 Exclusive: Cristiano Ronaldo scores again but mistake from replacement Jesse Lingard and Aaron Wan-Bissaka red card sees Manchester United lose to Young Boys


Cristiano Ronaldo’s Manchester United honeymoon is over as the Red Devils suffered a shock 2-1 defeat to Young Boys in the Champions League.

The Portuguese made a blistering start to the clash in Switzerland, however, as he opened the scoring after latching onto a delightful Bruno Fernandes cross from the left.

The course of the match turned ten minutes before the break when Aaron Wan-Bissaka was shown a red card for a late challenge on Christopher Martins.

Man United went into their shell after that and the home side, managed by ex-Huddersfield boss David Wagner, carved out good opportunities for the remainder of the match.

They levelled on 66 minutes as Moumi Ngamaleu turned in a low cross from the right past David de Gea.

It looked set to be honours even at the end but a dreadful backpass from Jesse Lingard, who came on for Ronaldo late in the second half, went straight to Theoson Siebatchu, who scuffed in the winner in the final minute of stoppage-time.
