Portugal icon, 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 professional career so far.

Ronaldo was at it again during Manchester United's 2-0 win over Villarreal in the Champions League on Tuesday, scoring a goal which meant that he became the first ever player to score in each of an English club’s first five matches of a single European Cup/Champions League season (excluding qualifiers).

The 36-year-old ensured that the Red Devils qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League, which was also his 10th goal in all competitions for United since returning to Old Trafford in the summer.

Despite United's poor performances this season, the striker has been brilliant for the club in front of goal and has managed to maintain his usual standards in front of the goal, with the Portugal icon scoring important goals for the club on a regular basis.

Ronaldo holds a number of records in the Champions League and is currently the all-time highest goalscorer in the competition's history with 140 goals to his name and will look to further add to his tally as he looks to ensure that the Red Devils mount a serious challenge for the trophy come the end of the campaign.
