Highlights: Villarreal 0-2 Man Utd

Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho in the final 15 minutes earned managerless Manchester United an important victory away to Villarreal in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night.

Michael Carrick took temporary charge at the Estadio de la Ceramica two days after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was relieved of his duties following a humiliating 1-4 hammering away to Watford in the English Premier League.

Portuguese superstar Ronaldo continued his record of scoring in every game in this season’s competition by chipping the ball over goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli after Fred had won back possession for the Red Devils.

As the Spanish La Liga side pushed for an equaliser United caught them out on the counter-attack, with Jadon Sancho wrapping up the three points with a powerful effort that went in off the underside of the crossbar.

Victory means Manchester United progress as group winners as Atalanta could only draw 3-3 with Young Boys later in the evening.
