Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first Manchester United hat-trick this weekend in a 6 goal second half thriller against managerless Newcastle.
He was of course very proud of his first hat-trick and surely his mum will be content after her comments earlier in the season.
He now has a total of 16 premiership goals this season, only 1 behind his last years total. Although he only has 2 assists this season so far, compared with a total of 16 last year. His overall record is 22 in all competitions so far this season, which is only 1 behind the total from last year!
