Premier League, Manchester United-Newcastle 4-1: Cristiano Ronaldo’s brace decides

A return worthy of the best Hollywood screenwriter. On the day of his second debut at Old Trafford, 12 years after his last match for Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo signs the victory against Newcastle with a dream brace that launches the Red Devils to the top of the Premier League standings. All under the eyes of his football father, Sir Alex Ferguson, which took him to England in 2003. A magic by Bruno Fernandes completes the Lusitanian party. Poker signed by Jesse Lingard.

The chronicle in 7 key moments

11 ‘FIRST RING OF CR7 – Fake, dribbling in the area and conclusion that goes out on the outside of the net

28 ‘UNITED MESS – Shaw insults Bruno Fernandes with a throw-in that is too long in the De Gea area. Willock takes advantage of this but is in a hurry to finish and, instead of serving Saint-Maximin all alone in front of the Red Devils goalkeeper, kicks very high

45 ‘+ 2’ UNITED ADVANTAGE – He scored himself, Cristiano Ronaldo! At the end of Greenwood’s shot from outside the box, Woodman’s revisable save and easy tap-in by the Portuguese. Return in full Hollywodian style for Cristiano, 1-0 United

55 ‘DRAW OF THE NEWCASTLE – Manquillo scored! Restart of Almiron serving Saint-Maximin inside the penalty area: shot at the opposite post and 1-1 at Old Trafford

61 ‘DOUBLE OF THE UNITED – CR7 double, crazy! Red Devils restarted by Shaw: ball in depth, control and shot between Woodman’s legs. 2-1 Manchester, what a return for Cristiano!

80 ‘TRIO OF UNITED – Trio by Bruno Fernandes! Golazo from outside the box, as a champion. Broadside that goes out under the intersection of the goalposts after Pogba’s assist. Game on ice, 3-1

90’+2′ POKER AT LINGARD – Goleada United with the shot of the Englishman after the veil of Martial. Second assist from Pogba

The best in the field

CRISTIANO RONALDO – Change shirt, change home, change coach, change teammates, but his hunger for goals doesn’t change. Performance from phenomenon: two goals with very few balls played. What else?

The worst in the field

Freddie WOODMAN – Both of Cristiano’s goals are propitiated by two ducks. Bad day

Allegri: “CR7 no longer wanted to stay at Juve. Let’s look ahead”
