Premier League all-time top scorer Alan Shearer claims Ronaldo is back to his best ahead of Manchester derby. He named the Portuguese ace among his picks for the Premier League Team of the Week.
Cristiano Ronaldo displayed an incredible performance in Manchester United’s 3-0 victory over Tottenham at White Heart Lane.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner scored an amazing volley to open the scoring for the Red Devils. But that wasn’t his only contribution to the Red Devils’ great victory.
Ronaldo also provided an assist for Cavani as the Uruguayan scored his first goal of the season.
In his review, Shearer who is a Newcastle legend wrote: “Back to his very best with a sublime volley when Man Utd needed him most. Not many players could have scored that. Also provided an assist for Cavani,”
He also highlighted Varane’s great impact at the heart of Man United’s solid defence against the Spurs.
“Man Utd needed a commanding defensive display and Varane provided it as his side eased to their victory at Spurs.”
By scoring his fourth league goal of the season, Ronaldo is now six goals behind Mohamed Salah on the league’s top-scorers chart.
However, considering the current form of the Portuguese superstar, one could imagine Salah facing serious competition later this season.
