Daley Blind was particularly delighted with a clean sheet after Manchester United eased to a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa on Friday night.

The Netherlands international continued his fledgling centre-half partnership with Chris Smalling at Villa Park after the pair helped the Red Devils ease to an opening day victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

And the Blind-Smalling combination managed to prevent Villa from troubling United goalkeeper Sergio Romero, whilst 20-year-old Adnan Januzaj scored a first-half winner for Louis van Gaal’s side.

And the former Ajax midfielder took to Instagram to reflect on three important points for the Red Devils:

“Very happy with the 3 points and the clean sheet! The fans were amazing again! Thanks for your support!! #MUFC 🔴”

Meanwhile, United’s £25m summer signing Memphis Depay heaped praise on the travelling supporters after the winger missed a great chance in the second half to secure three points:

“3 points again! The #mufc supporters did a great job to !”

Bastian Schweinsteiger, who completed a £15m move to United from Bayern Munich last month, was in a determined mood on the photo-sharing app:

“Second game, second victory. Come on, Red Devils! #mufc”#

Goal-scorer Januzaj, who started his first game since February, was particularly pleased with his 29th-minute winner:

“Good win and happy to score! #mufc”

“Nothing better than a win to finish my birthday off. Well done team!”
