Manchester United superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo is widely considered to be one of the greatest players in the history of the sport, with the striker creating/breaking numerous records during his career so far.

Ronaldo was at it again during United's 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Saturday, as he scored the opening goal, while also providing an assist on the night. His performance on the night ensured that he equalled a mark held by Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba.

The 36-year-old became the the oldest player in the Premier League to score a goal and register an assist in a single game since Drogba did the same seven years ago in 2014. Ronaldo has now scored seven goals in 10 appearances in all competitions, with four of those coming in the Premier League.

It was much needed win for both United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, considering that they were coming into the game on the back of a 5-0 humiliation at the hands of Liverpool last week, with the Red Devils jumping to fifth place in the Premier League table with 17 points from 10 points, ahead of rivals, Arsenal on goal difference.

Ronaldo and United will want to continue this good form when they face Atalanta in the Champions League on Tuesday, 2 November.
