Cristiano Ronaldo in inspirational message to Man Utd fans as he lifts lid on targets
Cristiano Ronaldo has giv’en an indication about his ambitions for the season after playing a leading role in their stirring 2-1 victory over West Ham at the Lon’don Stad’ium.
The return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Old Trafford has given the club and fans alike a notic’eable jolt. Any fears of Ronaldo’s signing being more for show have already been allayed. After just three matc’hes, Ronaldo has already notched four goals and looks like produ’cing every time when found in and aroun’d the box.
Indeed, he ne’tted the equa’liser in the win shortly after Said Benrah’ma’s defle’cted opener and may have helped hi’mself to a hat-trick.
And when Jesse Lingard fired a late winner, there was still time for more dr’ama with Mark Noble miss’ing an injury-time pen’alty.
Here, we rated and slated the players’ perform’ances.
It’s that kind of grit and determi’nation that United will need if they are to win the title. And after the match, the Portug’uese supe’rstar took to Instagr’am to reflect on the win.
In the post, Cristiano Ronaldo spoke of the battle United had overcome and sugg’ested he is is aiming to win the Pre’mier League this season.
“Every game in the Pre’mier League is always an amazing fight for the three points,” he posted on Instag’ram.
“Today we got to see a gli’mpse of all the obst’acles that we will find on our way, but we have to keep our mind set on our goals.
“Together! Str’ong! Foc’used! Let’s go, Devils!”
The win lifts Uni’ted up to 13 points fr’om their 5 games; a record matched by Che’lsea and Liverpool.
And any push for the title could come down to the slig’htest of margins. To that end, Ronaldo saw two pen’alty app’eals waved away the London Stad’ium.
The second was under a challenge from Kurt Zou’ma, with referee Martin Atki’nson wa’ving away Cristiano Ronaldo’s appeals.
