On Matchday five of the Champions League in Group F, an under-pressure Manchester United travel to Villarreal needing to avoid defeat to keep their fate in their own hands.
Michael Carrick is currently United’s Interim Manager following the mutual departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer from Old Trafford and will be turning towards his group of high-quality individuals to guide them through the rough patch that the Red Devils are in.
United are currently on seven points, level with Villarreal and just two points ahead of Atalanta and hold the head to head advantage over their rivals as it stands.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been nothing short of sensational for United in the Champions League this season, scoring five goals in four matches, averaging a goal every 66 minutes, including a late winner against Villarreal in the last meeting between these two clubs. The 36-year-old former Juventus striker has scored 139 goals in 180 Champions League matches.
