Marcus Rashfords seventh goal of the season, turning in Antonio Valencias low cross on 32 minutes, proved the winner in Villas 24th defeat of the season, which leaves them an insurmountable 15 points short of safety with four games left.The West Midlands club end their 28-year stay in the top-flight with one of the poorest campaigns from any Premier League side - and they went out with a wimper. The fall and fall of Villa Aston Villas fall has been years in the making, but how did it happen? Substitute Rudy Gestede went closest late on when he hit the post from a corner but United should have scored more, with Memphis Depay hitting the post in stoppage time, as Wayne Rooney made his first start in over two months after injury. Aston Villa caretaker manager Eric Black says it is a difficult day for the club after his side were relegated to the Championship Villas fate has appeared a foregone conclusion for some time, with the club sitting bottom of the division since November 2 and winning just three games all season, but that will do little to soften the blow to one of Englands biggest clubs.With victory, meanwhile, United move to within a point of the Champions League spots, with fourth-placed rivals Manchester City playing Chelsea on Saturday Night Football on Sky Sports 1HD, and they deserved their win. Marcus Rashford scored his seventh Manchester United goal of the season The hosts were buoyed by the return of Rooney, making his first start since February 13 as one of five changes to the side that won at West Ham in midweek, with boss Louis van Gaal mindful of another game against Crystal Palace on Wednesday and an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley next weekend.Rooney was lively and influential from the start and his side bossed the opening 20 minutes, with Marouane Fellaini and Chris Smalling both heading wide from corners before Juan Mata danced into the area and should have found the target from 12 yards. Juan Mata says hes delighted Wayne Rooney has returned to the Manchester United line-up following their 1-0 win over Aston Villa At the other end, Jordan Ayew and Kieran Richardson smashed speculative efforts over the bar from distance as Villa struggled to cope with Uniteds movement, and Valencia found space on the right to pick out Rashford for a well-taken opener.Villa had a debatable case for a penalty as Ayew was brought down in the box, but got nothing, and thee forward continued to be a rare live-wire for the away side, almost finding the net on the stroke of half-time when a close-range shot was blocked by Smalling.

Wayne Rooney made his first start in over two months following injury United then had their own shout for a penalty when Rashford was brought down by Alan Hutton, but got nothing either, before the young striker got up and was put through by Mata to flash a shot wide of the near post.Depay and Daley Blind flashed excellent crosses in front of the Villa goal as United hunted for a second, but they were fortunate not to draw the game after Gestede emerged from the bench to cause problems.The goal was gaping as the forward tried to turn home Ayews cut back, but his shot was blocked, before he volleyed against the upright with six minutes left.But Villa had to win to have any hope of embarking on a great escape and, as they have done for most of the season, they fell short of what is required to win a Premier League football match.Soccer Saturday verdict - Charlie Nicholas Charlie Nicholas says Aston Villa were no threat to Manchester United at Old Trafford, despite only one goal seperating the teams I thought it was a stroll in the park for Manchester United. They didnt pass it quick enough, didnt get the ball into Rashford early enough. Rooney came back and enjoyed pinging the ball about but never really looked a threat in front of goal. For the first 20-25 minutes he did not really link up with Rashford and it was all a bit slow and deliberate. But, once he started spraying the balls around, you could see he was starting to enjoy it. He comfortably felt his way back into the game. The fourth spot is vital for Manchester United and I thought they could have filled their boots today but they just strolled through the game.Villa looked like a team who need the season to end now, understandably so. They had a little bit of fight, when Gestede came on. He hit the post and he should have scored just before that. Ayew up front gave United a bit of work. Looking at the group they have that might be saleable, I think Ayew would be an asset, but they have got big decisions to make defensively. They have got a lot to do in a short space of time Louis van Gaal wasnt pleased with the tempo of Manchester Uniteds football, despite beating Aston Villa 1-0 Player ratingsMan Utd: De Gea (7); Valencia (7), Smalling (7), Blind (7), Rojo (6); Schneiderlin (6), Fellaini (6), Mata (8), Rooney (8), Depay (7); Rashford (7)Subs used: Martial (6), Lingard (6), Fosu-Mensah (6)Aston Villa: Guzan (6); Hutton (6), Lescott (6), Clark (6), Cissokho (6); Bacuna (5), Westwood (5), Gana (7); Richardson (6), Ayew (7), Sinclair (5)Subs used: Gestede (7)Man of the Match: Wayne Rooney ' ' '

