It seems like Cristiano Ronaldo has just arrived at Manchester United and has already started to break records at his club.

After scoring on Sunday in United's last gasp win over West Ham away from home, Ronaldo has now scored in his third consecutive game since his second debut for the Red Devils.

His goal at the London Stadium also meant that the 36-year-old has now scored in 66 stadiums since the 2003/04 campaign, more than any other player, a record previously held by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to SoccerLaduma, who quote The Sun.

Ronaldo will have the chance to set new records and reach new heights in the Premier League, especially when it comes to stadiums like Stamford Bridge, Elland Road and Turf Moor among others, where he hasn't scored in his career.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo took to social media after Manchester United's win and posted a motivational message to fans and his team.

West Ham wasted a number of chances in the game courtesy of Jarrod Bowen and Nikola Vlasic, but did open the scoring on the half hour as Benrahma, unmarked on the edge of the box, saw his shot deflect in off Raphael Varane.

United's instant response came from Ronaldo, who scored from a sumptuous Bruno Fernandes cross.

Jesse Lingard came back to haunt the club where he was on loan last season as he scored an incredible winning goal for the Red Devils in the 89th minute. David De Gea then followed a topsy-turvy day for United with a penalty save from Mark Noble in injury time.
