Tuanzebe, a United academy product, toured the U.S. with the Red Devils this summer, but has been allowed on loan to gain first team experience.

After their well-documented financial problems and the takeover by Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens it was probably a relief for Villa to be able to concentrate on football again.

Bruce's side got the goal they deserved in the 70th minute through Elmohamady, who fired into the bottom corner following a poor clearance from goalkeeper David Marshall.

Manager Steve Bruce was unable to buy any players due to a transfer embargo only for new owners to come in and put the club on a more stable footing.

But Villa levelled within seven minutes, Tommy Elphick making the most of slack marking to glance in a deft header from a flawless left-wing Grealish corner.

Hull City tried to restore their lead, however, the Villans maintained composure and defensive shape, ending the first-half 1-1.

That left the stage for Scottish defender Hutton to grab a rare goal and ensure that Villa, who lost to Fulham in last season's playoff final, enjoyed the flawless start to the season.

Aston Villa capitalised on a host of errors to win their opening Championship game of the season 3-1 at Hull City, with Ahmed El Mohamady on the scoresheet against his old club.
