Villa 4 Man Utd 4

Villa 4 Man Utd 4

On this day in 1955, Villa were involved in 4-4 thriller at home to Manchester United.

Two goals from Johnny Dixon had home fans in raptures before Eric Houghton’s men were hit by three United goals before half-time, from Jackie Blanchflower, Colin Webster and Dave Pegg.

When Pegg added his second goal nine minutes after the interval, Villa looked beaten, but Dave Hickson reduced the deficit on the hour and Pat Saward equalised four minutes later.
