Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick and set a new world goal scoring record to help Manchester United forward bounce back from a devastating 4-1 defeat in last weekend’s Manchester Derby with a landmark 3-2 win over Tottenham 3-2 at Old Trafford.
Portuguese talisman who missed the Manchester Derby due to injury announced his return with two first-half goals, the first one, an absolute belter.
Twice he scored, twice spurs got back in the game, first through Harry Kane’s spot-kick and the second, a Harry Maguire own goal.
However, nothing could deter the prolific forward, who went on to head in his third for the night, bringing his total career goal tally to 807, to become the highest goal scorer in the history of Men’s football.
The visitors failed to find a response to the third goal and the victory moved United into fourth place, while Conte’s remain fifth on the log with 47 points.
