Manchester United came from two goals down to claim a 3-2 victory over Aston Villa at Villa Park on Saturday, thanks to second-half substitute Javier Hernandez.

Luis Suarez restored parity when he converted a Jamie Carragher flick-on from close-range after a Liverpool corner, meaning Brendan Rodgers returned to Anfield with a well-earned point.
Arsenal drew 3-3 with Fulham at the Emirates Stadium, after Mikel Arteta spurned the opportunity to take all three points when he missed a stoppage-time penalty for the Gunners.
Everton overturned a 1-0 deficit to claim a 2-1 victory over Sunderland at Goodison Park. Marouane Fellaini cancelled out Adam Johnson's opener, before turning provider for Nikica Jelavic, who scored the all-important winner.
Reading and Norwich played out a drab 0-0 draw at the Madejski Stadium, while Southampton were held 1-1 by Swansea City at St Mary's after Nathan Dyer returned to haunt his old club.
Charlie Adam's first Stoke City goal secured a 1-0 victory against winless QPR at the Britannia Stadium, while West Brom won their first away game of the season, with a 2-1 triumph over Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium.
And finally, West Ham maintained their impressive early season form with a 1-0 victory over Newcastle United at St James' Park, to lift themselves to sixth in the table with 18 points from 11 games.
In tribute to the best of the action, GiveMeFootball brings you five of the best Premier League goals of the weekend…
Nikica Jelavic | Everton
Marouane Fellaini provides an exquisite 'round the corner' assist, for Everton poacher Jelavic, who rarely misses from six yards out!
Andreas Weimann | Aston Villa
After Chris Smalling bounces off the imposing frame of Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke, the Belgian forward lays back for Weimann to hammer home from the edge of the box.
Javier Hernandez | Manchester United
Paul Scholes, in the centre circle, set Hernandez scampering clear down the inside-right channel, the ball became caught under his feet in the box but in a flash it was out again and rolling beyond Brad Guzan and into the back of the net.
John Terry | Chelsea
The Chelsea captain was give too much space in the Liverpool box, and diverted a thumping header past Brad Jones, into the top corner.
Sergio Aguero | Manchester City
City were fortunate that the ball found its way to Aguero on the right of the box, but there was nothing lucky about his finish, with the Argentine turning inside Steven Caulker before slotting cooly past the helpless Brad Friedel.
