Cristiano Ronaldo: Grabbed another late goal as Real Madrid saw off Levante

Cristiano Ronaldo: Grabbed another late goal as Real Madrid saw off Levante

Barcelona recovered from the surprise of going behind early on against Real Valladolid to continue their record-breaking start to the Primera Division season with a 4-1 triumph.

Barca fell behind to Javi Guerra's glancing header from a corner but they were behind for just four minutes before Alexis Sanchez drew them level with a thunderous shot.

Xavi put Barca in front in the 52nd minute following a slick move and there were further goals for Sanchez and Neymar as a three-point lead was opened up at the summit.

Cristiano Ronaldo struck another last-gasp winner as Real Madrid snatched a 3-2 victory away to Levante to stay within five points of Barcelona, two behind Atletico.

Papa Baba Diawara put Levante in front in the 57th minute but his goal was quickly cancelled out by Sergio Ramos.

Levante struck in the 86th minute through Nabil El Zhar but Real equalised for a second time thanks to Alvaro Morata before a deflected strike from Ronaldo - whose last-gasp penalty sank Elche last week - sealed another thrilling win.

Jonathan Viera stepped off the substitutes' bench to score a late penalty as Rayo Vallecano beat Real Sociedad 1-0 to double their points tally for the season and climb off the foot of the table.

Both sides squandered chances before Viera was fouled by Claudio Bravo in the 88th minute, and the 23-year-old made no mistake from the spot.

Coro netted twice as Elche overcame Espanyol 2-1 to win at home for the first time this season.

The hosts bossed the first half and deservedly took the lead six minutes before half-time through former Espanyol player Coro, but were pegged back by Thievy Bifouma's equaliser on 65 minutes.

The visitors looked as if they would go on and win the game as they continued to press Manu Herrera's goal, but Coro got his second goal with little more than a quarter of an hour remaining, which was enough to deliver a 2-1 win and all three points.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
