5 main talking points after manchester United sink Villareal.

Ronaldo has five goals in five games since coming back to Manchester United. Ronaldo made the difference for Manchester United in the final crucial minutes of the game.

1. Alex Telles wonder goal.

Manchester United were awarded a freekick right at the edge of the box and Villarreal players were expecting Bruno Fernandes to try and pick out Cristiano Ronaldo who was in the box. Bruno however fooled them and picked out Alex Telles who volleyed the ball into the net to equalize for Manchester United. That must have come straight from training and it paid off for Ole's men.

2. Dalot given a harsh reality check.

Diogo Dalot decided to stay at Manchester United and provide competition for Aaron Wan Bissaka. After a successful loan spell Dalot was handed an opportunity to challange Wan Bissaka who was unavailable due to disciplinary actions. The Portuguese however did not do much to prove himself. He was the weakest link in the Manchester United defence.

3. De Gea ahead of Dean Henderson.

David De Gea was back at goal for Manchester United. The Spanish shot stopper was the one who was keeping the Spanish team out in the first half. De Gea was entirely responsible for keeping Manchester United in the game in the first half. His defence failed him terribly in the first half.

4. Maximize your chances.

This is for Villarreal. They could have easily scored five goals in the first 40 minutes. DanJuma would have scored a hat trick in the first half. He was taking on and winning against Diogo Dalot everytime but he lacked the finishing touches. The Spanish team paid dearly for all the missed chances.

5. Cristiano Ronaldo Last second, what a rush.

Who else other than Cristiano Ronaldo to win the game for you. Manchester United are not new at scoring last minute winners. How about a last minute winner from the king of Champions League? Cristiano Ronaldo won the game very late on for Manchester United. He now has two goals in two Champions League game so far.

6. Ole tactics paid off.

Ole has come under fire lately for bad tactics and making bad decisions. His decisions for tonight were spot on as his subs combined for the winner. Cavani was very lively for Manchester United and so was Lingard and Fred. All three players played a crucial role in the Cristiano Ronaldo goal. Lingard was the one who set up Ronaldo for the winner.
