13 Records Cristiano Ronaldo has broke since re-joining Man Utd

CRISTIANO RONALDO is back at Manchester United and back in the goals, scoring twice on his second debut for the club.

The Portuguese forward, 36, was clinical in front of goal in the 4-1 victory – but he did a lot more than just put the ball in the back of the net.

PASS IT ON

The forward’s pass accuracy was an impressive 86.7 per cent after completing 17 passes in the final third and creating one chance.

GOLDEN OLDIE

Only two players – former Man Utd stars Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes – have scored in the Prem at an older age than Ronaldo.

DOUBLE HUNDRED

The Portugal skipper now has 200 braces in his career – equalling Lionel Messi’s record.

GUNNER SUFFER

Ronaldo’s double against Newcastle means he has more Prem goals this season than Arsenal (one) and Norwich (one).

TAKE THE BALL

CR7 completed nine passes to compatriot Bruno Fernandes, seven to Luke Shaw, seven to Paul Pogba and five to Harry Maguire.

GIVE IT TO ME

And he received ten passes each from Pogba, Fernandes and Nemanja Matic.

WOW

Ronaldo is the first Man Utd No7 to hit a Prem brace at Old Trafford since he did in April 2009.
