Luciano Narsingh scored a second-half winner as PSV Eindhoven came from a goal down to beat Manchester United 2-1 on a night of setbacks for the English side in the Champions League.

United left back Luke Shaw suffered what appeared to be a serious injury and was taken off on a stretcher in the early stages of the Group B game.

Memphis Depay returned to the club where he made his name and reminded spectators at the Philips Stadium of his prowess with a stunning 41st-minute opener.

PSV, however, caught the visitors napping at a corner in first-half stoppage time as Hector Moreno equalised before a swift break away set up the 57th-minute winner.

Juventus also came from behind to hand Manchester City their first defeat this season as Mario Mandzukic and Alvaro Morata gave the Italian champions a 2-1 win in Group D.

Premier League leaders City went ahead after 57 minutes when Vincent Kompany, climbing all over Giorgio Chiellini, saw the defender head an own goal.
