Jadon Sancho scores Manchester United’s opening goal as Cristiano Ronaldo and David de Gea also help the Red Devils advance to the Champions League round of 16 in Michael Carrick’s opener in charge


He will always remember Michael Carrick’s first game at the helm of Manchester United as the Red Devils’ 2-0 win at Villarreal sealed their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s lob and Jadon Sancho’s very first goal for the Red Devils secured the victory in a game where David de Gea also came to their aid.

The Spanish goalkeeper made a top-notch hat-trick, pushing back Moi Gomez and Manu Trigueros in the first half.

The save pick came after the break as De Gea brilliantly shot down to deny Trigueros again – and it gave the opposing team the platform to get all three points.

Man United took the lead in the 78th minute when Ronaldo lobbed Geronimo Rulli after loose play behind Villarreal.

And the victory was sealed in stoppage time when Sancho completed a deft counterattack with an emphatic finish off the bar to open his goal tally for the club.
