MANCHESTER UNITED and Aston Villa fans were left raging as Sky Sports went to an advert break DURING the game.
As the match entered stoppage time with the scores level at 2-2, coverage of the clash suddenly disappeared and was replaced by some unplanned ads.

After less than a minute the game came back on and viewers had not missed anything of note.
But it still left football fans beside themselves as puzzled Sky viewers took to social media.
One said: “Sky going to adverts during an injury in Villa v Man Utd. That better not be a thing now.”
While another added: “Sky have put adverts mid game??? What are they doing?”
Sky Sports presenter Dave Jones was then forced to apologise for the technical issue at full-time.
He said: “Really apologise if you were watching that on Sky Sports Main Event and we lost you for a couple of minutes due to a technical hitch.
