Premier League, Manchester United vs Newcastle United Highlights: Cristiano Ronaldo announced his return to the Premier League with a brace on his second Manchester United debut, helping his side win 4-1 against Newcastle United at the Old Trafford Stadium on Saturday. After the comprehensive win, the Red Devils went to the top of the table with 10 points from four matches.
After head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer handed the 36-year-old Ronaldo a first start for Manchester United in 12 years, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner opened the scoring right at the stroke of half-time. He restored his team’s lead with a left-footed strike after Javier Manquillo had equalised for Newcastle in the second half. Bruno Fernandes added a third goal from 25 yards in the 80th minute and Jesse Lingard finished off the party with a right-footed shot from inside of the box in injury time.
