Cristiano Ronaldo saves Manchester United from dismal defeat at Atalanta
The Guardian says This was the same tired story of Manchester United’s season. A powder-puff rearguard, an errant midfield, an overreliance on Cristiano Ronaldo to somehow pull the result their way.
And he did it: yet again. For the third time in Group F the Portuguese levelled at the last, his fifth strike of the group stage a low volley that avoided the amateurish United being consigned to their second defeat.
Before Ronaldo’s intervention, the night’s chief culprits were the dismal Harry Maguire and Paul Pogba, the (supposed) leader of the defence and engine room, who were liabilities and, despite the late escape, the questions will continue regarding Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s position in the buildup to Saturday’s derby against Manchester City at Old Trafford.
