Michael Carrick’s seventh minute goal put Manchester United ahead and was the only goal of the game. The goal was surrounded by whisperings of accugations against Muslera, Galatasaray’s goalkeeper. Carrick’s ability to stay on his feet got him the goal, but people voiced the questions about what would have happened if the goal hadn’t gone in. Would there have been a penalty? Would Muslera have been sent off for tripping Carrick in a goal scoring position? The game ended with no more goals, giving United the three points and putting them in second place in the group.

At Goodison Park this evening, Everton paid respect to the victims of the Hillsborough disaster with one of classiest gestures we’ve seen. In 1989, 96 Liverpool supporters died as a result of a crush in an overcrowded section of Hillsborough stadium. Tonight Everton showed that - despite a century-long rivalry with their cross city enemies - the whole world is with Liverpool FC in remembering those who were lost. Bravo.
