BREAKING: Ronaldo scores hat-trick to help Man United sink Tottenham


Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first hat-trick since his return to Manchester United to help the Old Trafford outfits sink Tottenham Hotspur to move into Champions League position.

The 37-year-old who was restored into the team after missing humiliating defeat at Manchester City last week, hit a stunning long-range strike to give them the lead in the 11th minute, only his second goal of 2022.

Harry Kane levelled with a penalty following an Alex Telles handball, then Ronaldo converted Jadon Sancho’s cross at 38th minutes to ensure United maintained lead at the interval.

Harry Maguire scored an own goal to equalise for Spurs before Ronaldo powered in a header from a Telles corner for his hat-trick.

The victory means Ralf Rangnick’s men are into 4th position with two points ahead of Arsenal who have four games in hand.
