Cristiano Ronaldo break another Premier League Record As He Score And Assist Goals In Same Game
Cristiano Ronaldo break another Premier League record as he scored and assisted in the same game.
It’s yet another record for Ronaldo’s ever-growing collection, who has continued his fine form in front of goal since returning to Manchester United.
Ronaldo put in his best performance in his second stint for the club in Saturday’s 3-0 thumping of Tottenham, which has resulted in the sacking of Nuno Espirito Santo.
Manchester United needed a big reaction following their 5-0 humbling at the hands of Liverpool last week and Ronaldo sent them in the right direction as he opened the scoring in the first-half with a sensational volley.
The goalscorer then turned provider after the break, as he effortlessly danced his way past Oliver Skipp before playing a pin-point ball through to Edinson Cavani, who rounded the goalkeeper before rolling home.
Marcus Rashford rounded off the game with a lovely finish of his own, but it was Ronaldo who was the star of the show and his performance has seen him claim yet another record – having scored and assisted in the same game at the age of 36 years and 267 days.
However, he has to share the accolade with Chelsea legend Didier Drogba who, coincidentally, did the same thing at the exact same age back in 2014.
