Valencia 2 – Manchester United 1
It took until the final stages at the Mestalla for Man United to start playing against Valencia.
Jose Mourinho’s side lost their final Champions League group game against Los Che.
Marcus Rashford, a second half sub, scored a consolation for United.
Carlos Soler opened for Valencia in the first half, while a comical Phil Jones own goal handed Valencia the win.
Paul Pogba’s big miss vs Valencia
Man United should have found the target through Paul Pogba.
The midfielder missed a glorious chance from a corner.
Pogba was ultimately flagged offside by the linesman, however TV replays revealed the Pogba was onside.
Marouane Fellaini nodded a ball back into the danger area from the set-play, and the ball ran free to Pogba at the back post.
Pogba should have scored. Instead his effort missed the target completely.
It’s also worth noting that Pogba came close to setting up Man United’s leveller.
Pogba sent in a cross to Juan Mata in the 89th minute but Mata missed.
