VILLARREAL – Manchester United confirmed their place in the last 16 of the Champions League after beating Villarreal 2-0 at the Estadio de la Ceramica, Wednesday (11/24/2021) early morning hrs. Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho scored the two winning goals for Manchester United.

Michael Carrick for the first time led Cristiano Ronaldo et al from the sidelines. This is after Manchester United officially sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer from the coaching chair.

Carrick tried to make changes to the squad in this match. Bruno Fernandes, who used to be a regular starter had to sit on the bench.

Carrick’s scenario is quite strange considering that Fernandes is the only MU player who often spoils his teammates through his accurate passes. That is evidenced by the four assists given in the Champions League this season.
