Form is temporary and class is permanent. Cristiano Ronaldo showed that once again for Manchester United.

Ronaldo scored one goal and assisted another in Manchester United’s 3-0 away win at Tottenham.

He is the oldest player in seven years to score a goal and assist another in the same Premier League game.

Opta notes that bizarrely, he was the exact same age to the day, that Didier Drogba was when he did the same in 2014.

Chasing down Ole

Ronaldo is now up to 125 goals in total for Manchester United across his two spells at the club.

This is now just one behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United tally of 126.

Ronaldo has already overtaken Andy Cole (121) since his return.

 

But he might just want to keep an eye on Marcus Rashford, who now has three in his last four games.

Rashford is now up to 91 goals, and is United’s 24 highest scorer of all time, with Ronaldo 17th.

Wayne Rooney is number one on the scoring charts with 253 in total.

Ronaldo has 796 all time goals for club and country, fast closing in on 800.
