UCL| Ronaldo & Sancho score as United defeat Villarreal

Manchester United were able to put the drama of the sack of their manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, behind them when they took on Villarreal in Spain.

Interim manager, Michael Carrick started Van De Beek today, his first start in, well, forever, while Bruno Fernandes was on the bench.

Today, they were able to contain their opponents and keep them from conceding early on.

However, United themselves also struggled to find the back of the net for the best part of the game.

All the goals eventually came towards the end of the game, as Cristiano Ronaldo scored with just 18 minutes to go, before Jadon Sancho put the icing on the cake in stoppage time, in what was an overall great display for the former Dortmund man since his summer move.

United now sit top of Group F, on ten points while Villarreal occupy second on 7 points.
