Fans love Douglas Luiz’s s***housery after goal against Man United


Douglas Luiz’s equaliser against Manchester United has been hailed as ‘totally unhinged’ on Sunday afternoon.

The Aston Villa star cancelled out Rasmus Hojlund‘s earlier strike by reacting quickest to the ball pinballing around the United box to divert home Leon Bailey’s cross.

And the Brazilian immediately pulled out a bizarre celebration, shaking his chest in front of Andre Onana and Raphael Varane in a move known as ‘the shimmy’.

While United fans were left perplexed, rival supporters absolutely loved it.

One took to social media site X to say: “Celebration for the ages from Douglas Luiz. Totally unhinged Barclay’s behaviour.”

Another wrote: “Loving that celeb from Douglas Luiz.”

And a third put: “Douglas Luiz with some magnificent s***housing of Raphael Varane. Neal Maupay eat your heart out.”

Hojlund had struck earlier in the contest to continue his remarkable run of form in front of goal.

He latched onto Harry Maguire‘s header from a corner to score in a fifth consecutive Premier League match, making him the second-youngest player to do so at 21 years and seven days behind Nicolas Anelka.

Villa had looked in fine fettle, though, and fully deserved their equaliser when Luiz scored.

But while the former Manchester City star pulled out quite the celebration, it did not last long.

That was because Scott McTominay popped up with a late winner by planting a header past Emi Martinez.

It was his seventh goal of the season in the Premier League, giving the Red Devils all three points at Villa Park.

It puts United five points behind Unai Emery’s men in the race for the top four.

And it was also a brilliant result for Erik ten Hag to do away with the early season pressure when United were struggling.
