Manchester United have been knocked out of the Champions League at the group stage after a 3-2 defeat at Wolfsburg.

The loss coupled with PSV Eindhoven's 2-1 home win over CSKA Moscow, proved United's undoing.

Anthony Martial gave United an early lead before Naldo and Vierinha's goals turned the game on its head.



The second goal was particularly impressive as they tore United's defence apart:



United did equalise thanks to Joshua Guilavogui's own goal with eight minutes to go.

But two minutes later, Naldo header put United 3-2 down and consigned them to Europa League football after the New Year.


Meanwhile, Manchester City have finished top of their Champions League group after coming from behind to defeat Borussia Monchengladbach 4-2.

David Silva netted in the first half but City went into the break 2-1 down before Raheem Sterling's brace and Wilfried Bony's clincher saw them top the group as Juventus lost in Seville.
