The veteran Portugal international turned back the clock with a remarkable treble for Manchester United in their 3-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford, setting two new records in the process.
Ronaldo had not been in the best of form coming into this game, but his outstanding effort ensured that the Red Devils won 400 Premier League home games.
According to Opta Joe in the tweet below, this also means that United has beaten Tottenham at home more than any other team in a Premier League home encounter…
The victory keeps United’s fading top-four aspirations alive, while also dealing significant damage to Tottenham’s chances of qualifying for the Champions League.
Both teams will have a difficult time catching up to Arsenal, who have been in excellent form and still have games in hand on both of their rivals.
For the time being, MUFC supporters may enjoy Ronaldo’s individual brilliance, which made a small piece of history this weekend.
