Manchester United played Sam Allardyce’s Blackburn Rovers on Saturday evening in a game where a win for the Reds would put title challengers Liverpool in a difficult position.
With the game being all square after Santa Cruz’s goal canceled out Rooney’s first half strike, the pressure was mounting on the Devils to pick up all three points at home.
Ronaldo was once again the victim of controversy as he escaped punishment after kicking out Blackburn’s David Dunn. The referee decided to let him go away with a warning only but then had him yellow carded after he appeared to have dived just outside the penalty box later on.
Locked on 11 goals in the EPL since scoring the winner against Everton at Old Trafford, Cristiano Ronaldo was determined to get his name on the scoring sheet this time round. And he didn’t fail to do it in a fashionable manner.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored Manchester United’s decisive goal on the night with a breathtaking free kick to record a 2-1 victory. The Red Devils are now seven points clear beyond the nearest title challengers Liverpool who dropped points on Sunday after a 1-1 draw at home to Manchester City.
Well, the Portuguese winger seems to be in a very good form lately, scoring goals, making tricks and flicks, and fiding back his pace with the ball.
United play Mourinho’s Internazionale on Tuesday at the San Siro in a battle of the Giants, with Ronaldo on one side, and Ibrahimovic on the other.