Wednesday kicked off the official start of Montreal Canadiens training camp with the players undergoing team medicals. Jaromir Jagr Jersey . For one player, in particular, having a good performance at this camp will be extremely important. Louis Leblanc didnt have the year he would have liked with the Hamilton Bulldogs last season. After being sidelined with a high ankle sprain Leblanc had difficulties trying to get his game going again: he had 10 goals and eight assists in 62 games in the AHL and played no games with the Canadiens. "When you go into the corners you never really trust your ankle the way you did before" Leblanc said about coming back from his injury, but he did say he was able to put that injury behind him this summer. Habs general manager Marc Bergevin acknowledged at his season-ending press conference that Leblanc did take a step back last season compared to the previous year, where he played 42 games with the Canadiens. Leblanc, a local boy from Kirkland, a suburb of Montreal, was selected 18th overall at the 2009 Draft that was held in Montreal at the Bell Centre. One can only imagine what the pressure is like for this young hockey player to succeed. Therefore, Leblanc has decided to work on his mental game with the help of a few different sports psychologists: Dr. Sylvain Guimond, who is the Habs sports psychologist, Dr. David Scott who works with the Hamilton Bulldogs and Dr. Wayne Halliwell. "When youre younger you dont realize that the mental part of the game is important as well," Leblanc told the media. With Brian Gionta and George Parros both recovering from injuries and questionable for the start of the season, there is a possibility that if Leblanc has a good showing at this camp he might earn himself a spot back with the big club. Other Camp Notes: Tomas Plekanec arrived in Montreal on Tuesday after missing the Canadiens annual golf tournament last week due to the passing of his father. Plekanec, being an only child, stayed back in his native Czech Republic for a little longer than usual to be with his mother during this difficult time. Brendan Gallagher will continue to live with Josh Gorges once again this season. Gorges got married this summer in Hawaii. Brian Gionta (bicep injury) and George Parros (shoulder) will take part in Thursdays practice but will not play in the scrimmage which is open to the public at 11am on Thursday in Brossard. Players who will not practice due to injury are: Alexei Emelin (not expected back before December), Steven Quailer and Joonas Nattinen. Rick Tocchet Jersey . The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said.

Making his third start since replacing Tim Lincecum in the rotation, Petit (5-3) faced just two more than the minimum and matched his season high of nine strikeouts. The right-hander needed only 84 pitches to finish the gem, the fewest in a nine-inning complete game by any pitcher in the majors this season. Petit, who threw 26 first-pitch strikes, came within one out of a perfect game against the Diamondbacks on Sept. 6, 2013. Leadoff hitter Angel Pagan had four hits and scored twice. Joe Panik went 5 for 5 and Gregor Blanco added two singles to help San Francisco win its seventh straight home game. Overall, the Giants have won 10 of 13. Ender Inciarte homered leading off the fourth to end Arizonas seven-game homerless drought, but manager Kirk Gibsons club managed only three hits the rest of the way. The Diamondbacks have lost four straight. The Giants stranded seven runners in the first three innings but took advantage of control problems by starter Wade Miley (7-11) Andrew Susac drew a bases-loaded walk in the first inning and Pablo Sandoval did the same thing in the second. Pagan scored both times. Buster Posey also drove in a run in the second when Diamondbacks first baseman Mark Trumbo couldnt handle a bounced throw from shortstop Didi Grregorius, who was trying to complete a double play. Kris Letang Jersey . . Miley, winless since July 30, gave up three runs and five hits in two innings. He walked four and struck out one. Gregor Blanco singled and scored on an error by Inciarte in left field. Posey added a sacrifice fly to make it 5-0. Petit did the rest in his best start since his near-miss against Arizona a year ago. He retired his first nine hitters — five by strikeout — before Inciarte went deep. The ball landed in McCovey Cove, the 101st splash hit since AT&T Park opened in 2000. Petit also singled in the second — his first hit of the season — and scored on Poseys grounder.
