Football is a crazy game and it can even get crazier if you have the glossiest names in your ranks. When we talk about glossy monikers of the sport, Cristiano Ronaldo tops the list conveniently. A new feather got added to his heavily bedecked crown as the Manchester United forward hammered home a clinical display featuring a gilt-edged hattrick to usher Manchester United to another win.
They say that you need a leader to show you the path in the darkest of times and the current campaign has offered very little hope to the Devils. With Atletico Madrid all set to travel to Manchester in the following week, it wasa important that Manchester United secure a win against Tottenham to keep their momentum going.
Following a heavy defeat at the hands of their city rivals in the preceding week, Rangnick was reprieved to witness the return of Ronaldo. As early as 12 minutes in the click, the Portuguese captain unleashed a searing thunderbolt to draw first blood for the hosts. He pranced his way past a couple of defenders, used the ample space offered to him by an unsure Spurs rearguard and hammered a picture-perfect strike into the top left corner of the net.
Despite Tottenham’s equalizer from the spot, the Portuguese was on a marauding run for the night and found himself cantering to be at the end of Sancho’s scouring low cross. His blistering run helped him to smash home the second of the night, allowing Manchester United to go into the breather with a slender lead.
Harry Maguire’s error in the second half once again cost Manchester United dearly as the Devils witnessed the English center-back veering the ball into his net, barely able to control his motion. However, whenever there is Ronaldo, you will always have hope. A marauding corner from Alex Telles was thumped into the back of the net as the Portuguese sharp-shooter averted his marker easily to slot home a clinical finish that would pen Ronaldo’s second-ever hat-trick for Manchester United.
The first of his United career came against Newcastle United while the second of his Devils’ days came at a juncture where Manchester United would desperately hope for him to replicate this feat day in day out. Twitter went crazy as Ronaldo smashed home his second hattrick in the colours of Manchester.
Premier League Hattrick.
14 years apart.
