Ronaldo shines on his return to the Premier League as the Red Devils shoot down the magpies to score all three points.
Manchester United beat Newcastle United 4-1 in the Premier League on Saturday.
All eyes were on Cristiano Ronaldo when he stood on the pitch at Old Trafford for the first time in 12 years – and he made sure he lived up to expectations.
Ronaldo scored a brace on his second debut for Manchester United. He tapped home from close range to score the goal before using a tight left foot to restore his side’s lead after Javier Manquillo equalized for Newcastle United.
Bruno Fernandes made the scorers list with an absolutely beautiful goal and fired a shot from 25 yards that flew past an outstretched Freddie Woodman into the net.
If the atmosphere at Old Trafford wasn’t electrifying enough already, substitute Jesse Lingard added a fourth place in the final moments of the game to keep the crowd ecstatic.
All in all, it was an outstanding performance by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men, who are currently at the top of the Premier League table.
