Manchester United need a Cristiano Ronaldo hattrick to keep their top 4 hopes alive. United started the game with an early goal thanks to a lapse in defense from Norwich. Elanga was quick to grasp the opportunity and passed the ball to Ronaldo who made in 1-0. Ronaldo then doubled Man United’s lead scoring a header from a corner kick and gave Man United a 2-0 lead.
Norwich fought back and pulled a goal back before HT and then Teemu Pukki scored another goal to level the game 2-2 and send shockwaves through Old Trafford. Just when Man United needed a saviour, Cristiano Ronaldo stepped up. Man United got a free kick around the 75th min mark and Cristiano Ronaldo smashed home the free kick to win the game for Manchester Untied and complete his 60th career hattrick.
Here’s what fans from around the World had to say about Cristiano Ronaldo’s fantastic hattrick:
Next up for Man United are two difficult fixtures vs Liverpool and Arsenal. If Manchester United somehow manage to get the 6 points from these two games, the Top 4 will be a very achievable target this season.
United still need to do a lot of work in defense as they continue to leak goals. United would need more of the same from Cristiano Ronaldo when they host Liverpool at Old Trafford in midweek.
