Watch: Leon Bailey provides instant impact in preseason draw with Manchester United

Leon Bailey put Aston Villa on the board just minutes after being introduced in a 2-2 preseason draw with Manchester United in Perth, Australia on Saturday.

Introduced after halftime, the winger cut in from the right side, beat Victor Lindelöf off the dribble, and curled a low shot around David de Gea to cut the Villa deficit in half (2-1).

In added time, Bailey took the corner that led directly to Calum Chambers’ equalizing goal. The defender rose to meet Bailey’s cross in the box and secured a draw for the Villans in their final preseason friendly in Australia.

Villa, now back in the UK, wrap their preseason with a friendly at Rennes on July 30.
