Photo gallery: Valencia 2-1 Manchester United

by Leo Nieboer

Manchester United spurned a glorious chance to win their Champions League group by losing deservedly to Valencia at the Mestalla.

The hosts took the lead early on through Carlos Soler before Phil Jones scored a truly unbelievable own goal soon after the break.

Man United rallied late on, halving the deficit through Marcus Rashford, and should have equalised on a night where Juventus lost 2-1 at Young Boys, meaning that avoiding that Jones own goal and Juan Mata finishing a glorious chance late on would have seen Jose Mourinho’s men top their group.

But, alas, it was not to be. Here are the best photos from a nightmarish evening in Spain.
