Manchester United are back on track, according to Cristiano Ronaldo, after a thrilling 4-2 victory over Leeds.
United fared best with the challenging circumstances at Elland Road on their way to a three-point victory against their arch rivals from over the M62.
After connecting with Paul Pogba in the early minutes, Ronaldo squandered a fantastic opportunity.
That close-range miss, though, proved inconsequential in the end, as Harry Maguire, Bruno Fernandes, Fred, and Academy youngster Anthony Elanga all scored to level the scores.
When Elanga netted after the Swedish teenager had been injured by an object thrown from the Elland Road fans, it was a very wonderful moment for him.
However, Elanga and United had the last laugh as the focus swiftly shifted to the Champions League.
The Old Trafford giants are poised to travel out to Spain for their last-16 opening against reigning La Liga winners Atletico Madrid as soon as they return to Manchester from West Yorkshire. Back-to-back victories against Brighton and Leeds have rekindled optimism in the United camp as they prepare to resume their last push for silverware in Europe’s premier competition.
While using the social media platform Instagram, Ronaldo addressed the imminent change.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner issued a rallying cry to his teammates, supporters, and 404 million Twitter followers, saying: “A crucial Premier League victory before we turn our attention to the Champions League and travel to Madrid. We’re back on track now! We are a united front.”
After leaving United in 2003, Ronaldo spent nine years with Real Madrid, where he was a huge success.
