Cristiano Ronaldo sends message to Manchester United fans after 3-0 win
Cristiano Ronaldo had promised a response from Manchester United and he certainly delivered.
The Portuguese superstar scored one goal and provided an assist to inspire an away victory at Tottenham.
The first goal was a special one, a volley to take his career tally to 796.
Ronaldo sent a message to supporters after the win, showing how glad he was to be back to winning ways.
After a week in which he announced he is to become father to twins, Ronaldo has even more to celebrate tonight.
This was a perfect result for United in which the team even kept a clean sheet.
Ronaldo set up a goal for Edinson Cavani, his first assist since returning, and the Uruguayan’s first goal of the season.
United lined up with a 3-5-2, a total rethink after the 5-0 defeat to Liverpool a week earlier.
Tottenham were wretched, it has to be said, but United have found it difficult to play against Nuno Santo’s sides in the past.
This was the first time a Solskjaer side had scored three goals or more past one of Santo’s teams, and the re-worked approach worked out.
It helps when you have Ronaldo in the team. He is one of the best goalscorers of all time and he showed his class once again with his 11th career goal against Tottenham.
