Australia's Perth After giving up a last-second equalizer in a 2-2 draw with Aston Villa in Perth, Manchester United's tour of Thailand and Australia was prevented from going undefeated.


At halftime, United led 2-0 thanks to Matty Cash's own goal and Jadon Sancho's third goal of the season. Before Calum Chambers scored with a header in the waning seconds, Erik ten Hag's team still appeared to be on track to capture their fourth straight victory after Leon Bailey pulled one back after the break.


Three hours prior to start, an inspection took place after Perth had significant rain.

The playing surface, which had previously been used by Leeds and Crystal Palace, made it difficult for players to maintain their balance, but United still dominated the first half thanks in large part to another strong showing from Ten Hag's front three of Sancho, Anthony Martial, and Marcus Rashford.


After receiving a far better response than he did in Melbourne, Harry Maguire came near with an early header that Emiliano Martinez well stopped before Sancho forced the Villa goalkeeper to dive low to his left after carrying the ball from 40 yards out.


After 25 minutes, Martinez was eventually defeated.


Sancho volleyed in the cross from six yards out after Rashford held onto the ball on the left and watched for Luke Shaw's overlapping run. Midway through the first half, a downpour made the field even worse, but by the time halftime rolled around, United had expanded their lead.

Sancho escaped down the right and crossed for Rashford, whose finish hit Cash and looped into the net.


Ten Hag started the second half with the same starting lineup, but Villa got off to a better start.


Almost immediately after coming on as a halftime substitution, Bailey attacked the United defense, dribbled past Victor Lindelof, and curled a shot around Maguire and into the bottom corner.


After a mostly uneventful second half, Villa's goal appeared to be simply a consolation, but in the second minute of stoppage time, Chambers rose highest to head in a corner from the right.


With victories over Liverpool, Melbourne Victory, and Crystal Palace, United will complete their four-game trip with three wins and a draw.


The team is scheduled to return to Manchester on Sunday before their subsequent exhibition match against Atletico Madrid in Oslo on Saturday.
