Superb Ronaldo steers Man Utd back to winning ways

Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brilliant goal and created another as Manchester United ended their four-match winless run with a 3-0 victory at Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs started brightly and after Son Heung-min fired over, Cristian Romero had a goal ruled out for offside.

Ronaldo gave Man Utd the lead six minutes before half-time, when he brilliantly fired in a low, first-time volley from a tight angle after Bruno Fernandes picked him out with a cross.

Edinson Cavani doubled United’s advantage on 64 minutes when he ran on to Ronaldo’s through-ball and superbly dinked the ball over the onrushing Hugo Lloris.

Substitute Marcus Rashford added a third from Nemanja Matic’s pass with two minutes remaining to seal victory.

United move up to fifth on 17 points while Spurs are down to eighth with two points fewer.
