In a repeat of last season's UEFA Europa League final, where the Spanish side won on penalties, looked to be heading for a draw after another disappointing performance from Ole Gunnar's Manchester United but summer signing Cristiano Ronaldo linked up with Jesse Lingard to spark jubilant scenes at the end of Old Trafford Stadium.

Portuguese skipper Cristiano Ronaldo scored an injury-time winner as Manchester United came from behind to beat Villarreal in an action-packed Champions League Group F contest, their first ever win from the Unai Emery men in the last five encounters. Following his second goal from three games, below is how the UEFA Champions League golden boot table stands;

1. Sebastian Haller - Ajax

The former West Ham United star is currently the leading UCL topscorer with 5 goals from the opening three games.

2. Robert Lewandowski - Bayern Munich

3. Nkunku - RB Leipzig

The Bundesliga star man is currently joint second place with Lewandowski on 4 goals from 3 games.
