After netting just once in his last 10 games, Cristiano Ronaldo was back in business on Saturday. The Manchester United frontman scored a historic hat-trick against Tottenham in a huge 3-2 victory that propelled the Red Devils into the top-four, for the time being.
In the process, Cristiano became the top goal-scorer ever in club and country, scoring 807 goals. Absolutely iconic. He truly stole the show at Old Trafford and proved just why he’s still a force to be reckoned with in the final third at 37-years-old.
Here are some of the best reactions from Manchester United Twitter following the much-needed three points vs Spurs:

All three of his goals for Manchester United were top drawer finishes. In just the 12th minute, he smashed home a world-class strike outside of the 18-yard box that flew past Hugo Lloris with authority then slotted home a fine pass from Jadon Sancho for the second. The winner in the 81st minute was courtesy of an Alex Telles corner, where Cristiano thumped it home with his head.
Life at Old Trafford hasn’t been the easiest for Ronaldo, but he showed on Saturday that he’s still more than capable. Hopefully, he can stay in form and keep scoring goals for Manchester United as they aim to finish in a Champions League spot by the end of the campaign. Up next is a decisive UCL Round of 16 second leg mid-week against Atletico Madrid on home soil.
