Manchester United suffered an embarrassingly early exit from the Champions League as they were beaten by a superb Wolfsburg side on a night of high drama in Germany.

Anthony Martial put United ahead after 10 minutes, but Naldo equalised before the Bundesliga runners-up went ahead following a delicious 11-pass move that was finished by Vierinha.

A late own goal by Josuha Guilavogui gave United hope - at the time PSV Eindhoven were drawing which meant Louis van Gaal's side were going through as it stoof.

But Naldo found the net shortly after to earn a 3-2 win, and with PSV beating CSKA Moscow 2-1, the three-time European champions were out of the Champions League.

So who was to blame for United's exit? Here, we take a look at the individual performances...
