Macheda's turn and strike deep into stoppage time sunk Villa and put United on course for a record-equalling 18th title, as they managed to keep a resurgent Liverpool at arm's length thanks, in no small part, to the then teenager late goal against Aston Villa in a 3-2 win and against Sunderland the following week.
