Old Trafford has once again witness its feverish comeback wins as it took the club, 90+5 minutes to turn their 0-1 loss into a 2-1 win through a slick one-two pass between Lingard and the ever goalscoring amour, Ronaldo.
Manchester United who looked helpless on the night during the first 45 minutes were only have to be awaken to the occasion in the 53rd minutes of play after Villareal took the lead through Paco Alcácer after the defence of the Red Devils went slothing once more on the night.
Though United quickly responded through a free kick which was sumptuously delivered by Bruno Fernandes to Alex Telles to equalize, the club intermittently shows some promising play with question mark on their final delivery and confidence in the final third.
Missing from the Red Team is their talismanic captain; Harry Maguire and last season’s Manchester United’s Player of the Season, Luke who were not included in the line-up for the night due to injuries.
First 45 minutes was all for the Yellow Submarines as it took Manchester United’s No. 1 and Spaniard Stopper, De Gea, to deny on numerous occasions the club from his home country from hitting the back of the net at least 3 times.
With seconds to spare into the additional 5 minutes, Ronaldo who is on his 178 appearance once again came to the rescue with a delicate return pass from Lingard in the 6-yard box to secure the all 3 points for United. The result means United champions league campaign is back on.
Meanwhile, World Fastest 100 metres man, Usain Bolt who was in the stands to watch the game had predicted Ronaldo to be on the scoresheet. United Next match is against Atalanta at Old Trafford.
