Manchester United have struggled for results in recent times even with the inclusion of Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane to the squad, the Red Devils are yet to hit the ground running.
After being humiliated by Manchester City last week, the tactical capabilities of coach Ralf Ragnick was highly criticised while some also believed that the attitude of the players on the field of play were also quite questionable though the absence of their talisman might have also affected them.
Ronaldo’s return to the squad against Spurs did raise their hopes as the ex Real Madrid star returned from injury after missing their encounter against Manchester City. After goals from Harry Kane and and own goal from Harry Maguire, Cristiano Ronaldo’s hattrick sinks stubborn Tottenham side.
Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo in the 12th,38th and 81st minute ensured that Manchester United snatched all 3 points from Tottenham Hotspurs at the Old Trafford.
Yesterday’s hattrick has taken Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal tally to 12 in the English Premier League.
Ronaldo now has 806 career goals breaking the record of Josef Bican for most goals scored in competitive matches in football history. The former Sporting CP and Real Madrid man keeps on showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
