fumbling the ball between his legs and over the line.


He recovered fairly well, however, reacting well to keep out further efforts from United prior to Fernandes' second goal of the night midway through the second-half.


Jacob Ramsay sparked some motivation into the Villa team with his neat finish from close-range, setting up a nervy finish to the game.


And Martinez was able to let out a huge sigh of relief when Coutinho turned home a low cross to snatch a late equaliser for the home side.


In fact the Argentinian was so excited by the late goal that he jumped over the advertising board in order to join the Villa fans celebrating behind him.

Here's what some Villa fans had to say about his jubilant celebrations...
